Leading ad agency CRE8IVE is bringing internationally renowned graffiti artist Vans the Omega to the capital as part of a celebration of art and culture at this Saturday’s eagerly anticipated meeting of TEDxCanberra. Working within the event theme of An Optimistic Challenge, Vans the Omega will showcase his unique talent in the often polarizing world of graffiti art, live, in a stripped-back performance that will see the artist create new artwork in less than a day, with over 600 event attendees watching on. As Art Installation Partner at this year’s sold out TEDxCanberra, CRE8IVE is excited to support and showcase an artist with a gift for letterform, colour and impossible patterns. Vans has been painting for over two decades travelling the world and consistently pushing the boundaries of his specialism.
Each canvas that Vans creates will be sold through an auction, with proceeds going to a charity of the buyer’s choice, and buyers and onlookers need not attend the event to view or buy.
Attendees will be able to view Vans’ creations at the Canberra Museum and Gallery courtyard from 10am. Regular updates from the auction will be made online at cre8ive.com.au/tedxcanberra and by following @_CRE8IVE on Twitter.
