Comments Off on 15 Murals in Vancouver, British Columbia

Ever since Van Mural Fest (Vancouver, British Columbia Mural Festival) a few months back I have been itching to get out to the city and discover all the new and beautiful murals that were created. Well, after a recent visit to Strathcona and stumbling across a few there Julie and I decided to head down to Main Street after and see what else we could find. Surprisingly, the murals we found were all really close together (besides the 10 minute drive from Strathcona to Main Street).

Julie and I have split it up, you can find half of the murals we found below and then the other half you can check them out on her post here.

Some of the murals were absolutely HUGE, spanning so wide and so tall! It was impossible to get them in a full shot. Another listed is a building that is painted pink, solid pink walls all the way around. Not really a mural, but very popular in the Instagram world. We spotted it on our way from Strathcona to Main Street and of course had to stop for a photo.

If you are a mural fan, you also might want to plan a trip to Portland, Oregon. I went last summer, my sister and I biked around the city discovering murals along the way and that’s what started this whole mural fascination. See 10 Murals in Portland, Oregon here.

15 Murals in Vancouver, British Columbia ( Strathcona & Main Street Murals )

Not all of the names of the murals are their actual names, I am in the process of looking up the actual names and artist, comment below if you know them . I felt like that needed a little disclaimer.

  1. The Pink Wall

    This is the pink wall/pink building that I was talking about. All pink all the way around.

  2. The Wild Cartoon Wall

    This one is honestly so big! Impossible to get all in one shot! I would be curious to know how long it took from start to finish. Right around the corner from this one you can find a few more too! (See below)

  3. The Flying Birds, Cherry Blossoms & Birds Nest

    The perfect spring mural. Love the combination of baby blue and pale pink to create this colourful wall. This mural was quite large, the images below depending on where you stand on the wall captures a completely different scene.

  4. The Bright Pink Wall with Coloured Circle

    This painted tin wall is right down the street from Strathcona Beer Company (a must visit place while you are in the area, more info here). You could get a photo with just the bright pink or add in a bit of blue as seen below.

  5. “Lady Mermaids” – Lani Imre, Bronwyn Schuster, Amanda Smart & Tia Rambaran

    Notice the hand holding, pretty cuddly right? ha! This little guy is on the back side of the building which features a mermaid wall That mural is featured in Julie’s post.

  6. Low Bros // Basketball Wall

    The first image doesn’t really make the mural look like a basketball one, but it was just a wee snap of the actually really large mural. When you step back (second image) you can see much for of the mural. I was a fan of this section (first image).

  7. Pink Glow – Sarah Delaney

    I must say, this is MY FAVORITE. It was actually one of the ones from Van Mural Fest that REALLY stood out to me and got me the most excited about discovering more Vancouver Murals. This wall did not dissapoint friends. I even discovered the artist for this one, you can find her on Instagram: @sarahdelaneyart

  8. Woman Holding a Heart & Pineapple

    I didn’t even realize she was holding a heart until I went to write a title for this one. It’s not everyday you see a painting of a woman holding a heart and a Pineapple is it. This woman and the mural below “Music to my Ears” were right beside each other on East Third Street.

  • My blog started when Sophie was just six months old. She's been a part of it since the beginning, sharing the photoshoots, adventures and little rewards that have come along the way. I feel like this whole journey has provided so many surprises both big and small. Once of the best things is being able to give the kids bigger experiences we may not have been able to do otherwise as well as being reminded (thanks @kindercanada) to celebrate the little things with little surprises. This certain surprise turned into a big one when Sophie opened up her chocolate and found a mermaid toy inside (she just asked Santa for a mermaid for Christmas ... a real one... ha!) #ad #littlesurprisescount

Said goodbye to the decade that was a whole lot of discovering who I am and the things that make my soul happy. I travelled around, got married and became a mother to three beautiful children. Excited about this new decade and what’s to come. I kinda feel like life’s just beginning.
  • We had such a great time hosting both the media preview night and @shopandtalkmarket the past two days. We were filled with so much love and encouragement from so many of you. Thank you all for coming to shop, saying hi, donating your time, being a vendor... whichever it may be, you made an impact to create such a successful event. A special thank you to @grimmsfoods who not only donated food for the media preview but also made a special donation to the @abbotsfordfoodbank directly. Thanks to them and all of you we are able to support more families in need this season.

  • Every party I style I have this vision in my head and each time I have no idea if it's going to turn out, what looks like one day of styling is really a whole bunch of days (and lots of late nights) of planning. I've learnt a few things from when I first started styling parties and wanted to share my top tips for party planning.
NUMBER 1 - Don't do it alone. This specific party I had lots of help from @goldngrasses and @juliechristinephotography. Ask for help, styling tips, and have fun doing it with someone.
NUMBER 2 - Less is more. Focus on a few key food items and make them the focus. We used a whole lot of meat and cheese here and yummmmmy, it was good!
NUMBER 3 - The dollar store has everything a craft store has and more! Parties and pretty decor doesn't have to be expensive, mine as well save some $ where you can! •
If you are on the save money train and interested in checking out more ways to save (or perhaps even win something for free!!) head over to my friends at @irisvisualgroup and check out their 21 days of Christmas. They've got lots of tips, tricks and giveaways just for you. #sponsored #IRISvisualgroup

  • We got our new sled in the mail and Evelyn has been so into it! I decided we needed to go for a drive and find some snow and give it a try. It's safe to say she loved riding in our @rudolphesled and I can see many more joyful snow rides in the future.
•
Rudolphe just launched their sled line and it's perfect for little ones that could use a lift in the snow. There's a buckle to keep them securely seated and you can get a name personalized on the back, we had our last name engraved. Perfect for all your snowy adventures. #CWJWpartner #rudolphesled #rudolphe3000
