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 :)

Enjoy your day!

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!

Your Journey is yours…

“Your Journey is yours. It is your calling. It is your Teacher. It is your Strength. Let no one judge you. No one can understand what you are going through unless they walk in your shoes. Believe in yourself – and cherish the true people who uplift, encourage and motivate you. Even the people who challenge us the most are our greatest teachers. They are the ones who some times shake us into stepping out of our comfort zones – and grow, find the courage to stand up for our “self”. They make us realize that we need to believe in our selves and our Self worth and find new beginnings. Have Hope … and have faith in your journey. Good things are coming your way. Just because things are Stormy now; Doesn’t mean you aren’t headed for Sunshine. Have Faith. Be Strong … And never, ever give up.” – Kiran Shaikh
