This mural was a first-time collaboration between local artists, Graeme McCormack and Alison Woodward. This piece was inspired by its laneway location in East Vancouver. Garbage decorates the heads of the spirits like tiny fascinators as East Van’s quintessential crows and raccoons watch from a distance.
Artist Statement: “We wanted to include inspiration from the site that we were given, in an alleyway where there was a dumpster against the wall before it got moved to paint here. We wanted to do something to reference that to that with our garbage spirits who are having a good time in the alleyway, they’re peaking out at the community garden. Basically a positive influence in a place that not a lot of people necessarily want to hang out.”
