ST. PADDY’S

Enquire About This Work

Toronto’s original five wards where all named after Saints and one neighbourhood named St. Patrick after the inhabitants of that area being Irish. When the city put through the University subway line in 1959, they went away from naming the subway station after the street above as they typically do instead of naming the new station Dundas West, they opted to name it after the Ward in which it runs through and that is St. Patrick.  The artist states; “as an Irish Canadian this TTC station is his favourite by far”. A station the artist passed through plenty going to the Art Gallery of Ontario just as Morrígan is doing in this incredibly detailed urban landscape from Brandon Steen. ST.PADDY’S is painted on a birch panel measuring 127 cm x 127 cm or 50” x 50”
