Note: This website uses the address of the building on which it appears as its physical location identifier. The site of the original Mural wall in 2013 is the east wall of 85 Princess. It is important to acknowledge that Mural expansion in 2014 involved the south wall of 87 Princess, the Atalier Building, aka Hemisphere Building, which is pending designation as a Historical site.

Kenneth Lavallee: "The Murals you see in the deer+almond parking lot are a result of a collaboration of myself, and Chef/good friend Mandel Hitzer. Since 2013, we have partnered up and celebrated Nuit Blanche with a block party consisting of live Mural painting and live bands on the roof of the restaurant, among other fun things. For the inaugural Nuit Blance in 2013 I had asked to paint deer+almond's east parking lot wall, as it was nothing more than a bland cinderblock wall. Mandel was enthused and I (with volunteer help) painted what I refer to as the Solar System Mural. The event was a success and we followed it in 2014 with a collaboration of 4 artists (myself, Takashi Iwasaki, Dany Reede and Natalie Baird) which you see on the bottom level of the south facing Hemisphere Building wall. This past Nuit Blanche I opted to design and paint the Mural myself, in a style more fitting with the original Mural, and I continued painting one level higher, the wavy colour bands that now adorn the building. Maybe next year we will keep working our way up? Who knows! It's been a blast every year and I wouldn't want to stop."
