So soo sooo excited that the Vancouver Mural Festival is finally happening this month! Artists Mandy Tsung and Russell Alton collaborated on this beauty, one of several murals wrapping the entire MakerLabs building.
On August 20th the Vancouver Mural Festival will take over Main street between 12th and 7th. There will be 35+ new permanent murals to look at, a million bands, public markets, all that good stuff! More info here. Our city has needed something like this for so long! Stay tuned for more coverage.
French artist JR has created two new public artworks in Rio de Janeiro in celebration of the Olympic games and as part of his ongoing Inside Out Project. Using construction scaffolding, the installations involve enlarged images of athletes in-action: the first high jumping way over a building and the second diving into the ocean.
