Share This Story

Every time we host a Call for Art, we assemble a panel of creative folks to sift through the thousands of submissions and whittle it down to the pieces that end up on our labels. We couldn’t do it without them!

Meet the curators who will be helping us select the art for our next series of can labels.

OLA VOLO

Ola Volo (BFA, Emily Carr University) is a Canadian illustrator from Kazakhstan with a distinctive style drawn from history, multiculturalism and folklore. Her intricate works bring animals, people, architecture and nature together to articulate diverse stories rich with symbolism and elaborate forms. Ola creates winding narratives that acknowledge the subtleties of human nature while celebrating the little surprises of everyday life.

Her work is widely recognized for its inventiveness and imaginative gesture; every character is full of spirited personality and inhabits a dynamic environment. Her work also lends itself often to the public realm with many of her murals helping to shape and beautify outdoor spaces across the world. As well as creating commissions for a wide range of international clients including Starbucks, Louis Vuitton, Lululemon and Volkswagen, Ola also finds time to do her own gallery artwork.

LAWREN ALICE

Artist & muralist Lawren Alice is best known for creating vibrant, freehand, flourish pattern designs that are slowly taking over both private and public wall space in her home city of Philadelphia. Finding inspiration in color palettes painted on Pakistani art trucks, compositional elements found in Norwegian rosemaling, and drippy background layers present in aerosol and graffiti work, Alice’s free-flow style perfectly couples traditional decorative arts with a fresh modern twist that feels both refreshing and balanced. With painting still considered just a growing hobby for Alice, the majority of her daylight hours for the past 8 years have been proudly spent as the Curator and Co-founder of the popular Old City-based new contemporary art gallery & boutique, Arch Enemy Arts.

JAY BELLICCHI

Jay Bellicchi, AKA “REMOTE”, is an American artist, designer, sculptor and creator who developed in 1980s Boston’s hip hop and graffiti culture, where he was given the name REMOTE. He is known both for the dynamism of his geometric and boldly colorful mural work as well as for his inventive, conceptual transformation into sculptural works of the tools he uses to paint murals.

The nexus of his formal and conceptual practice is a marriage of graphic design and graffiti culture, of tension between mapped geometric order and rogue, boundary breaking.  Inspired by the constant birth, decay and rebirth of the rigorously designed yet constantly improvised urban environment, Jay’s mural work is a kind of sacred street geometry of mark-making which is formally driven by the the dynamic relationship between planned process and spontaneous creation or action, wherein each piece takes an underlying symmetry and then explodes it.
