Finally, Art Rapture is back to Vancouver this month

Aug 30 2017, 11:53 pm

Get ready for the most exhilarating urban art show you’ve ever seen, Vancouver.

Art Rapture is bringing local and international artists works together for this year’s PROHIBITION: nothing but trouble event on September 22 and 23.

You can attend this highly-anticipated art experience that’s set to take place in the heart of Vancouver’s Mount Pleasant art and media district. And you’ll get to see some epic jaw-dropping works that bend the boundaries of what you’d see in a traditional gallery.

The fifth-annual show adopts the theme of rapture and this means you can traverse a space where contemporary pieces scream off the walls with provocation and colour.

You’ll definitely want to attend the event for the amazing lineup of artists. Here are some of the artists whose work will be featured at this year’s festival.

Okuda San Miguel

You’re going to want to see the magic that this Detroit-based muralist creates in the city.

Another Vancouver favourite muralist that you’ll have FOMO if you don’t see.

This year’s Art Rapture event will also see new faces including artists Priscila Yu, Bracken, Justin Ogilvie, Taka Sudo, and John Shaw.

After the show, Okuda himself will be painting a mural on 325 West 4th on September 27, 28, and 29 as part of Art Rapture’s mission to introduce Vancouver to international talent. He’s also known for creating disruptive installations like the Church of Cannabis in Denver or the famous Skate Park Church in Spain.
