Event description

Description

Join us MNSTRs for the Vancouver installment of the #graphicallyspeaking_ series on Wednesday evening April 25th starting at 7pm. This is MNSTR Gallery's 4th exhibition opening at the space sharing original artworks and is part of the CAPTURE PHOTO FESTIVAL 2018 OPEN EXHIBITIONS LINE UP. Bring your friends to enjoy all the works and meet the artists on the canvas. This is a self-funded Not for profit project. Entry + Drinks by Donations please! :) THANK YOU.

#GraphicallySpeaking_ is a photography & illustration collaborative project between Photographer, OSG & a curated group of Vancouver based visual artists of different creative styles. The project aim is to showcase both the artistic style of each individual and their portraits in one image. Each artist is limited to using a monochromatic colour, and by using their own portraits as a canvas, we will get an insight into the personalities behind the artwork. The original series started in 2014 in collaboration with 12 Singapore based Artists encouraging individual artists to express their visuals freely on their canvases; now in 2018 we have 15 talented Vancouver based Artists participating in the latest series...

The ARTISTS, their portraits + Canvas: Sandeep Johal, Lauren Bortoli, Shelly Slade, Cristian Fowlie, Dena Lazarenko, Ciele Beau, Michael Mateyko, Tierney Milne, Ana Petre, Alejandro Salarzano, Aimee Young, Brother Jopa, Arinn Westendorf, Leo Recilla and Janice Liu.

This project aims to experiment with and expand on the traditional ideas of portraiture. To bridge the gaps between different creative fields through collaboration, and to encourage social interactions between creatives.

"It’s challenging to push the boundaries of portraiture, intimacy and honesty are elements that I always strive for. By engaging artists to interactively collaborate through an analogue medium on their own portraits, I hope to expand the relationship between the viewer and the subject by giving insight into their creative psyche. Planned to be an ongoing global project with different artists and in different cities." - OSG (Photographer + Curator)

The exhibit will be up for display until May 13th, 2018 opening ONLY on Saturday + Sundays from 2-6pm.
