As it’s Canada Day, Solopress’ “resident Canadian” is keen to share some of the amazing street art currently popping up around Vancouver. Artist IHeart is generating significant buzz and has even received some support from the legendary Banksy.
One example of IHeart’s work on the streets of Vancouver.
Endorsed By Banksy
Comparisons have been drawn between IHeart and the mysterious Banksy, whose work has made appearances frequently in the UK, then around the world and is now featured in television, film and books. Recently, IHeart received an endorsement from the Bristol-born artist, through his Facebook page. The post promoting his piece “Nobody Likes Me” has now been shared over 10,000 times.
“Nobody Likes Me” was the IHeart piece that caught Banksy’s eye.
A Boy With Ideas
IHeart, who, given the nature of what he does maintains a persona as secretive as Banksy’s, claims he is “just a boy with ideas, opinions and a whole lot of aerosol.” It’s quickly apparently that he shares his strong opinions on society and social commentary through his art.
Just keeping walking – on the streets of Vancouver.
I Spy IHeart In Vancouver
This Canada Day, while many are celebrating with fireworks and a few beers, others will prefer an alternative activity. For those in Vancouver, the holiday could be spent keeping a lookout for the latest IHeart creations around the city.
