A Gore-y Art Space!
In case you haven’t heard, this summer I downsized and moved into a new artist space! I am now in Gore Studio (617 Gore Ave in Chinatown, Vancouver). It’s the studio’s second year in the Eastside Culture Crawl and it’s coming up super fast (less than 2 weeks), happening Nov 15-18. Gore Studio is one of the most interesting and textural spaces I’ve ever had a studio in, having been a restaurant in the past, showing the original brick walls, beams and exposed pipes. Look for the large Kim Heng Noodles sign and our front door is just below with the circle windows. Hope to see you there.
Super happy about this lady right here! My most recent mural, “Emergence”(with a hidden phrase “your own way”), was designed, painted and sealed in less than 5 days, just in time for The Beaumont Studios‘ annual Halloween party! She is about 20x8ft and is one of the goddesses of creation, emerging or floating in water. Water usually symbolizes purity and fertility and is often seen as the source of creation and life itself. We partnered with The Quarry for this project and is my very first floor piece (not including the one I did in high school on the gym floor). Thanks to all my helpers, The Quarry, the guys from Ascent and Agrima and to The Beaumont for such a positive and co-creative experience. Hope you can pop in to see this piece, as this picture doesn’t really do it justice.
Here are a couple of my little ink and water-colour moth pieces that will be available at The Crawl. I will have a handful of them for you to choose from. As well, I’ll have some new skateboard pieces available, one of them, called “Blinded” is already showing at The Cultch for the pre-Crawl art show, “Spaces, Places and Traces“.
Lastly, I wanted to share with you a little video from the summer. It’s the making-of video of our group mural “Sweet Harmony”, with the collective 13 Feet Off The Ground located at 14th and Marine in West Vancouver. Music by local artist, Chersea. Enjoy!
