Vancouver Art Attack was originally founded to bridge the gap between students, artists and collectors, while also raising funds to support local artists and art-related organizations. The success rate of this yearly event continues to strengthen relationships within the Vancouver art community.

This years event was hosted by the Waterfall Building in False Creek, and in their courtyard and gallery, guests were exposed to live painters, carvers, workshops and demos, with the lively beats of a spinning DJ and refreshments from Steamwhistle Brewery.

The saying is true, Vancouver is not short on talent. Witnessing a piece of art being created from start to finish is a bewitching experience everyone should have at least once in their lifetime. In four hours the artists presented their pieces, each unique to its own likeness. Auctioneer, Paul Becker sold paintings which included surrealism by Jace Kim, abstract diptychs by Sussanah Paranich, and a portrait of Meredith by David.
