Artists Trevor ‘Curly’ Peters and Alex Labarda invite viewers to their wold of fantastic yet familiar characters. Paying homage to 80’s New York graffiti artists, Trevor and Alex’s works inhabit unusual environments and recreated walls, buffed over multiple times. It also serves as a strong visual component juxtaposed with graffiti inspired shapes, letters and characters. While some of the works are inspired by pop culture, leaning towards the hip hop aesthetic, these fairytale narratives often contain a darker and sinister tone addressing specific social and environmental issues.
YEG people invites you to celebrate the launch of our website and to toast all the amazing people that helped bring this project to life. Join us on Friday November 13th, when we take over Edmonton City Centre’s underground parkade for a night of cocktails, conversations, and carousing with Edmonton’s finest! The parkade will be transformed like it has never been before – fit for those dressed to impress.
