Mural making on my mind… #jumpforjoy #Vancouver #mural #publicart

Photos and mural by Eyoälha Baker www.jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

Photos and mural by Eyoälha Baker http://www.jumpforjoyphotoproject.com

This is a little section of the first Jumping mural I made last summer, the new Jump for Joy Photo mural I will create this year will be very similar only on a much larger wall and in a more exposed location – The corner of Abbot and West Pender Street (DTES) Vancouver BC Canada.

I have a lot to do before even beginning the mural, most importantly – raising the funds to make it happen and taking at least 100-200 more jump for joy photos over the next few months – thats a lot of jumping photos!

I have put together a Kickstarter campaign and as soon as Im able to get an intro video produced, I will publish it and begin fundraising. I would very much appreciate your help in spreading the word once the campaign starts.. and if you are able to donate to the project and help spread the joy – that would be even more amazing :)

I will keep you posted as things progress.

Have a wonderful day!

A new #Vancouver @JumpforJoyPhoto #Mural is in the works! Happy to announce partnership w @FreeOfViolence!!

It’s official! I’m making a new – even bigger – Vancouver jump for joy photo mural :)

Two weeks ago my Jump for Joy mural was removed. A couple of days later, I wandered around looking for potential walls to make a new mural and… I came across this wall and knew this was the one.

IMG_7025

I immediately went into the print shop in the building and asked who owned the building. I was told it belongs to BC Housing. I looked them up and found they were only a few blocks aways so went straight to their office, they said I would need to speak to Atira Women’s Housing. Atira is a community-based organization that supports all women and children who are experiencing the impact of violence committed against them.

I looked up Atira’s location and went to the leasing office in Coal Harbour.. they told me the number to call, which I did, and had the most wonderful response. 1 or 2 emails and we scheduled to meet today..

Now, I am proud to announce that I am partnering with the Atira Women’s Resource Society and making a massive mural on the corner of Abbott And Pender St. in the most amazing location situated between Downtown Vancouver, Chinatown and Gastown aka DTES :)

Let the fundraising extravaganza and jumping photo blitz begin!

I’ve already started preparations for a Kickstarter Campaign to raise the funds as I would love to get started on the mural asap .. at the same time, I will need to do at least 4 shoots a day over the next couple of months to have enough photos to for the mural.

My last mural was 9000 sq ft, this wall is the same width, but has 3 more stories so a very rough guess is that it is around 20,000 sq ft! So thats a lot of wall to cover with jumping joy and a lot of funds to raise to make it happen.

Once I have the exact square footage I will finalize the budget and begin the Kickstarter. Stay tuned and please support the project if you can :)

the work of creating… #quote #create #work

“Time is the raw material of creation. Wipe away the magic and myth of creating and all that remains is work: the work of becoming expert through study and practice, the work of finding solutions to problems and problems with those solutions, the work of trial and error, the work of thinking and perfecting, the work of creating. Creating consumes. It is all day, every day. It knows neither weekends nor vacations. It is not when we feel like it. It is habit, compulsion, obsession, vocation.” – Kevin Ashton

Q. Your experience doing jumping photos?
A:
Uplifting! I loved the vibe of the photographer ;) Although it was chilly in Gastown, the sun was shining and the sky was blue! I actually had a great weekend so doing a jumping session on Monday was the perfect way to start off my week. We should all start our week off jumping!

Possible new location for bigger Vancouver @JumpforJOYphoto mural

Less than a week since the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural came down. It was quite emotional saying goodbye… BUT every ending is a new beginning and I already have some potentially exciting news :) Yesterday I walked around the DTES looking for a big wall for a new mural and found – the perfect wall! I tracked down the owner of the property, they love the idea and we are meeting to talk about it in a couple of weeks. I’ll keep you posted!

Today was the end of the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural #jumpforjoyphoto

To my surprise the Vancouver Jump for Joy Photo Mural was removed yesterday. I discovered it by chance as I passed by in the morning. I knew it would be coming down eventually and it was starting to come apart on its own but it was still quite emotional to see it coming down. I wish I’d had a heads up that it was coming down but I’m glad I chanced upon it before it was gone. A lot of love and joy from a lot of people went into creating that mural. It was an incredible experience and I’m grateful to Amalia Liapis and Murality for the opportunity to share my art with the world. The good news is… I can make another mural! All I need a new wall and I can get started :)

the desire to do things… #psychologytoday #quote #jumpforjoyphoto

“Motivation is literally the desire to do things. It’s the difference between waking up before dawn to pound the pavement and lazing around the house all day. It’s the crucial element in setting and attaining goals—and research shows you can influence your own levels of motivation and self-control. So figure out what you want, power through the pain period, and start being who you want to be.” – Psychology Today
