Believe it or not… there’s a bit of Brooklyn in Toronto’s CityPlace neighbourhood. In fact, there’s even a bit of Tokyo, London, and Hong Kong! Next time you’re in the area, pop into the lobby of 10 Capreol Court and look up over the concierges desk. That’s where you’ll find Brooklyn artist Jose Parlas “Bridge” installation!
Now look a bit closer! The white scribble is actually a story of Jose’s life in New York city (Brooklyn) and how it has become his bridge to other cities around the world. Two pieces were commissioned by Concord Adex Developments for the Parade 1 lobby at CityPlace.
Watch Jose speak about the painting and describe the story behind the Bridge!
