My images are presented as series of similar images, each slightly different than the others: the way the mind copies the world into memory, and then we further replicate that memory imperfectly through imitation.  Through the use of screen printing I create visual repetition, and through the use of loose brushwork I generate differentiation. The subjects I represent in my images are usually local and familiar. They are people, places or objects with which I have developed a relationship, and have a sense of responsibility to record them, as they are being lost to time and are being forgotten.

My subjects often include childhood themes of nature, combined with art history and theory, mythology, as well as verbal and visual puns. I work in a wide variety of materials. My brush drawings map the exploration of my whimsy and record the time in which they are made. My carvings are often thoughtful and all of my work is united in theme, by discipline, wit, and practice.



Brent Clowater is a Vancouver-based graphic artist, painter and illustrator. He studied Fine Art and Creative Graphics in his home province at the New Brunswick College of Design, graduating with an honors diploma in 2003.
Brent’s visuals are a unique melding of traditional hand-made art and digital imagery. His subject matter is boundless and ranges from vivid, contemporary portraiture to abstracts and traditional yet edgy landscape painting. Atmosphere, expression and emotion are constantly present in his art.
His 2-D abilities are extremely wide-ranging, as he works in oils, acrylics, watercolours, murals, printmaking/silkscreening, book illustration, and digital imagery using software such as the Adobe Creative Suite. 



Originally from Toronto, Ont- Nick has bounced around Canada from small town Uxbridge, coastal Halifax, and currently resides in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. Nick is the founder of Guts & Glory collective, which he started after graduating design school, where he also studied  illustration. With roots in graffiti, Nick draws his inspiration from his strong passion for comic books and classic cartoons which all blend into his work to create an illustrious style of illustration.

Nick has a very strong passion to create anything from art, to clothing, to producing music and editing video. He strives to project his creative outlook through the company Guts & Glory.



Aaron De La Cruz's work, though minimal and direct at first, tends to overcome barriers of separation and freely
steps in and out of the realms of design, graffiti, and illustration.

The parameters he has chosen to work within actually allow him to free himself and react to the very limitations he has created. This overriding structure and the lack of deliberation while moving within creates a tension when encountering his work due to the almost computer generated grid like systems he creates by unplanned markmaking. The act and the marks themselves are very primal in nature but tend to take on distinct and sometimes higher meanings in the broad range of mediums and contexts they appear in and on.

His work finds strengths in the reduction of his interests in life to minimal information. De La Cruz gains from the idea of exclusion, just because you don't literally see it doesn't mean that its not there.



I'm a graphic designer - illustrator - artist - copy writer - coffee maker - occasional pirate - semi-professional poutine critic - bicycle lover - type nerd - takoyaki master - all around nice gal. I design at the amazing oh-so-holy St Bernadine Mission Communications and do some freelance work as well.

I have worked on a range of clients big and small. One thing always remains the same though, and that is a commitment to thoughtful, engaging design.
Each project presents different challenges and requires unique solutions. I believe that idea driven design done beautifully and effectively can go a long way towards a client's success.



Eli Horn’s artistic practice is founded in painting and heavily influenced by the procedural aspects of design. His work spans scale and medium to explore the role of visual language within our dynamic reality of relationships. Eli lives in Vancouver, working independently and collaboratively as an artist, and as a founding partner of a local creative studio.



I work in collage and print making, mainly screen printing. Each piece in these series are made of a single photo reproduced many times. I use only these reproductions of the original to make new images.

I am self taught. However I could not have gotten this far without the help and support of my friends, family and the city and people of Vancouver.

I have been fortunate enough to have shown work in and on misanthropy gallery, Blim and the Vancouver Art Gallery.



I work in all mediums but mainly screen-printing. Typography and photography have always been a huge inspiration and outlet for me, taking photos and using them for reference 99% of the time. 

I break down my subjects into carefully thought-out color palettes and try to put down minimalist marks in order to create a finished look with well-considred proportions.
 I learnt the trade of screen-printing as an apparel printer in Victoria, BC at Incite. Now equipped with knowledge in the trade, I've relocated to Vancouver where I run a small print shop in ACME studios.

I aim to keep collaborating and working with other artists from all over and making new artwork. I think the more mediums, styles, and techniques an artist knows strengthens their ability and out put.



My work has always had a focus on typography and book arts.
I have always been fascinated by how the role of typography has evolved over time to not only communicate a message/product but also to match the experience that accompanies it. If typography can express a raw emotion can it also be viewed only as a form?  
If "A picture is worth a thousand words", then can a word be worth a thousand pictures, despite which typeface it is presented in?
 I utilize text in all of my work to explore these possibilities.

Alison Lilly resides in Vancouver B.C. and is currently working on illustrative design and mixed media projects, focusing on painting, screen print and digital collage.
Through her work, Alison addresses her own interest in traditional male and female archetypes portrayed within pop culture and media imagery of the past and present. Alison’s work raises questions regarding how these portrayals and perceptions of this imagery can influence ourselves and our culture.



