In 2013, the artist Danielle Worrall became a regular at then-just-opened Rhum Corner, Jen Agg’s Dundas West Haitian bar. Over many plates of rice and beans, she struck up a friendship with fellow artist Roland Jean, Agg’s husband, who invited Worrall to collaborate on a mural for the Montreal restaurant Agrikol. Agg later asked Worrall to create the painted palm fronds at both Cocktail Bar and Grey Gardens. Their collaboration continues, most recently with Worrall providing the retro-chic sign and detailing for Agg’s latest venture, Le Swan. In addition to tropical-tinged murals, Worrall also makes textiles—her macramé designs were displayed on the Drake Hotel’s rooftop patio last year.
