vancouver Art Attack
Founder | Artistic Director
2013 - Present:
I created this event in the Spring of 2013 - it was supposed to be a one time fundraiser for the HIVE, a local not for profit co - working space located in the Downtown Eastside. During its production I realized that this had the potential to become something bigger than myself. Since it’s inception, the event has grown into one of Vancouvers’ largest live painting events.
Each event showcases a hand picked lineup of twenty artists, who are given four hours and blank canvases to create gallery quality art, creating an impressive collection of one of a kind masterpieces, which are sold during the Fresh Off The Easel Live Auction.
Proceeds of sales go towards our Award of Excellence in Visual Arts at Emily Carr University of Art & Design.
During the event, we host artist talks with leading industry professionals, past speakers have included Ambassadors from Hootsuite, Pennylane Shen, Chris Bentzen and members of the Coast Mental Health Foundation’s art therapy studio.
Over the years Vancouver Art Attack has evolved into a movement, the brand is at the forefront of the underground contemporary art scene. I have had the pleasure of collaborating with over 100 local and international artists, together we are changing the way the value of art is perceived. Vancouver Art Attack has a proven track record of introducing first time buyers to the art of collecting art.
Today, Vancouver Art Attack operates as a consulting agency specializing in private art acquisitions, customized solo exhibitions for artists, art advisory for corporate clients and artist representation.
