​Urban Bouquet by Johnston. “Urban Bouquet” is a mural exploring the idea of the city as an ecosystem that expresses itself through its blossoming cultural sectors. Artist Charles Johnston was inspired by Brampton’s ‘Flower City’ designation and one of the City’s signature initiatives – the Heritage, Arts, Culture and Entertainment (HACE) Downtown Brampton Creative Economy Plan.

These elements evolved into monumental floral bouquets and vignettes that depict the City’s creative urban culture through a dynamic relationship of imagery, symbolism and colour.
