Jameson Avenue Impressions

From Jameson Avenue Impressions

What gives a bicycle personality? What gives a neighbourhood its charm?

The answer is simple; it’s you and me, the people who power cities and bikes.
Within the apartment buildings lining Jameson Avenue you’ll find a diverse cross-section of the world in the people who live there.
Jameson Avenue Impressions is a series of portraits on ceramic tile presenting the people and places of Parkdale to those who may not venture into the homes and shops of this area.

“I think of Jameson as this launching pad, people come here and you have different languages and cultures. So why not try to capture those kind of people and do a passport-style idea?”
Jameson Avenue Impressions artist, Jim Bravo

Many of the neighbourhood residents use bicycles daily. Parking can be a problem as many buildings often prohibit bicycle parking along their fenced front entrances. There are almost no post and ring racks to be found here either.

  1. thank you for posting the project! Great pics, may we link and post on our own site?

  2. Thanks. I’m glad you found the post. I’m really impressed by your project.

    Yes, please feel free to link to the article from your own site.

  3. I am a newcomer to the city of toronto, and this week I stumbled onto the great Jameson community. The first thing that caught my eye was the impressions project, seems very true and proud of the community: the project made more and more sense as I walked to the great people of the area.

    I do wonder what process was used to transfer the photos onto tiles, cant quite figure it out.
