“Returning To Cultural Basics” is a tale through the seasons, from dawn to dusk, from birth to death to re-birth. The artwork is a multi-media collage illustrating local ecological patterns and humanities place within it all. The work […]
An artful advertisement commissioned by Budget Rent-A-Car. This wall sits at the foot of Calgary’s Bow building and is frequented daily by people working hard from 9-5. Combining classic sign painting techniques with loose, expressive strokes there becomes a bridge […]
A homage to our home, our ecology, our community, where we always are.
At this turning point in human history, where people from all walks of life have begun searching for a more fulfilling and sustainable way of living, these PDC graduates show what is possible, and in doing so demonstrate the essence of the permaculture movement that is sweeping Calgary and the world.
