2017 OFFICIAL MURALISTS ANNOUNCED!
After going through more than 350 submissions from around the world and meeting with countless building owners we're thrilled to release our list of incredible artists for the 2017 Vancouver Mural Festival. NOTE: more artists are still TBA soon.
As you can imagine it takes an immense amount of work to widdle things down and there are so many incredible artists we just couldn't fit in this year for a variety of reasons. So a HUGE thank you to everyone that submitted, we've got your stuff on file now, but please don't hesitate to send us an up to date portfolio next year as we do our best not to recycle artists.
We're excited at the diversity of styles and backgrounds who will be bringing their vision to life this summer for our event. We believe firmly that the strength of Vancouver's arts and culture is connected directly to precisely this kind of diversity of stories.
We're also excited to have 8 international guest artists from all over the world join us here to share their talent and witness the incredible power of our very own thriving art scene.
For those wondering about where the murals will be, they will be focused in Mount Pleasant with a few major projects in Strathcona. Exact location will be announced closer to August. In the meantime come see the first murals go up on June 24th at our Strathcona Street Party, kicking off a summer of public art projects! Well be wrapping an entire building in murals once again on E Cordova and Campbell Ave.
