FREEBIRD HEALTH CLUB
Definitely my largest project to date that has spanned over multiple years - Freebird is Sardar Ji (Sikh) themed fitness club started by personal training duo and brothers Coolwinder and Gursewak.
A first met Coolwinder when he was opening his first gym - small personal training gym during the pandemic.
Their business grew rapidly due to their commitment, dedication and high energy (as well as delivering stellar results to their clients), and late into 2022 I was called to start a massive Gym with some of my largest murals to date.
Construction has many delays and the second gym was being built for approximately a year. During that time I ended up painting another personal training gym for Coolwinder and Gursewak, as they needed more space for more clients and more trainers.
Fast forward another year and I returned to the newly opened, largest gym in Mississauga to create more high-energy murals.
It might be a while before I tackle another project for these two, but rest assured I'm looking forward to it.

The first mural of the owners flexing
The second takes on more of a Khalsa theme
2023 The third location (a bigger personal training facility)

Above the dumbbells rests a rather
large mural inspired by the

2022 - 2024 Mississauga's largest Fitness Facility
The Main Attraction...Coolwinder never requires designs, he insists I do it Dil Se - I envisioned a Bollywood-style action movie poster albeit with Sikh figures
The Traditional Khalsa weapons installed above
The original Khalsa Flag
Over 50 ft of warriors - my largest yet (notice I said yet)...
Singh = Male warrior
Kaur = Female warrior
Ads found in comic books and movie posters
were the design inspiration for this.
Legendary Warrior Baba Deep Singh Ji
Despite their expression I made it out unscathed.
Due take note of the Khalsa emblem affixed to the
Turban fabric used on this piece. Just one more way
to make these portraits magic.
