One of Vancouver’s best street artists, iHeart, is having a party this Thursday to commemorate the five-year anniversary of one of the most iconic pieces of street art in Vancouver.
“Nobody Likes Me” is a wheat-paste stencilled mural that was originally displayed in Stanley Park near an underpass in Second Beach in 2014.

It paints a sad reality of today’s social media “liked/favourited/retweeted” driven society — and depicts a young boy crying over having zero likes or comments on his Instagram.
It was given a massive boost by street artist Banksy when the anonymous artist posted a pic of it to his Facebook page.
The party for iHeart’s art is happening in Yaletown, and will honour the piece. It also marks the official release of its print — with all pieces hand painted on top of the silkscreen print, with unique variations by iHeart, hand worked and pressed by master printer, Ben Duncan.
Details on the event and prices for the prints can be found here.
The prints will be available for purchase online starting at 10 am on Friday, May 10.
When: Thursday, May 9
Time: 6:30 to 9:30 pm
Where: 1063 Hamilton Street
