Kseniya,

Grateful for your Kind & Generous Acknowledgment.

Thank you.

“This is to HïMY @labyrinthsdotca whom I accidentally met at Budapest Park creating his biggest ground Labyrinth in Canada (!!!).

I had noticed that and many other wading pool Labyrinths in parks around Toronto before that,

and I thought it was so cool cause every time I saw children and adults really enjoying them.

I was sure it was a City of Toronto’s project of some sort,

BUT it is not!

HïMY is doing it all on his own and hasn’t sought payment for his creations.

He spends time to carefully measure and calculate a very elaborated Labyrinth pattern,

and invests his own money in the art materials.

He worked on this one, for example, for about two years.

He puts so much thought into the way he designs his Labyrinths, and so so much passion!

Just look at HïMY’s t-shirt, and undershirt, and notebook – everything is Labyrinth 😍

And he did his research how to write it in different languages 🙂

Dear @start_streetartoronto and @stepspublicart , I think HïMY totally deserves to be on the artists roster and bring even more of his interactive and meaningful creations to animate the public spaces ❤️

P.S. did you know what is the different between a Maze and a Labyrinth?

I didn’t, and I learnt from HïMY that a Maze has dead ends, but a Labyrinth doesn’t, you will always find your way to the centre ✨”
