A few photos from the Vancouver Jump for Joy photo mural opening event <3

An incredible day celebrating the completion of the mural and sharing joy with participants, passers by and the local community in Chinatown. So proud of my nephew Sekoya who took these photos, I handed him my camera and after a very brief explanation how to use it… he captured these incredible photos :) I cant wait to create more jumping joy photos to complete my book and make more murals!

Vancouver Jump for Joy Mural Opening today! Hooray! :)

Today we celebrate and be thankful for joy, creativity, art, uplifting each other, community, fun and.. well, all the good feeling vibes and positive energy that we feel when we are inspired to jump for joy.

Today is the Vancouver Jump for Joy Mural official opening. It is my honour to invite people to share and celebrate the experience of creating this joy-filled public art work.

The mural will be on the wall for an entire year. Today we have permission from the city to hold off car traffic. We’ve moved garbage bins, and are tidying up so we can linger, mingle, jump around and dance in the lane way.

The event is being held between 1:30-4:30 and is located in the lane beside 161 East Pender Street.

Get your jumping shoes on, stop by to do a jump photo in front of the mural! Tweet it to me: @jumpforjoyphoto #jumpforjoyphoto

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

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!

FAQ: When will the #jumpforjoyphoto mural be completed?

FAQ: When will Jump For Joy Photo mural be finished?
A: My best guess: Im shooting to complete the Jump for Joy Photo mural by mid August. I have been working non stop preparing the photos for almost a week and still have about a week+ to go before applying posters to the wall.

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!
