Remembering the Uptown Backstage Cinema
I painted this box this week as part of a Bell Box beautification project in the Yonge and Bloor area. I based the piece on the signage of the Uptown Backstage theatre which was demolished about 10 years ago.
A big thank you to 6 St. Joseph House for securing the funding to make this project happen.
As part of this project, Artists had to choose a historical photograph from the City of Toronto archives to base their artwork on. As I am a big fan of abstract and text-based art, I steered clear of horse and buggy photographs and went for some bright colours instead.
