This piece depicts a common sight in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside; a guy cycling along the street with a supermarket shopping cart, loaded with his worldly goods. I wanted to produce a socially relevant positive image of life in the neighbourhood, illustrating the resilience of marginalized people in the face of adversity.

À propos de l'artiste
À propos de l'artiste

Jeff Wilson
Vancouver, BC

Jeff is a Scottish-Canadian painter based in Vancouver. His paintings are inspired by everyday observations of subjects that illustrate a story or issue distinctive to a given place. Compositions are characteristically cropped and asymmetric, and canvases are rendered with strong brushwork, and a rich, commonly vivid palette. Jeff has a number of collections currently exhibiting in Western Canada and USA. A collection, inspired by a residence in the Shetland Islands last year, premiered at Maple Ridge Art Gallery earlier this year. A recent grant from the Vancouver Foundation inspired completion of a collection depicting Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, which is scheduled to exhibit at the Cultch in Vancouver in 2016.
