    You know I love that painting of Raj. I think the painting of your dad and his bro turned out really well also.

  • Nola

    Very inspiring work. Really love them all.

  • Barb

    Continue to enjoy your very distinctive style! If you moved back to Steamboat, it would be great to have you in our gallery!

    I agree with Lavurn above, the simplicity is great, very refreshing! Really nice work. I think one of the tricky things as a painter, is to concentrate on the subject/concept and not the style, and to get the fine balance between simplicity and detail, but its tackled perfectly in these :)

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”



Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.
