Vancouver Art Attack was a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon. I had the opportunity to talk with some artists who’s work i admire and see their techniques first hand. It really was an eclectic assortment of artists from all segments of the Vancouver art scene, it was interesting to see the mix.
By creating community-centered events, Vancouver Art Attack helps support local artists by donating over half the proceeds to the participating artists and to community partners such as Coast Mental Health and many other supporting sponsors. These events help create a community where artists and art lovers alike can work together to create supportive and engaging partnerships.
Our artists range from recent university graduates, teachers, members of the Federation of Canadian Artists, live competitive painters, Vancouver Mural Festival artists and members of the Coast Mental Health Art Therapy Room.
Each artist has their own unique style, skill set, experience and approach to the canvas – every process is different and this is what sets them apart. No painting style or technique is ever the same – there truly is something for everyone!
This year we built a large-scale no-commission – outdoor pop-up art gallery, exclusively for Diner en Blanc. Featured artists got a chance to paint live at the event, all art sale proceeds going directly back to the artists. It was a great way to bring local art into the community and create valuable connections between artists and art enthusiasts alike.
A live art show and fundraiser bringing artists together to celebrate art, culture, and diversity, benefiting the crew at Culture Saves Lives – A not for profit that actively fights for the preservation of First Nation traditional beliefs, culture and healing practices.
Vancouver Art Attack acknowledges, recognizes and honours the traditional unceeded territories of The Coast Salish, Musqeum & The Tsiel – Waututh First Nations People.

Dinner by Design is an event that brings together like-minded individuals and professionals passionate about design, culture and art. This year Vancouver Art Attack had the pleasure of hosting and creating our own table at the event titled “In Her Studio”, a dining experience created to feel like an artists studio – featuring the art of up and coming artist Ghazal Elhaei.
