WOSNAN: MURAL UNVEILING & EXHIBITION
Monday September 11, 2023
Please join us this Friday Sept 15 for this special mural unveiling and exhibition in collaboration with the Consulate of Colombia in Calgary. For the 2023 BUMP Festival our international artist this summer is Wosnan, who has joined us all the way from Bogota, Colombia. He is leaving us with an incredible new installation right beside the Colombian Consulate on the Beltline.
Many of you have been sending in photos of this wall as it progresses, stating your excitement about having such a fantastic artist in our city. We are happy to announce that this mural is now complete, and is called ‘The Last Maple Leaf’. In an homage to Canada and the richness of our forests, Wosnan also highlights in his beautiful mural the decline of our green areas due to human intervention. Rising from nature an ancient guardian of the forest who merges the realms of magic, other worlds and dimensions, spirit and space stands tall looking over our city – in hope, in wonder, in a challenge to ask us to be better protectors of our environment.
Sept 15 will be Wosnan’s last day in Canada, he will also be selling his special prints at this event. Please join us for this final end to our summer festival 🙂
