“IGNITE” [THE MURAL]
by Geraldine Svic // April 29, 2019 — Present
Technique: Acrylic paint, screen printing, and wheat paste.
Chosen as one of nine lucky artists by The City of Mississauga, Geraldine Svic was given the opportunity to create a mural for The City of Mississauga’s Sculpture Court Skate Park. “Ignite” explores the feeling of home—celebrating her roots and her origin of creativity. It empowers perseverance and the momentum to thrive. It embraces the feeling of security and warmth driven from one’s own sanctuary.
Starting on April 29, 2019—all nine artists were joined and followed a mentorship by local artist MANGO PEELER for this week long public art project. Together, they formed The Dream Team, whom created a series of ten murals that now proudly stand side by side at The City of Mississauga’s Sculpture Court Skate Park.
