There’s a Live Graffiti Competition in Vancouver This Weekend

On August 5 and 6, the Vancouver Coalition of Graffiti Writers is hosting its first Graffiti Jam.

You’ve probably heard about Vancouver’s first-ever legal graffiti wall, which first launched last summer. This weekend, there’s a competition being held in that space: head over to the laneway at 133 West Pender to see talented local artists spray away.

On August 5 and 6 from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., the Vancouver Coalition of Graffiti Artists is hosting Clean Lines Vancouver Graff Jam, an event that includes live graffiti demonstrations, a contest and opportunities to connect with local graffiti artists. The artists that the Graff Jam is featuring include:
