We're back with another mural! Talented, local artist Chris Cherry just completed an origami-inspired elephant mural. Can you guess where? It's at Waterworks Park right by the splash pad! This mural has small components reminiscent of Chris' style, including his circle rings, x's and other hidden elements (look for the mouse!), all while incorporating the warm and playful colours of yellow, orange and red. As summer is coming to an end, add this to your 2021 summer bucket list because you don't want to miss it!
Chris Cherry has been practicing abstract art professionally since 2011. From a very young age, Chris was always inspired by everything art related and graduated from the well know arts school H.B. Beal Secondary. Chris currently has 4 murals around the city of St. Thomas with the intention of adding more to his portfolio. He enjoys painting large scale most of all, as it allows him to experiment and not hold back.
The ‘Track to the Future’ mural project is coordinated by Railway City Tourism in collaboration with Andrew Gunn Consulting and young & free press with generous financial support from the Estate of Donna Vera Evans Bushell.
