Squamish Valley Music Festival: Visual Arts Program


Congrats to my friend Drew Young (my favourite local painter, and one of my favourites from anywhere) on the successful launch of the Visual Arts Program as part of this year’s Squamish Valley Music Festival. He designed, produced, curated, directed everything and still found time to paint a giant mural along side 20+ local artists. Take a look at the video below to see some of the murals they created at the event.

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International.
