See live painter Yared Nigussu at Lucky Lady IV

DH Vancouver Staff Jun 20, 2015 5:13 pm

Recently, we gave you the details on Lucky Lady’s (LLIV) various events this weekend, from networking, to the boat party, to the final day of celebration – it’s sure to be a ton of fun as you can clearly see in their latest video.


Day three is iconically referred to as “Celebrate” and that’s exactly what it will consist of – amazing local talent with over 2,000 attendees. We’ve shared the details on the musical performances that attendees will have to look forward to, but there’s more. Featured at the Festival will be one of Vancouver’s first Live Art Battles, a rising art form that sees artists getting together in front of huge crowds to battle it out on canvas. Letting the music inspire them, it will be stunning to see what creations LLIV’s live painters can come up with.


Yared Nigussu

Canada’s champion within the National Art Battle Championship for 2012, 2013 and 2014 will be performing live at LLIV. Nigussu is the recipient of the 2015 Sage Award of Social Acceptance and Excellence. He is best known for his large-scale paintings and colourful palette. His work can be found throughout the world, exhibiting in France and Austria. The masterpieces he has created are nothing less than spectacular, noticeably found through his various works found on his website.

Jace Kim

Jace Junggyu Kim is a Canadian painter currently based in Vancouver. Jace is part of Golden Brush Live Painting, and he will be competing with Nigussu on stage at LLIV. His career started off as an animator but the digital medium was not suitable enough for him to abandon his passion for traditional painting. Creating the most of the tension between the figurative and the abstract, his painting on canvas arises from the meeting and combination of various artistic materials: oil, acrylic, ink, spray paint and more. An abstract chaos capable of giving rise to an emotional overlap plays as a background to the purity and refinement of the facial expression depicted with obsessively repetitive brush strokes. He wishes to continuously grow with his distinctive style and techniques as a contemporary artist. To find his pieces, visit his artists page.

Food trucks

Apart from the musicians and painters, one more art form can be found at LLIV – the art of food. Five of Vancouver’s most popular food trucks can be found to tickle your taste buds and get rid of your “hangriest” moments that may arise. Some of the food trucks you’ll find include Kiss Yo Mama Jamaican Soul Food and Japadog, which were featured on the popular Eat St.
