Rising star Ilya Viryachev, who was born in Almaty, Kazakhstan and immigrated at a young age to Vancouver, is nothing short of busy. Everything from traditional painting, art installations, murals, and being involved in the local art community. Ilya spends countless hours creating piece after piece.

Meet Vancouver Art Attack 2014 participating artist, Brent Clowater who has recently been featured in the Georgia Straight! Brent is an amazing up and coming artist, with a style all his own, he uses soft washes, saturated colours and hard edges to turn his drawings from real life into dreamy and luminous watercolour paintings, giving his watercolour works a realism and depth to them..
If you didn't get a chance to see him in action at this years Vancouver Art Attack, you can always see him making appearances at the weekly SNAG art raffle and live painting showcase at the Cobalt.
