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 :)

I love doing jumping pics as much as I love taking them of other people. This is one (of several attempts) I did with the camera timer. It always makes me laugh doing this… I surely look silly jumping around and laughing to myself as people happen to pass and don’t see the camera :) It’s good fun.

Get out and play today, create something new, share your joy.

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 :)
