COLOUR ON THE MOVE
THE CROSSROADS BETWEEN STREET ART AND EVERYDAY LIFE
Vancouver has a contentious relationship with colour. Amid the blues and greys, street art
brings life to the cracks and corners of the city, inviting people into neglected spaces. In our
town, a lot of this work incorporates animals and the surrounding natural world. I see this as
a way of transferring what we perceive as outside wilderness into the urban environment.
These eruptions of colour bring beauty to dark neighbourhoods.
Riding around on my bike I was inspired to capture them through a series of painted landscapes.
I called it “Bicycology”. Street art is a record of artists who passed that way before, and my project
expanded to document the colourful work I saw across additional facets of our environment.
My paintings show art on the sides of cars and trucks. As well as depicting moving murals, I
wanted to explore the legacy of vehicles in the city - whether we travel by foot, bike, or truck,
street art forces the viewer to interact with the colour in their surroundings, in intentional ways
and at different speeds. Read the full article online at opusartsupplies.com/colouronthemove.
"I paint whatever I feel like,
without trying to limit myself
to one style. This may go
against what art teachers
and Instagram want artists to
do - create a brand and stick
with it - but I find I produce
more work, am more engaged
with what I'm painting."
