"The Art of Reading"

On March 11, 12 and 13th, 2015, I worked on a mural project at Parkdale Elementary School in Montreal.

I created a background of book covers and pages to illustrate the theme of Reading.

I decided to use the song "Livros" (Books) from Brazilian composer Caetano Veloso. It's the only song I know that speaks directly about reading in a very poetic way, saying "Reading is responsible for the expansion of the Universe" amongst other beautiful verses.

Bravo to all students and art teacher Karolyn Liverman for this beautiful realization. Karolyn is responsible for infusing this piece with great attention to details.
