abstract wall art commissions - ARCHERY EXHIBIT - tED 2024 - vancouver

TED Intro

The brief was to create an abstract mural that would decorate the wall partitioning the archery exhibit from the rest of Ballroom D. 

I worked with a graphic designer to approve the abstract arrow design and was given freedom over materials and colours. I decided to use only local reclaimed materials that were considered excess or waste. 


The final work titled, 'Artchery' measures 30ft wide by 8ft high and consists of 28 different panels including:  Weathered Cedar from an old fence; ⁠Fir from a cancelled wood project; ⁠OSB board from an old shipping container; ⁠Acoustic felt (defective) from a soundproof booth; ⁠Pegboard recycled from TED 2023 and ⁠Laminate (defective) from a project. 

Now that the TED conference has finished, this work is available to rent or purchase. Please email me with your expression of interest.

Here are some renderings showing the art in different orientations on a white wall. Red, white and teal panels can be customized to any colour to suit a space. Please email me if you are interested in renting or buying this artwork.

abstract wall art commissions - originals store - granville st - vancouver

The brief was to create an original artwork that was mindful of the 
local culture, company brand and used reclaimed materials.

Crows were the main inspiration for this piece. Up to 6000 Northwest crows commute into Downtown daily to scavenge and find shelter. They are also capable of doing something any human can only dream of... FLY!


Vancouver is a city of extremes, with both the richest and poorest zip codes in the whole of Canada. The rich come into the city to earn and spend, the poorest also come into the city to scavenge and find shelter.


I was struck by the commonalities between us and the crows and wanted to express, through abstract shape and material choice, some of the tensions between; diversity and similarity, unity and disunity, equality and inequality, rich and poor, broken and beautiful

ADIDAS art Trefoil Granville Street Adidas Originals Store Vancouver

The inspiration for this piece was the iconic adidas Trefoil logo with some playful abstraction applied within the confines of a circle. Locally sourced reclaimed materials include cedar, leather, acrylic and plywood. Even the playful teal and pink colour combination were reclaimed paint samples.
