The Art Shop

Consciously or unconsciously, creating art can be impacted by the artist’s surroundings and their personal and cultural experience. In a multicultural city like Vancouver, most people are influenced by their background; symbolism, language and tradition drawn from diverse personal histories.

Mixed Gems aims to be a celebration of mixed identity and it’s expression through art. Through their artwork, the participating artists explore their personal understanding of their mixed cultural heritage.

The Art Shop (TAS) aims to connect with the people of Vancouver with pop up exhibitions presenting local emerging artists. Hoping to create opportunities to engage with the local talent while exploring relatable and accessible themes.
