Story Behind This Mural

Bruno’s mural is an epic portrayal of the beauty and richness of life in Lake Ontario. Lake Ontario, while the smallest of the Great Lake Basin, is yet the 14th largest lake in the world. But plagued by Viagra in the water, fish unfit to eat or driven to extinction, and with crucial environmental standards ignored, its incredible diversity of birds, fish, reptiles amphibians and plants are under threat, especially those associated with shorelines, sand dunes, lagoons, and wetlands.

Artist Statement

With the climatic changes and the neglect of many human beings unfortunately all this may come to an end. On this piece I devoted friendship and coexistence between man and nature in a sustainable way. An imaginary and magical fish station is flying next to a fishing boat in search of life, as the birds migrate to other land in times of cold and difficulties in this case given the opportunity to fish do the same and choose their own future.
