Herschel Supply x Vancouver Mural Fest Instagram story feature.

Written by . Filed under Press, Murals. Tagged , , , , , , , , , . Comments Off on Herschel Supply x Vancouver Mural Fest Instagram story feature..

I am extremely grateful for all the shine I’ve been getting with all the projects I’ve been working on through my studio. Last week Herschel Supply put out a feature for Annie Chen and I through their Instagram stories.

It was a feature talking about our recent collaboration for our studio mural in the Westend (Nelson and Nicola) for this year’s Vancouver Mural Festival.

Our mural titled ‘Westend Bestend’ features everything that defines the Westend. In particular, my mural features Joe Fortes (A prominent figure in the early history of Vancouver, and the city’s first official lifeguard.) heading west towards English Bay and a great blue Heron taking flight while Annie’s mural is made up of beautiful patterns and cute tiny critters. Both murals converge at the tip of Nelson and Nicola with a two-faced raccoon which you’ll need to see in person for the full effect.

Big thanks to the Herschel Supply team for coming out to document our work and for the interview. Visit @herschelsupply on Instagram stories to go through our entire interview.

Snoop Dogg x 19 Crimes Canadian launch. The BTS video shot and directed by Hubert Kang.

Celebrating redemption with 19 Crimes Cali Red with a larger-than-life Snoop Dogg art installation.

We were hand picked by Ashley McKenzie Barnes, an accomplished art curator from Toronto in conjunction with CRAFT, the PR agency to do the Canadian launch in Vancouver for Snoop Dogg’s Cali Red wine by 19 Crimes.

We presented 5 concepts to the client and this ‘Larger Than Life’ art sculpture was selected for the launch. Within less than a few days after presenting our concept we assembled a world class team to bring our creative vision to life.

The initial 3D rendering was done by hand with pencil and paper due to our limited access to Snoop Dogg himself. The artwork on Snoop Dogg’s Larger-than-life sculpture was done freestyle and illustrated freehand on location by Carson Ting using a brush and Montana street inks for longevity and durability.

Vancouver Mural Festival 2020, The Westend in collaboration with Lemonni.

Written by . Filed under Blogging, Murals. Tagged , , , , , , . Comments Off on Vancouver Mural Festival 2020, The Westend in collaboration with Lemonni..

Really stoked to be part of the Vancouver Mural Festival again this year. This time I am collaborating with my studio mate, Annie Chen. She’s the crazy talented designer behind Lemonni Design.

This is Annie’s first year with the festival and believe it or not, this mural we’re working on is only her second mural! What a natural talent.

These photos were taken a few days ago by the award-winning photographer, Hubert Kang (Annie’s husband). He also runs Kindred & Scout, a production company that’s less than one years old but has already worked on products for Nintendo, Vancouver Whitecaps, Destination B.C., Fairmont Hotels, The National Film Board of Canada and much more.

Follow us on Instagram for more up to date stories and posts.

Really excited to be sharing this project @firstphotohere as it’s been in the works for 8-9 months with our studio collective (Hubert KangLeah GreggAnnie Chen and Aiken Lao) Our latest collab with the NFB is an Instagram based project that focusses on new arrivals to Canada and the first photos they share with family and friends back home. Linking people across time and place, this project represents a wide array of new experiences and first impressions.

This is one of many illustrations we created for the project. This particular piece for Neha. This illustration is based on their first photo they took when they arrived in Canada Patna, India. Head over to @FirstPhotoHere for the full story and other amazing stories.

Curated by Joella CabaluFirst Photo Here is for anyone who has moved somewhere new and knows the thrill and trepidation that goes along with it. By turning personal stories into collective ones, we’re all invited to share in the richness of these moments and the connections they forge.

If you’d like to submit your photo and story, email firstphotohere@nfb.ca with the photo and a caption that includes your home country and the story (e.g. where it was taken, who you shared it with, what you were feeling at the time, how you feel about it now, etc.).
