The longest single graffiti installation in the city of Toronto aims to bring the spirit of the new Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship to life during its construction.
The imagery “reflects the rich history and global impact of engineers from the University of Toronto,” creators say, adding that it “also looks toward the future, highlighting the pioneering research, transformative education and game-changing commercialization that will take place within the CEIE.”
The CEIE, located at the heart the university’s St. George campus, will offer space and facilities where students, researchers, alumni and industry partners will work together to get great ideas off the ground.
The artist behind the graffiti is Jason Wing, who also goes by the name SKAM, and who has been creating street art for 25 years.
The street art installation will be one of this year’s featured exhibits at Scotiabank Nuit Blanche.
