As the City Spins Around You

“My Vancouver is very different from your Vancouver. My Vancouver is based on where I work, where I shop, where I live, where my friends are. We all live in our own versions of the city. And how interesting would it be to paint different versions of Vancouver as little worlds in themselves? This space is at Victory Square at Cambie and Hastings. It is sort of a midpoint between the downtown east side and where it starts to become downtown.” – Shallom Johnson
