Over the course of Ottawa Winterlude's 2019 festival, I painted 15 store front windows along Ottawa Bank street.
The stores ranged from Camera shops to Coffee shops. I created a colour theme based off the theme of Fire & Ice, which was the theme of the street for this years festival. From there, I developed 15 unique storefront window designs and executed them on the large windows along bank street. Each of my window paintings are painted and dry in a matter of hours for client convenience. Here are some of the highlight.
Starbucks: 259 Bank Street, Ottawa, Ontario
This storefront window was big and wrapped around to Cooper Street. I wanted to create a design that was both engaging and simplistic. I also wanted to capture a typical windy day in the midst of February winter. For this storefront, I went with the cool blue tones from the colour pallet and created a winding pattern to draw people into the store. I got a lot of positive comments surrounding this window and its design.
Haze Bong & Gift Shop: 367 Bank St, Ottawa, Ontario
For this window, I painted flames in a sequence which resembled a snowflake. The colours also resembled both fire & ice. I painted this window from the inside. This window got a lot of positive attention, it also matched the context of the store.
Morning Owl: 139 Bank Street, Ottawa, ON
Morning Owl was another popular location to draw customers in and get them in the festival spirit. I decorated the window to be half fire half ice. I used warm and cool shaped visuals to decorate and fill up the negative space.
The Royal Oak: 188 Bank Street, Ottawa, Ontario
The Royal Oak was the largest set of windows I had to paint along bank street. It was one of my favourites because the large windows left me so much room to go big and get people into the festival spirit. For this window, my goal was to create warmth around the Royal Oak as an inviting place to go for a warm meal.
Healthy Pet’s HQ: 420 Bank St, Ottawa, ON K2P 1Y8
I painted this window from the inside of the store. I illustrated a fox skating along a wavy strip of ice and decorated the rest of the window with wind swirls and snowflakes.
