Local Boy Tatau is collaborating with Vancouver’s Downtown Association and the Ke Kukui Foundation to make Vancouver more colorful — way more colorful.

Artists are painting 14 murals around downtown from Fifth to 11th streets. Collectively, this party-with-paint is known as the Great River Arts Festival, in which local artists create vibrant tableaus that celebrate Vancouver’s diverse culture and history.
