The Hydrobox Mural

Co-created by local youths
Corner of The Esplanade & Berkeley St., TORONTO
July 2023

A group of fifteen youth from The Esplanade came together, under the artistic leadership of Kseniya Tsoy to create a marvelous mural on the Hydrobox, at the corner of The Esplanade and Berkeley St. 

The Hydrobox had been vandalized years ago and was, simply put, an eye sore for the community. The youg women transformed the box into a whimsical underwater world where everyone is welcome. 

Unveiled in Juy 2023.
