YKLM Auctions is pleased to work with our community of artists to host a charity auction benefiting the VGH & UBC Hospital Foundation. Through YKLM’s resources and online platform, 100% of proceeds will be donated to support Vancouver’s hospitals most urgent needs. This online auction will begin on Thursday, April 2nd at 12 PM (PST) and run until Monday, April 6th at 12 PM (PST).
The local artist Agent X, better known as the Canadian Banksy, has graciously donated ten prints for this sale, featuring refined florals and colourful Pop Art works. Following his training at the Art Institute of Vancouver, he developed his own mash-up style, which combines vibrant accents of colour set against various mixed media. In his striking works, Agent X presents a less superficial version of Pop Art, by juxtaposing the ephemera of the past with the glossy aesthetics of print culture. His works are collected internationally, and YKLM is pleased to be working directly with the artist for this event.
All works are printed locally by WetINK Fine Art, located on Bowen Island. We thank Jon Smith and his team for their generous contribution.
