Giraffes peek out of huge magnolia blossoms.  Located in the alley west of Main at 8th Avenue. Artist Ilya Viryachev says this  (video HERE).

“In Bloom: An Ode to Vancouver” is a 100-foot wide mural that was created in collaboration with The City of Vancouver and Mount Pleasant BIA, to both of whom I am extremely thankful for. I got to collaborate with the youth from the Mount Pleasant Community Centre, who worked with me on the concept in the beginning, as well as came out a number of times to help me paint the wall. The image was inspired by the beauty of Vancouver in spring when all of the magnolia trees are blooming, while chickadees are there to represent the youth.
