Wilson Heights, Part 2: Wilson Station South Exit

This is the second instalment of a 3-part post focusing on some of the murals and artwork in the Wilson Heights area of the city.

There is a newly developed area on the south side of Wilson Avenue called – strangely enough – Southside. This area has a very colourful subway station entrance and tunnel.

Wilson Heights, Part 1: Wilson Station Exit to Wilson Avenue

This is a 3-part post focusing on some of the murals and artwork in the Wilson Heights area of the city.

First up are the Wilson subway station murals. These murals are located on Wilson Avenue under the Allen Road underpass, at the south exit of the Wilson subway station. There are 40 pillars of artwork, created by street artist Shalak Attack and her collaborator Bruno Smoky. The colour of the artwork certainly gives a lift to an otherwise drab, depressing part of the city.

Crossing Wilson Avenue to shoot murals on the south side of the Allen Road underpass, I took this shot to highlight why a bit of colour is appreciated in this part of town
