Instead of the usual dull construction hoarding that too many of us are exposed to on a daily basis, those passing along St. George Street will be treated to a colourful art installation surrounding the building site of the Centre for Engineering Innovation & Entrepreneurship (CEIE). At 278 feet (84.7 meters) when completed, this art installation will be the longest single graffiti installation in the city of Toronto, and is a collaboration between the CEIE and Jason Wing (also known as SKAM, who is supported by fellow street artists Aleksandrs Popelavskis and Alex Lazich).

The images capture the rich diversity and groundbreaking research that will take place within the CEIE. We spotted Tangy the Robot – how many other innovations will you see?
