Sidney, BC, Canada
In the last few years of the 1990s, IceBear embarked on the creation of a number of large exterior wall graphics and murals in Victoria and Sidney, BC. Perched high on a scaffold for months at a time, his work became the focus of much interest, the site of each project becoming a stopping point for tourists and for locals on their daily walks. One of the Vancouver Island newspapers dubbed him ‘the Mural Maker’ and he was awarded a Community Arts Award for his contribution to the communities in which he worked.
The largest of these murals was over 70 feet long and close to 20 feet high, and almost every one had a significant amount of three dimensional work, often called ‘bas relief’, to highlight the main components or features.
Enjoy exploring Sidney on foot and discover each of these impressive murals.
