ARE YOU A REG­U­LAR

at the East­side Cul­ture Crawl? Here are a few new faces on the mas­sive open-stu­dio tour that you may want to check out Thurs­day to Sun­day (Novem­ber 15 to 18):

JAKE BULL

(Mak­er­labs) Koolaid colours and a pop-art vibe bring to life por­traits of ev­ery­one from Mex­i­can wrestlers to merry-go-round horses and creepy clowns. It’s eye candy with an edge— no sur­prise, as Bull’s an alum­nus of Lon­don’s ad­ver­tis­ing in­dus­try.

MO SHER­WOOD

(1641 East Ge­or­gia Street) The art di­rec­tor of the cult Cana­dian an­i­mated se­ries Yvon of the Yukon brings the same quirky sen­si­bil­ity to ev­ery­thing from funky wooden sharks to styl­ized por­traits of Mo­town singers.

LAU­RIE M. LANDRY

(BC Artscape Sun Wah) We love the way Landry’s oil paint­ings re­flect her ex­pe­ri­ence of deaf­ness, es­pe­cially the por­traits of ges­tur­ing hands—some­times beau­ti­fully wrin­kled or pudgy— cap­tured as her sub­jects talk about them­selves through Amer­i­can Sign Lan­guage.

JA­SON YORK

(The Arc) With raw, brushy ex­pres­sion and bold hues—a favourite is pure, scream­ing orange—york’s ab­stracted works def­i­nitely speak with their own voice. But don’t be sur­prised if you see a bit of Jean-michel Basquiat or a hint of Andy Warhol in his im­agery.

CLAU­DINE GÉVRY

(Parker Street Stu­dios) The Mon­treal-bred artist’s sculp­tures and paint­ings fall clearly into the ab­stract cat­e­gory, but the forms feel so or­ganic that you’ll swear they came from na­ture. Seek out her unique mo­biles, with their ethe­real, tex­tured me­tal discs that bob and float.
