CABBAGETOWN SOUTH GOES VIRAL

Cabbagetown-KawhiA new mural appeared on 50 Pembroke Street, and it is just in time for the big playoff adventure for the Raptors and the city. On the heels of other vinyl interpretations elsewhere in the city, this hand painted Mural  “Kawhi Leonord…king of the north” is an original created by well-known artists Javid Jah and Moises Frank (AKA Luvsumone). Both artists have a long track record of street art and upon further research are highly accomplished, showing in galleries, installations and in back alleys with permission. (Interesting to note if you want to turn a back alley garage into something spectacular they are for hire).

 

We reached out to the artists and asked them if there was anything that inspired you? “We were really just trying to capture a moment for the city coming together, sharing together and being together”, said Javid.
This thing has gone viral with the NBA Finals in town the mural has gone worldwide, every international: broadcaster, newspaper, tv crew are taking images of the mural. “ The response has been crazy,” said artist Javid Jah.
When asked about how they pick a location, they said, “the wall chose us”. The wall was donated by the owner of the home and it really is quite exceptional and an excellent example of “people doing great things”.
