The Cities Largest Live Painting Event. Created for Artists by Artists.

Vancouver Art Attack was created in the spring of 2013. It is the city’s largest live-art event, created for artists, by artists. This annual event showcases a hand-picked line up of twenty artists, who are given four hours and blank canvases to create gallery quality art.

Since it’s inception, Vancouver Art Attack has evolved into a movement, we have showcased over 70 local artists, creating an impressive collection of one of a kind, original masterpieces, which are sold during our Fresh Off The Easel live auctions.
