I was invited to paint 2 pieces for the Ayden Gallery’s annual show : ‘Robots & Monsters’! Totally thrilled about this exhibition as this annual show has become a Vancouver staple for art enthusiasts over the past several years!
I decided to paint the ‘Robot’ themed painting using a feminine colour palette (featuring Baymax from Big Hero 6!) and the ‘Monster’ piece using a masculine colour painting (featuring Sully from Monsters, Inc.!). I wanted to explore relationships between animation and abstract painting, along with unique colour combinations to inspire a reaction. I know I felt quite differently painting the two pieces. It was so much fun to step back and watch guests on Opening night approach these paintings, faces lit up, trying to discern what was going on in each piece.
The show is on now until November 1st — so get down to see my pieces for yourself, and the work of other incredibly dynamic local and international artists.
