Futura (2021) is a vibrant and innovative mural activation by Andre Kan @andrekan_ and serves as a significant landmark at The Assembly Park Studios in the City of Vaughan. His geometric shapes build upon one another creating a sense of interconnection, reminding us how we are all connected in this world. Through the significance of cause and effect, this energetic, multilayered landscape is his abstract interpretation of the city’s unique future. Like a community fueled by cultural diversity, Futura reminds us of the bigger picture, and that “we’re all stronger together for a brighter future”. This project was made possible through the collaboration with QuadReal and The Assembly Park Studios.
