Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant neighbourhood has a new look following last week’s second annual Vancouver Mural Festival, with more than 40 new murals painted onto the walls of the city.

The festival took place from Monday, August 7 to Saturday, August 12, and had local and visiting artists bringing new life and colour to huge, blank canvases. The festival featured live music, a flash tattoo pop-up, a street party, and panels featuring many of the painters.

Here are a few of the new murals that went up around the city, though more can be discovered by visiting all the locations on this map.

Sarah Delaney–”Findings On Main”

If you are crusing up Main Street and you see a pink glow in the distance… keep your eyes on the road, because safety first ✌🏻

David Ullock and Douglas Nhung–”Luxurious Dreamscape Bubblebath”

Finally finished up this collab mural with the master @persondoingstuff for @vanmuralfest. This was both of our first mural, and the whole thing is freehand – no projectors used. I am ecstatic with how it turned out. What a joy it was to see everyone’s smiles and reactions yesterday during the festival. Now all I want to do is paint more murals… holler at me if you have a wall that needs painting. #art #painting #mural #muralart #vanmuralfest #vancouvermuralfestival #colour #color #wallart #outdoorart #freehand #figurativeart #abstractart #yvrart #vancityart #vancouver #vancouverart #canadianart #contemporaryart #collaboration #shape #form #composition #movement #arttakesover #muralartist #davidullock #dougnhung

I joined the #VancouverMuralFest this year! This is shot of my piece in the alley off Main Street between 5th and 6th street. The mural depicts two Thunderbirds wrestling around the sun with a conversation in Sḵwx̱wú7mesh and hən̓q̓əm̓inəm̓– the two Indigenous languages of Vancouver. The sentences say the same thing: “Is this our land?”. I made this piece this as a conversation to represent many things. I’m very proud of how it came out and grateful for all the help I got to make it happen!
