Pixel Moments launches today and we’re very excited to be involved as a community partner! The project is an interactive photo-mosaic mural that aims to raise awareness about mental health and raise funds in support of St Paul’s Hospital Foundation. According to the Canadian Mental Health Association, 50% of the population will have or have had a mental illness by age 40.
Our job was to help the team find an artist to respond to the theme of mental health and create a mural at the corner of Granville and Georgia, in downtown Vancouver. We reached out to Andrea Wan, a Hong Kong-born Canadian visual artist and illustrator whose playful and poetic style felt like a great fit.
