Artgang is proud to have co-produced this mural project in 2011 &  published this related limited edition silkscreen print Miles EL MAC MacGregor in 2015. A public mural is usually the completion of a process that would involve research, studies, sketches, mock ups and elaborate execution. We found it interesting to allow this public piece to have a new and additionnal existence, years after it’s initial application.

This piece is a very meaningful mural to us and became a local landmark. It’s titled « Spirit of Summer » and was the artist’s expression of the vitality you can feel this time of year, here. Montreal is one of his favorite cities, and it seems to hold a unique creative energy. The artist also knows how cold, drab and grey it can get here when it isn’t summer, so he almost felt a sense of obligation to paint this with more color than usual. In addition, this is kind of an interpretation of a young Rose Phillips, the namesake of the neighborhood this is in, « Rosemont ».
