Feast Your Eyes: SWATCH ART + Soul @ WSSF

We’ve run through the World Ski Snowboard Festival vital stats, and we’ve got you stoked to watch the return of the Saudan Couloir Ski Race Extreme this weekend.

But WSSF isn’t all numbers and adrenaline. We’re going for full right-brain-left-brain stimulation at this fest. Stimulate the senses with a wander through the SWATCH ART + Soul exhibit now through til Friday, and see a kaleidoscope of creativity driven by the mountain landscape, people and culture, an eclectic and colourful collection of styles, genres and media of all kinds.

Check out the artists painting live in the afternoons and you can even pick up an original piece for your very own. But don’t delay…talent moves quick around here whether it sports skis or a pen.

Check out images from the Instagram accounts from a small selection of the long list of talented artists on show and make tracks for the Whistler Conference Centre to see the entire exhibition before it ends on Friday April 13.  Long live art!

“When it is working, you completely go into another place, you’re tapping into things that are totally universal, completely beyond your ego and your own self. That’s what it’s all about.” – Keith Haring Come see my latest work at the Whistler Art Show on April 11-13, 2018 at the World Ski and Snowboard Festival. #wssf2018 #wssf #worldskiandsnowboardfestival #whistler #exhibit #coolstorybro #nyc #brooklyn #365daydrawingchallenge #artdrawing #davidxinart #artist #oilpainting #popart #artcollective #illustration #art #artdrawing #ink #artist #artcollection
