A little message for the day from @eyoalha Play!

A little message for the day –

Play. It keeps you young at heart. Let loose your ideas. Deconstruct your limits. Be open. Create your way every day. Smile at everything you can. Its all for you. This life is made for you, by you. Use it for yourself. Make it what you want. The imagination of play is your tool. Play today. – Eyoälha Baker <3

Before and After – the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural

Before and After – The Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural completed by Eyoälha Baker on August 4th 2014. It is a compilation of photographs of people jumping for joy around Vancouver and lower mainland. The mural is located at 161 East Pender Street. It is the first of its kind to adorn the wall as part of a yearly rotating mural project for Murality.org

Photographs from the Vancouver Jump for Joy Mural by Eyoälha Baker

A few detail photos from the Vancouver Jump for Joy Mural by Eyoälha Baker. The mural is in the laneway beside 161 East Pender Street. I have not been able to find a way to photograph the entire wall which is 9000 Sq Ft (112ft wide x 32ft high).

Creating this work will forever be an experience that lives joyfully in my heart. I am inspired to create another and scoping out my next Jump for Joy mural location.

I would love to create the next Jump for Joy Photo Mural in Los Angeles, California. If you know someone in Los Angeles with a massive, empty building wall that could use some joy.. please put them in touch with me :)

Have a spectacular day!

I’ve been pasting posters for the Jump for Joy Photo mural since Monday and it looks like I may be able to finish it by today!

The mural is located in the lane beside 161 East Pender Street in Vancouver BC Canada.

There are nearly 200 enlarged photos of people Jumping for Joy all around Vancouver that I have compiled over the past 2 years.

Excited to have the opportunity to present them as the first mural of the Murality.org project. Please stop by and take a look… and share it on social media hashtag #jumpforjoyphoto #mural #eyoalha #publicart #jumpforjoy #streetart :)

Today, Im running around picking up the rest of the supplies.. which includes a trip to Blaine, Washington for the Tecknabond adhesive. The adventures of mural making :)

Exhausted and happy… loving every minute of the process!

FAQ: When will Jump For Joy Photo mural be finished?

If I can recruit some crafty volunteers to help past the posters together, everything will move a lot quicker… Any expert paisters out there want to get there hands dirty? :)

FAQ: Where is the mural located?
A: In the ally beside/on 161 East Pender Street.

FAQ: How long will the Jump for Joy Photo mural be up?
A: 1 year!

I was feeling like creating some photos and had no one lined up to shoot the other day, so I started looking for somewhere to do some selfie jumping photos and came across these power lines in a clearing in North Vancouver. Sometimes the least likely places provide an interesting backdrop… so I did a series of selfie jumping photos here. Fun!

Enjoy your day today.. get out and play!
