The Dark / Vancouver

The Dark. Vancouver Artist. I've been seeing his work for years now. He used to stecil and moved onto gluing the shit up (i have no idea what you call that). He's now moving into oils. He's got a nice mural in JD's barber as well. I hear his name is kirk or something.

I'm not able to find many pictures of his early stencil work. If other people have it, could they please post. He did this great piece on an abandoned furniture store on Pender & Homer i believe. It looked like the girl was sitting on the ledge of a window and her top half was stenciled on the glass. It was sick, one of my fav pieces to date.

You might have seen this first piece in pigeon park until someone defaced it a couple months ago.

leonardo da vinci had mona lisa

rawb, you have caps lock

you've made your mark already, I think any further artistic contributions from you would only be overshadowed by your controversial signature typing style.

word. the subject matter is pretentious for a whole wack of reasons.....

but, the stenciling is quite nice and its rad to see this kinda stuff around town regardless.





ps. why do I get -5 karma from myles for making fun of rawb. I liked it better when we knew what we were getting karma for (ie, the cute little messages we used to be able to attach to karma)

I'm listening to Paranoia- I see some haters.
highly relevant. Also does any one know the name of the guy who uses different mediums such as throwing up wheat pastes n then he sits back and captures photos at precise moments that incorporate to what the wheat paste is...one piece of work he did was a photo of a guy riding his bike and he through up a piece of a girl making it look like she was riding on the back of the bike? The Darks stuff reminds me of his work.
Good stuff..

How are the larger pieces printed? Not an attack, just a question out of curiosity.

thanks dabbler, and others who are supportive. it keeps me going to know that people are affected by what i'm fortunate enough to be able to do.

the large pieces are all drawn, not printed. if you see one look closely, you will be able to see my fingerprints.

Good point, Nicole.

I dig his stuff, I might have missed that memo about how Vancouver is too cool for this kind of art now, but oh well. I really really liked the show he had at misanthropy a few years back about the babies of the future (definitely subject matter that didn't involve junkies or titties). Someone should post some of those up!

About his subject matter, some kind of art critic that was really bent on trying to put meaning in what he does could say that the subject matter of a lot of his works and the placement are very intentional, the alleys, doorways, walls, etc. that host a lot of his stuff are found in an area/close to an area where it's pretty much just that in the eyes of a lot of people- sex and drugs. Haven't artists pretty much always captured what was happening around them socially for people years later to see and get a true understanding and context of what it was like at the time? ..or we could just throw that out the window and say that it just looks nice and that I'm sure none of us mind the dark's art being posted around the city. I would rather see a piece by the dark anywhere than some shitty, uninspired marker tag, or a sloppy piece thrown up with spraypaint in like 2 seconds.
