  • what a way to reuse ink cartridge.

  • amazing patterns.

  • I’m in love, these remind me of McQueen prints.

  • Terrific idea, amazing execution; they make me think of psychedelic quilting.

  • Niall’s solo show, Highest Prices Paid For Gold, which includes these works, runs to June 4th in Toronto at CR.

  • Very nice, reminiscent of folded shibori fabric dying.

  • DJ

    lovely!

  • Pleasantly hypnotizing.

  • WOOZUH_WOO

    Basically a take on the old art form of Japanese itajime/shibori paper and fabric dyeing except done with printer inks rather than traditional dyes I guess.

    They are still lovely for what they are, and I really like how the patterns turned out.

  • terzpa

    acid. nice.

  • Alex Kisilevich

    Artist talkin’ bout the work!

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 HERE or 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.
