Jasper Wong

Illustrations by Jasper Wong. I hung out with him in Hawaii last month, and the guy is as humble as they come.

    This really reminds me of the work of a classmate of mine, however, I am really enjoying the color palette that seems constant in his work. Also, glad to hear about his being humble, just that character fact works so well to contrast the boisterous style of the works.

  • He’s really an exceptional dude, but just really really really smelly. Like fermented tofu smelly.

    • haha how you gonna stand living together?

  • That is awesome ! Makes me think a little of Japanese artist Postics http://www.postics.com/ and also http://www.suprbo.com/2009/08/pop-reportage-from-paris-plage/

  • Vim

    wow absolutly amazing, looks like alot of effort has gone into these illustrations, I’d think mr t would get angry if he seen the last image lol, a rainbow pouring out of his hood and ghosts popping out of his nipples. Reminds me of katamari damacy. Mental ideas, Jasper Wong have you ever thought of using these as t shirt designs?

  • Kyle

    Anyone that combines Mr.T and Rainbows is ok in my books.

  • Hot damn! Absolutely LOVE the work! Just posted a link on my site… -B

  • Flo

    So this is the dude that did all those crazy ass pieces for Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco! The posters are the one thing I look forward to on my way to work. Induct me into Jasper’s church of cool! Love it!

  • Chelsee

    almost looks like some parts of the works are in 3D.. wish I had a pair of 3D glasses to test that theory

  • Jill

    Jasper, MARRY ME!

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
