Mural Art explained by Pierre Hardy

Murals often interact with their immediate environment as well as the walls they are produced onto. Murals live in a three dimensional space. A successful mural concept will always take from the realities of its immediate environment. Windows, adjacent trees, sidewalks, sun exposure, lighting conditions, scale, are just a few elements a muralist will consider when elaborating a mural concept.

Although the Tiger murals are all part of the same art venture, I hope that they will be regarded as one major creation. The artworks are of Tiger murals and their canvas goes beyond each of the walls these murals are adorning. Their one and only canvas is in fact a wide territory, knitted of thriving Canadian communities. Together these murals have enlightened and inquisited the minds of thousands of children from 7 to 77 years old. Giant Tiger's contribution to mural art is undeniable; they have given a free and wide open access to the imaginary, paintings you can touch, paintings larger than life that can be experienced by all.

Most of the Giant Tiger murals have been created in ideal studio conditions. These murals are painted onto panels in sections and later assembled on location. This is preferable to painting directly onto the brick or concrete wall for many reasons. This technique has a minimal impact on the architectural materials and finishes. Installation on site requires only a few days and can be done rain or shine. These murals can be easily altered or relocated if need be. The protective coatings applied to the murals makes them much more resistant to weathering than conventional painted murals; they are also resistant to graffiti and allow for easy and light maintenance procedures. When producing such murals in my studio, I soon become surrounded by what looks like the pieces of an immense jigsaw puzzle. Each panel offers a new perspective of the planned mural as they will only reveal their final look once assembled together on location. Each installation worksite is an occasion for celebration and generates a great sense of accomplishment. I often plan my sites on the long weekends of the summer months, so it is a surprise for many going back to work on Monday morning to see a mural where there was only a blind wall on Friday afternoon! My studio and installation crew men are work horses. They often carry me to the finish line as they themselves are proud and excited to witness first hand the birth of a new mural painting. Thanks to Giant Tiger commissions, I have had the pleasure to discover more of the communities and the people of Ontario and Québec. We do live in a beautiful country.
