Nearly a continent in itself, Canada is rich with diverse ecosystems. Boasting the longest coastline in the world, it touches the Atlantic, Arctic, and Pacific oceans. In the same manner #Canada is rich with vast cultural diversity. As a last frontier, Canada maintains a lasting reputation for welcoming refugees and immigrants. A plethora of nationalities decorate our map with a mosaic of foreign influence. Their colours are added to the earthy hues of pre-colonial Canada which was a myriad of cultural wealth. It’s ancient #mosaic of colours is still being explored and celebrated by discovery and rebirth.

This story isn’t about any specific individual or culture, but rather it is metaphoric of the full spectrum of cross-cultural communities and families that have arrived to call Canada home. Five different traditionally dressed subjects were randomly chosen to represent the waves of people groups arriving at our airports and experiencing the complex integration among a foreign people. The areas which each character is adding mosaic tiles is fictional and unrepresentative in terms of the demographics of those regions and the trend of immigrating populations.

The basic blueprint for the regions’ different colour schemes roughly follows the territorial areas of different tribal groups of Canada’s #Indigenous people. Some areas are intentional colour palettes referencing researched artifacts, textiles and artwork from various tribal groups roughly mapped into their regional areas. This required a tremendous amount of research which is a common part of my work. The subtle gesture behind this idea was to show respect for Canada’s first people. In the same way it was intended to demonstrate a hope towards active #decolonization and equality to all Canadians as new waves of immigration continues to add to the kaleidoscope of what it means to be Canadian.
