The Vancouver Mural Festival launched this weekend, with walking tours and live music all around the Mount Pleasant, Main Street, and False Creek Flats area. Over 40 murals have popped up, splashing the neighbourhood with colour and providing many priceless photo ops.

The ambitious initiative hopes to transform the way art is seen in the city and already garnered serious community support over the past year culminating in a $200,000 matching grant from the City of Vancouver’s Innovation Fund as part of Mayor Gregor Robertson’s Public Art Boost.

The art exhibition saw over 35 artists installing murals throughout the festival, with international highlights including Kashink (France), Bicicleta Sem Freio (Brazil), LowBros (Germany) and NeverCrew (Switzerland). Additionally, renowned locals like Ola Volo, DEDOS, Tim Barnard, Andrew Young, and Corey Bulpitt took part. The festival’s largest single mural was painted on the front of Hootsuite’s HQ by local legend Scott Sueme.
