Mara Cortez, a local community artist, has created this beautiful, bright, and happy mural of flowers depicting Filipino heritage and our multiculturalism at Fraser & 45th Avenue

Another Amazingly Colourful Mural Comes to Fraser Street!

Sunset on Fraser News

Mara Cortez, a young and blossoming artist from our community, has brought so much life to the intersection of Fraser Street and 45th Avenue by painting this bright mural on the side wall of Pampanga’s Cuisine. She says she wanted to create a piece that would reflect the diversity of culture of this neighbourhood and she was inspired by the rich tapestry and fabric woven by the Yakan and other indigenous tribes in the Philippines. Mara twisted it and added her own style to reflect colours and shapes that she felt would resonate with other members of the community at Sunset on Fraser. The flowers represent the growth and resiliency of the Sunset on Fraser community. We hope you enjoy this third major mural of the 2022 spring/summer season!
