Names like Ola Volo, iHeart, Scott Sueme, Andrew Young, Stewart Stephenson, and national artists like Denial and Fucci are making an appearance on October 1 at the first Art Rapture show, an urban-pop exhibition promising a healthy dose of provocative, satirical, street, and awe-inspiring works of art.

Attendees will be able to purchase these works from more than 15 artists on a first come first served basis. The exhibition is divided into two parts: first crack tickets for the collectors looking to acquire a new piece of art from these renowned artists; and happy hour entrance for the ones looking to appreciate the art, socialize and enjoy a drink.

The event closes with an after party, the Get Lit! art party with live DJs and lots of dancing. Limited availability, so reserve your spot.

Here’s a recap of the artists headlining this event:


His work is bold, vibrant, colourful, and dynamic. The minimalist approach of his forms and the consistent colour palette, allow him to create pieces that result in “thought-provoking works that touch upon perversion with wit and unexpected sophistication.”

His socially conscious, thought-provoking, satirical work has been exhibited around the world and his murals are located in the streets of cities like Dubai, Toronto, Miami, Chicago, and Detroit, amongst many others. His work is a critique of society and the things we are “in denial” of.

Ola Volo

The characters in Ola’s stories live in dynamic environments. Her vibrant work can also be appreciated in public spaces on murals she has created herself or collaborations with other artists in multiple cities.

Born somewhere in western Canada, sometime in the late 80s, Vancouver artist iHeart has surprised more than one passerby with his stencil work hidden around the city. Given the nature of what he does, iHeart remains anonymous and claims he is “just a boy with ideas, opinions and a whole lot of aerosol.” iHeart’s social commentary plays with the viewers interpretation based on wether the work is seen online or in person.

Scott Sueme

His abstract and contemporary work has been presented in multiple exhibitions. Playing with solid colours and geometric shapes, Sueme looks into exploring the connection between communication, colour, pattern, and landscape.
