To launch this important event, Tiko has created a series of paintings that recognize and celebrate the West End landscape. The subject of these paintings is accelerated and unanticipated change – not change that is happening through a planning process that values the contributions of the community, but rather change that could dramatically alter the character of our neighbourhood.
Many of these paintings focus on important heritage sites that may soon be lost or substantially altered by developments currently proposed or in the pipeline. Others invite us to consider how the character of the neighbourhood may shift should unfettered development go ahead without due and thoughtful processes in place. And finally, there are also innovative developments that promise a way of transforming the West End into a more livable neighbourhood while increasing the number of residents in our midst.
