Artwork by Tyler Keeton Robbins
The Vancouver Mural Festival started this week which means, for the second consecutive year, thousands of square feet of wall space in our city will be covered in murals by local and international artists! You may have already spotted the beginnings of new murals all around Mount Pleasant and Strathcona.
If you’re in Vancouver tonight make sure you drop in for the special VMF edition of SNAG (live painting / art raffle) featuring a ton of talented artists (the most artists they’ve ever hosted for a SNAG). Admission for the event is free!
Thursday night is the giant Vancouver Mural Festival group exhibition at BAF curated by artist Drew Young. The artwork above, by artist Tyler Keeton Robbins, is just one of the many great pieces in what is essentially a nice appetizer for the street party Saturday, when we get to walk around and absorb the 50+ large scale murals!
