Magical Lands of "The Nutcracker and the Four Realms" Are Reflected in Mural Art in Four Canadian Cities | #DisneysNutcracker


Walt Disney Studios Canada is bringing the worlds of “The Nutcracker and The Four Realms” to the world of Instagram and we invite you to join it! Disney Studios commissioned four artists in four different cities to create the four different realms from the new movie. The vibrant Instagram walls represent the four Canadian artists’ interpretations of the quadrant of magical lands found in the film which include: The Land of Snowflakes; The Land of Sweets; The Land of Flowers; and The Fourth Realm. The walls are live from Monday, October 22 until Sunday, November 4 in Vancouver, Calgary, Montreal and Toronto.

Here is more information about the Walls:

The Nutcracker

Vancouver   Waterfront Station, 601 West Cordova St.

THE LAND OF SWEETS is delicious with its gumdrop décor framed by candy cane trees. With bright, bold saturated colours, this realm just screams yummy—even the ground is made of chocolate.

Artist: Tyler Towes
Tyler has worked as a professional mural artist since the year 2000 (and a street artist for longer). With his childhood friend, he co-founded a business called Canadian Murals in 2002 and continued as a solo artist in 2011. Since its inception Canadian Murals has completed well over 100 public works of art for cities, municipalities, and businesses that are enjoyed across Canada.

Montreal    St James Cathedral, 463 Saint-Catherine St W.

THE LAND OF SNOWFLAKES is a stunning winter wonderland with ice castles and alpine villages set against a white-peaked mountain backdrop.

Artist: Monk-E
French-Canadian born in the province of Quebec, Monk-e is a self-thought visionary urban artist, multilingual poet and globe-trotter. Rooted in the world of graffiti and contemporary urban art since 1996, he renamed his art form under the term Calligraffiti Alchimographic.

Calgary    Chinook Centre, 6455 Macleod Trail

THE LAND OF FLOWERS is both fragrant and colourful with flowers that explode to life.

Artist: Curtis Van Charles 
Curtis Van Charles is best known for his paintings of animals playfully jumping above the horizon such as his piece 'Grizzlies in the Foothills.' Through his work, Van Charles narrates an authentic adventure through the wilderness near his home in the Canadian Rockies where he finds inspiration for his large-scale mixed media artworks.

Toronto  Union Station, York Concourse
THE FOURTH REALM is a dark and ominous island suffering deep battle scars, with spooky forests carpeted with a velvety red colour inspired by traditional toadstools.

Artist: Bruno Smoky
The artist Bruno, also known as “Smoky” has dedicated his life to visual art. Since his childhood, drawing and creativity was always part of his daily routine. In 2004, he began painting on walls with spray paint in Brasilandia where he grew up, a precarious neighbourhood of Sao Paulo, Brazil. Smoky has gained international and professional recognition through his artistic journeys throughout Brazil, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela, Argentina, Canada, Paraguay, Sweden, England, the Netherlands, Germany and the USA.

To celebrate the upcoming release and the unveiling of the wall in Toronto, we joined a How to Cake It event in the afternoon, on October 22 and had a chance not only enjoy amazing painting and also meet  the cake guru, Yolanda Gampp and the creator of the wall Bruno Smoky!

Visitors are welcome to stop by The Fourth Realm mural art at Union Station in Toronto.

“The Nutcracker and The Four Realms” is in theatres November 2, 2018.
