like a moth drawn to an open flame, my first blog.
with the 2010 olympics getting closer in Van, i have enlisted the help of several other artists to assist me on a massive project that will encompass SEVERAL city blocks and provide a stark critique of the city's handling of the homelessness and addiction crisis that is plaguing Vancouver's downtown eastside neighborhood. as with all olympic shames, people are being displaced, but not helped. I hope to bring this project to fruition on the streets in about a year's time, as the olympic build-up hits full throttle. i will be working periodically on this project as well as keeping up my frantic pace of annotating and providing quality gonzo jermalism.
a few spots i decorated this week include...
the peak of grouse mountain in North Van
Patullo Bridge between New West & Surrey
(which is slated to be removed and replaced with a toll bridge privately owned by translink company)
heineken billboard @ Science World in Van
behind Monte Clark Gallery @ Granville & 8thish in Van
