Portrait of M
Downtown Mississauga Banner Art by Dan Bergeron
June – November 2018

Portrait of M is a public art project that highlights the cultural and demographic diversity of Mississauga and seeks to communicate the stories of its residents. Over 110 portraits were shot by Dan Bergeron, a selection of which are printed and displayed on the city's downtown banners.

Artists Statement:
"For this series of portraits, I want to convey the idea that people are complex and that there is no one way we should look at each other or ourselves. We have feelings that conflict, thoughts that contradict and multiple visual identities (on-line, IRL and in our own heads) that we present. Working with the shape and layout of the banners, the portraits of the subjects attempt to reveal this complexity. As we are all complex, we are the same. As we are all different, we are the same."
