Meet The Brickman

The Brickman stands tall (really tall) on the Jarvis St. side of the Vu condominium complex in downtown Toronto.

Some people said it was “hideous,” “awful,” “ridiculous”, “a joke” and a young woman heading into the condominium was even overhead saying: “Isn’t that the ugliest thing you’ve ever seen?”

Well, I think it is a tad plain but I don’t think it is ugly.  But I burst out laughing when I found out that the name of this tall sculpture was The Brickman.   I imagined it went like this …

Well, it looks like it’s made of brick and seems to be a man… so let’s call it The Brickman… and everyone said “Cool.”   And they all lived happily ever after.

Gotham City got Batman.  The city of Toronto got The Brickman. Who says life is fair?
