BEN JOHNSTON

2016

Ben Johnston was challenged to create a strong statement for the neighbourhood that would capture its urban vibrancy, industrial history, entrepreneurial culture, and the resounding sense of pride within the community. “We wanted the verbiage and aesthetic for each mural to stand the test of time and pay homage to the Liberty Village community and the people who live, work and play here,” says Ben. “We created these murals in a way that is intended to bring the words and sentiment to fruition in the most captivating way possible… and at the end of the day every mural has its own original way of coming to life.” Both murals reflect Ben’s bold, typographic, and vintage-inspired flare.
