Taking place April 25 through 28, 2019, Art Vancouver connects the international art community under one roof at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Among the accomplished artists at this year’s fair will be siblings Talin Wayrynen, Taisha Wayrynen and Skyla Wayrynen.
Raised in a creative household, the siblings have been exposed to various artistic mediums and projects throughout their lives. Each developed their own distinct styles that reflect their individual passions. Interested in travel, nature and drone photography, Talin travels to capture aerial images of sights that inspire him, the most recent locale being Mexico. Taisha and Skyla both specialize in mixed media and acrylic paint on canvas. Skyla has frequently combined acrylics with spray paint in a modern way that is characteristic of street art, while Taisha uses some spray paint and even glitter. Both focus on themes of empowerment. In Skyla’s case, this relates to her interests in lifestyle philosophies. Taisha is studying art therapy, and is excited about using creativity as a supplementary antidote to physical and mental health ailments.
The three siblings are presently exhibiting at Hollyburn Gallery located in the Hollyburn Country Club in West Vancouver and will bring their works to Art Vancouver in April.
