    Man these photorealist things bore me out of my skull! Could we please move on! Unless somebody does a thing like poop-by-numbers or something with atleast some sort of twist, these pieces should be boycotted as anybody and their grandma can do this. We are actually contributing to world pollution by blogging about unnecessary things like these and making the servers use power. So please let’s save nature and put this photorealism thibg away atleast for a while

      at least this artist put time and effort into the work which is clearly more then i can say for you and your comment. if you are bored maybe go do something else rather then piss on someones hard work.

      You are way off base. This is NOT photorealism – this is imagery skillfully executed to represent environments interpreted by an artist. Not only that, Booooooom intentionally features a myriad of styles by a diverse group of people from around the world. If you are unsatisfied by the curation of this blog, then find a new one.

    I like the night lights/boat lanterns. Feels very west coast, especially with the mountain night shadow.

      Thank you! Those lights are really the eyes of giant, saddled arthropods which you will see in the near future.

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.
