+   ABOUT   +


Booooooom was launched in 2008 by Vancouver-based artist Jeff Hamada. It is now Canada’s highest traffic art blog, and one of the largest on the Internet. The site is an authoritative voice in the new contemporary arts scene, highlighting emerging talents, and launching the careers of many young artists internationally.

Millions of page views each month, and readers from all over the world! Incredibly, this is mainly the result of good old fashion word-of-mouth! So if you’ve told even one person about this place hold your hand up to the monitor and accept this high-five! Did you feel that? That was no regular high-five, that was the highest-five in the history of highs and fives.

“Jeff Hamada has his finger on the pulse of the creative world. In fact, these days, you could say he is the pulse.”

“Hamada has the power to positively influence the careers of unknown artists and designers. If he posts the work of an emerging illustrator or photographer, it’s entirely possible that Nike or some other premium brand will also take notice”

The National Post

– It’s Nice That


“There’s something about Jeff’s positivity in celebrating work that interests him, hoping to spark inspiration in others, that is both generous in spirit and refreshingly unpretentious.”

– Emmy Lee (Assistant Curator, Vancouver Art Gallery)

– Hootsuite
