Leading ad agency CRE8IVE is brought internationally renowned graffiti artist Vans the Omega to the capital as part of a celebration of 'ideas worth spreading' at Saturday’s (September 8) eagerly anticipated TEDxCanberra event.
Working within the event theme of An Optimistic Challenge, Vans the Omega showcased his unique talent in the often polarizing world of graffiti art, live, in a stripped-back performance that saw the artist create new artwork in less than a day, with over 600 event attendees watching on.
As Art Installation Partner at this year’s sold out TEDxCanberra, CRE8IVE is excited to support and showcase Vans the Omega, an artist with a gift for letterform, colour and impossible patterns. Vans has been painting for over two decades travelling the world and consistently pushing the boundaries of his specialism.
Each canvas that Vans created was put up for sale through an online auction, with proceeds going to a charity of the buyer’s choice.
CRE8IVE are passionate about great art and design and, from their offices on London Circuit, help businesses face their communication challenges with an optimistic approach.
Creative Director and Partner Alberto Florez commented: “It’s a huge pleasure that we can bring Vans to Canberra. We have long been admirers of his work and are excited by what he will produce at TEDxCanberra.”
“TEDxCanberra is the perfect opportunity for CRE8IVE to further demonstrate our commitment to the arts," said Florez. "Our Optimistic Challenge is that great art and design should be celebrated and enjoyed in whatever form it takes. Art is a way to look at things differently and when you do that, new ideas are born. Business supporting art is an idea worth spreading.”
