VMF Mural 2019
Saturday kind of love
Mural location: 8 W8th Ave, Vancouver, BC
Carmen Chan’s 2019 VMF Mural titled, “Saturday kind of love,” is a play on words of the song “Sunday kind of love” released in 1947, which describes the feeling of longing for a lasting life-long love. For Carmen, her “Saturday kind of love” is art. She dedicates the mural to the many mornings spent visiting her art teacher’s studio on Saturdays to learn and practice Chinese brush painting. This painting captures the feeling of a relaxed weekend morning, carefree and joyful, like a pair of butterflies fluttering in a blooming iris garden. A print of the original painting is available for purchase for a limited time during the 2019 Vancouver Mural Festival.
