About This Project

Our Sanctuary is about the safe space that Mississauga provides and is intended to evoke an idea of a place where all are welcome, can grow and also thrive. The composition pulls visual reference from the architecture of Mississauga’s Civic Centre, the natural world, and items from everyday life. Adrian used scale in a playful way to create a familiar yet surreal landscape where anything is possible.

Project Partner

These works of art were made possible by BMO in collaboration with STEPS Public Art. BMO’s National Mural Series was designed to create opportunities to celebrate local communities and the people who live and visit them. By working with hyper local artists to design murals with meaning and impact specific to each location, BMO hopes to bring art to locations where artists and community members might not otherwise have an opportunity.

At BMO, we are proud to be partners in these communities, celebrate our customers, and support local artists. These beautiful pieces of art not only express BMO’s values and celebrate diversity they also provide opportunities to surprise and delight those visiting our branches. We look forward to expanding this program and curating many more murals in branches across Canada.
