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.
