The Flatiron Mural in Toronto

June 18, 2012

Located in downtown Toronto, the Flatiron building built in 1891 by architect David Roberts was the first flatiron preceding the famed New York building.  In 1998, Canadian artist, Derek Besant painted a mural that mirrors the building directly across from it.  The mural consists of over 50 panels attached to a steel frame mounted on the wall and gives off the effect that the painting is fluttering in the wind being held up by screws.
