Suitable for all ages
We foster memories from smell, from sound + from buildings and permanent structures which can flash back if any of the three return to our senses; but those faces who also contribute to the creation of these memories are not necessarily a part we will experience again. Elicser doesn’t want these faces to disappear. Elicser’s proposed installation creates a space where Toronto will line up and make sure these faces are not forgotten.
Elicser’s project will tap directly into the energy of the community. His installation will be centred around the celebrated “HUG ME” tree on Queen West. Elicser first painted the tree in 1999 + he has since been celebrated as one of the city’s best graffiti artists. Toronto residents relate to the HUG ME tree as a cultural landmark which celebrates both love and a wonderful local artist.
Elicser Elliott explores narrative structures, new surfaces and new sensations, through the lens of two decades in the global street art community.82
