Toronto skyline painting

A bunch of random people on the TTC paint the skyline

No one likes to be particularly friendly on the subway. In fact, most of us go out of our way to avoid eye contact with strangers while taking the TTC. But in this new YouTube video, Torontonians are not just engaging with one another, but they're actually working together to paint a picture of the Toronto skyline.

Arash Randjbar started this project to encourage people of all ages to be creative.

"My whole life, I've been surround by family, friends, and coworkers who have immeasurable potential. Sadly this creative and artistic potential remains untapped because of excessive fear, doubt, and limiting beliefs," he tells us via email.

"Creativity requires courage and unfortunately too many of us feel like we are not good enough to explore the gifts we have been given. I wanted this video to remind people that it's never too late to embrace their talents."

Check out the feel-good video below. Perhaps the subway isn't as cold and unfeeling as we make it out be.
