Another Maltby

Here's another mural by local artist Jeff Maltby. This one is on one wall of Ellice Recycle Ltd., a recycling company near Point Ellice. At 152 feet (about 46 meters) wide this is probably Maltby's largest work. Even with my wide angle lens at its widest I wasn't able to get the whole mural in though the photo above has about 90%. (Of course I never thought to use the panorama function of my camera, which would have been perfect for this!) As usual, the artist offers us a historical perspective, looking at recycling in the Victoria's past. I like everything this artist does and I hope that more of our city's firms will commission him to decorate their buildings with our history seen through his eyes.

It really is terrific, .. what a 'diamond buried in the rough' of the industrial part of town.
I love how the mural's realism bleeds in with the reality of the garage door on the left. And the door in the centre was incorporated as innocuously as possible.

That's a great mural. I agree with you that more murals in Victoria would be very nice to see. I fell in love with all the ones in Chemainus.

It's wonderful! Good to see a company spending $$ on art.
