Video Interview With Artist Andrea Wan On Her First Solo Show in Denmark

Here’s a lovely interview with my friend, Hong Kong-born, Berlin-based, artist Andrea Wan as she prepares for her first solo show, in Denmark. Vancouver really misses you Andrea, me especially.

I love the part where she talks about the improvised stories she used to tell into a tape recorder when she was younger. Things like that can unlock ideas that are buried deep in your subconscious.

My mom kept an old journal of mine from grade 3, and when I found it a few years ago, it was hilarious to see how many of the stories were about someone getting lost. It didn’t matter if it was a boy, a snail, a knight. No matter what happened in the beginning and middle of my stories, somewhere near the end, whoever it was, they got lost. I guess it was my biggest fear at the time.

Instagram Takeover: Linsey Levendall

linsey levendall

This week the artist in charge of our Instagram account is Linsey Levendall. He’s currently living in Saskatchewan but originally from South Africa. I didn’t realise until I read his bio that he works closely with The Black Heart Gang. If you don’t know their work, watch “The Tale of How”, I saw them speak at F5 in New York several years ago and was completely blown away.

Linsey’s work was off my radar until recently but he’s quickly become one of my favourite artists. The detail in his work is kinda insane.

Please give him a warm welcome as he posts for the next 7 days. Follow along on our Instagram and make sure you follow his too!

Veronique Meignaud

Artist illustrator Veronique Meignaud

Veronique Meignaud is my favourite illustrator living in Canada (by way of France). She has one of the most diverse portfolios I’ve seen, every page is bursting with ideas. A true master of both digital and traditional mark making. When I first featured her several years ago she was still living in France, now she lives in Montreal.

Take a look at more of her work below!
