The Kingsway Mural Project
We are proud to unveil our latest mural in partnership with Rust Magic International — “Nimihitowin”: Dancing/Movement by Nelson “Dedos” Garcia.
This mural is a tribute to two Nehiyaw (Cree) artists: iskocês (lunacee) and mitêw kisêynô (creeasian).
From the artist: “It is a celebration of the positive work that these two artists do. They embody both the teachings of their ancestors and cultural generosity to share knowledge; as well as the innovation and universality that is Hip Hop culture.
This mural was painted as a gesture of gratitude to all of the ancestors who survived in order for us to be here today and as recognition that we are also ancestors praying for the generations still to come. We are stars dancing across the Vast!”
We invite you to explore Nimihitowin, on the upper level across from the GAP.
Check this page often as it will be updated with new mural photos as they are completed.
Kingsway is home to over a dozen murals by local and international mural artists of all genres.
Partnering with Edmonton’s Rust Magic mural festival, they have brought tens of thousands of square feet of murals to Kingsway. The murals showcase art from experienced artists as well as some artists just getting their start.
Below are just a few of the pieces at Kingsway.
These are temporary murals and it is not known how long they will be on display.
