For seven decades the Lido Café has been an icon in the Kensington community serving up a staple of Western and Chinese cuisine. This month marks the end of an era, as the Lido Café will be closing its’ doors.

“My art practice revolves around my relationship to spaces, buildings and neighborhoods. The Lido Café is part of what I know and like about Kensington. The Lido has personality. There is a sincerity to the diner as it is not overly staged or designed. I empathize with the space for that reason and I hope that is conveyed through my work. Producing a series of paintings of the Lido before it closes is a way of paying tribute to its existence and to the Fung family.” Melanie Aikenhead
