August 9, 2008. Ayden Gallery – Chinatown – Vancouver. BRAVE Art is a touring art show exhibiting a diverse collection of contemporary artist who are inspired by their environments.
BRAVE Art was launched in April 2005 in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada, a beautiful mountain resort with a global reputation for progressive ideas and good times. The idea was to bring a fresh mix of art fused around street and board sports culture to a “pop up” space during The Whistler Ski and Snowboard Festival. The first show featured a diverse range of talent anchored by well-established street art and skate icons. This exhibit was the first of its kind in Canada exposing a new audience to a fresh style of art that mixed diverse elements of modern popular culture.
BRAVE Art 2005 brought in classic skateboard memorabilia beside graffiti/street art legends and renowned local talent. The show opened with live painting and an artist reception. Cocktails flowed while art and people mixed. The combination of art and music in an almost party like atmosphere was an instant success. BRAVE Art was born and the word spread.
