This week, the Garden is proud to present Abi Taylor and “Murals of Gratitude”.
Abi Taylor is an artist living and creating in North Vancouver, BC. Her work focuses on the day to day, and highlights seemingly mundane objects with a variety of lines and washes. Negative space is a considerable part of the composition in her work, although in mood and feeling Abi’s work extrudes a warm, positive energy.
Her first mural — a portrait of provincial health officer Bonnie Henry, painted on the boarded-up windows of Kimprints in Vancouver’s Gastown neighbourhood — drew media attention for its implicit message of hope and appreciation during the COVID-19 health crisis.
Abi is currently studying visual arts at Emily Carr, and when she graduates she would like to continue working on the west coast as an illustrator, drawing graphic novels.
