Dufferin Station

Artists: Eduardo Aquino and Karen Shanski
Client: Toronto Transit Commission

The renovation of Dufferin Subway Station involved extensive use of engineered ceramic block. This integrated artwork is an extremely economic disposition of the artwork budget, utilizing the ceramic block as a “pixellated palette” to display abstracted images of the community.

The resulting immersive artwork is highly visible to the general public by way of the street level glazed pavilion, as well as to TTC passengers at concourse and platform levels.
