ARTIST AT A GLANCE
Location: Toronto, Ontario
Monica Wickeler Is a trained visual artist who has worked in the large-scale painting industry in Toronto for more than 15 years, in outdoor advertising for MURAD as an advertising mural artist and in the film and television industry as a scenic painter. Monica has found a love of community and public-based art, painting murals and street art for Toronto Business Associations, Pan Am Para Pan Games, private property owners and during community and City events. For the past several years Monica has taken part as an Artist in Residence at several TDSB schools and has become an Artist Mentor.
Painting in large format allows Monica to engage with the community on a visual level. Producing a mural and finding a way for it to enliven and impact an otherwise undervalued wall or section of the streetscape is a challenge she enjoys.
