Wanderings Through Gatineau

Picking up where I left off yesterday, I was interested in the contrast between new and older architecture in this part of Gatineau. I imagine this area is very busy on a Saturday night, given the concentration of restaurants.


I carried on with my stroll.


There was no information on who did this, but it feels more like street art. Given its stylistic similarity to the work below, and its proximity, it might well be the same artist.


This, however, did have a panel with information. Pop60 is by Marin Mitrasinovic and dates to 2018.


For today I leave off with this very odd crosswalk.
