Ramsey's Yellow Fish

Powell River artist/muralist Luke Ramsey has been in the news recently, having been named
Victoria's Artist in Residence for 2017. He has also just completed a local workshop for budding teen muralists,
some of whose designs he will paint in the Teen Room of our new Public Library, and he is commissioned to do
murals for the new BC Children's Hospital surgical floor. I caught his one-man show at the Madrona Gallery in
Victoria a few years ago, and sought out his most recent large Victoria mural (on Cormorant St)
 this past spring. While his art is admittedly not for everyone, it is interesting. The small work pictured here can
be found on a fence on Cranberry St (across from Magpie's).

There is always a comic around - note some wit has stapled a fishing lure in front of the mouth!

  1. I gaze at that fence when I enjoy breakfast at Margaret's. The whole fence used to be painted, but half is now bare. Is there something new coming? This is great to have a Powell Riverite honored as an artist in residence. - Margy
