Each year, we lose some good outdoor art in Winnipeg. For the year indicated, here's a last look at, a last goodbye to some of the artwork that has disappeared that year.

1041 Aberdeen Avenue   

   These Murals were rendered in 2003 by a team of artists led by Mike Pagtakhan that included Mari Udarbe, Peter Chan, Easter Udarbe, Roxanne Magnaye, Richard Ramraj, Ricardo Damsel. In 2021 the walls were painted over due to deterioration of the surfaces (the west wall had actually been painted over earlier in 2014).
Original notes follow:===

Youth-Inspired. Anti-Graffiti. Culturally-friendly. Those are three key phrases that describe this Point Douglas Masterpiece. In the fight to prevent graffiti crime, City Councillor Mike Pagtakhan teamed up with a group of youth Muralists, (Mari Udarbe, Peter Chan, Easter Udarbe, Roxanne Magnaye, Richard Ramraj, Ricardo Damsel) to better the environment in the quiet neighbourhood of Aberdeen. Through rain, cold wind, hot sunshine and even language barriers, the team succesfully completed two unique Murals. The first Mural pertains to the image of a Korean sunset; carefully directed by Peter Chan, this was meant to cater to the owner's taste and cultural background. It was a reminder of their homeland, their heritage, their identity as they embark on a new life in a multi-cultural Canada. The second mural is similar to a caricature in which all the Muralists' individual talent and flavour is put into account in the end, creating a colourful and vibrant picture desperately needed to lift up the spirit of the residents, the owner, the youth, and most of all, the spirit of Point Douglas.

Our thanks go out to Councillor Mike Pagtakhan and his Intern Mari Udarbe for providing the notes above.