Adam Lupton holds his Bachelors of Communication Design from Emily Carr University or Art and Design, having graduated in May 2010.
As a Vancouverite, Lupton draws his interest from that which he has known his entire life: the vast austerity of the matrix through the city.
Lupton's broad and wide-ranging interests provides the root of his visually artistic ideation. Having a keen interest in sociology and psychology, he combines his passion for popular culture, typography, philosophy, science/religion, and society to form the basis of his descriptive works. Lupton's gaze revolves around contemporary culture and the nuances that 'modern' life brings.
Lupton's design work balances on the idea of effective communication and purposeful aesthetics, and that from the ground up everything should be started with a solid concept. Lupton's processes lean heavily towards idea generation and conceptualization: things start out through the hand, ideas converge and diverge, and the outcome is more than what it is – it creates an experience for the user, a connection. His diverse background gives him the ability to straddle and draw upon the two slightly neurotic worlds of visual art and design.



My name is Colin Moore and I am Vancouver based visual artist and illustrator with an over active imagination.
I work in a variety of mediums and always take inspiration from my artistic development as a young boy. Back then you didn't have to colour in the lines!



To date Nolan’s work is the sum of a wide variety of offshore experiences.

As both an illustrator and multidisciplinary artist Neal has exhibited and sold work all over N.America. Presently unrepresented, his practise focuses on granted installations and printmaking.

 Winnipeg MB, Canada born, Neal grew up amidst the post prohibition aesthetic remnants of a city struggling for safety amongst a thickly lit cultural background.  
As a hub throughout the fur trade and later as major locomotive freight junction between Eastern/Western Canada and the United States; Winnipeg offered a culture ripe with heritage and influence.
A timely interest in typography, sign painting and font design coupled with a distaste for mass marketing led to his long term involvement within the mid 90’s re-emergence of graffiti culture. Unexpectedly marketable, the commercialization of the culture attributed to his departure, its association with freight trains ultimately steered his inclinations to the ethics of tramp travel. Riding between cities as an affordable and transient means of transportation abundant hard won experiences with a wide variety of environments, people and social templates.
The expanse of these experiences later committed themselves to a series of lectures delivered through the UBC and Langara departments of cultural study as well as an advisory position with Vancouver City Hall, the Co-founding of the now defunct Misanthropy gallery (2003-2005), a limited edition street wear line (Pacificthorn), the founding of Watermark Creative and most recently, the Design24 project with Andrew Young.

I draw more than I sleep. I kern more than I sleep. I ‘save document as flattened tif’ more than I sleep. Come to think of it, I probably don’t get enough sleep. My lack of rest has a payoff, though – I get to draw, fold and print my notions and hunches into meaningful messages, all day and all night. I like to start a project by drawing thumbnails in little ruled boxes, writing ordered lists, and circling research details. Then I take my red pencil crayon readjust, remake, and redraft until I see something exciting take shape. I like to imagine that I can drag that bright red line out of my sketchbook, and weave it into my design work and my life.



My work is created around the theme of deconstruction and re-assemblage. The image is deconstructed with dripping paint, stenciled dots, continuous ink lines and various other spontaneous creative decisions. This process is quick, intense and without inhibition. I then reassemble the subject with new lines and paint, selectively reworking certain areas to create a finished image that integrates spontaneous expression, abstraction and focused detail.


Scott Sueme is an abstract painter with roots in graffiti. His paintings are an exploration of spontaneity and intuition; a departure from his critically structured and designed letter based graffiti pieces. His process juxtaposes improvisation and strategy, layering dense shapes and bold colors over subtle tones and surfaces. The resulting narratives range from highly kinetic compositions to uniform geometrics.
Sueme currently works out of his studio in the Downtown Eastside in Vancouver. He continues to travel and showcase his work on an international level both outdoors and in galleries. He maintains to be a relevant figure in the graffiti culture, aspiring to openly converse on the art form and further its development through the discussion of technique and processes.


Canadian-born artist Ben Tour (b. 1977) channels a dark, often haunting sense of humanism in his work. His observations deftly inform his paintings, enabling him to capture the essence of a character, then distort that view any way he desires. Frenetic lines, swaths of color, and intimate angles all convey a sense that Tour may not only be drawing inspiration from the lives of strangers he observes, but manifesting his own personal experiences as well. The emotional content in each portrait is palpable as this perceived notion of creation and catharsis is paired well with the immediate voyeuristic allure of his characters. Tour has exhibited in galleries from Los Angeles to Miami, Hamburg to New York. His work has been featured in publications including BLK/MRKT One and Two, Juxtapoz, and Playboy. He has worked with clients such as BMW, Absolut, Nike and Burton Snowboards.



Sascha Yamashita was born and raised in BC. He spent a number of childhood years also growing up in Japan. Currently Yamashita lives and works in Vancouver and has been an active member of the Vancouver arts community for over 16 years. He is an ECU alumni '00, founded, directed and owned Gallery Atsui and now currently Gallery FUKAI.


For over a decade Ensoe has shown himself as a progressive and innovative graffiti writer, seeking to push boundaries and limits within the art, as well as pulling influences from other forms such as geometric and abstract art. He creates relevant and refreshing subject matter, leaving the viewer with something more to consider than the average tag.

Through traveling, networking, and painting worldwide he has established himself as a prevalent force among Canada's top graffiti artists. Today he works from his studio space in Vancouver's downtown east side, focusing on further legitimizing graffiti as a credible art form, and acting as a catalyst as the art transcends into the realm of abstraction.
