(2205 Commercial Drive)

By Artist: Nick Gregson

Nickolas Gregson’s artistic practice is rooted in graffiti and community centered public art. Raised in East Vancouver, Gregson drew inspiration from local street art and the sanctioned graffiti spaces of Leeside Tunnel Skateboard Park. Gregson’s long term goal of establishing initiates for mural artist is now taking shape through his recently launched Metro Vancouver Art and Mural Society. Founded by this non-profit intends to allow for collaboration among artists and community members in the urban transformation of blank walls into supports for artwork.

“I got a chance to connect with veterans, hear their stories, hear about the struggles they’re still going through,” Gregson said of his Legion artwork. “I’m thankful personally for the freedom I have day to day, freedom I have thanks to them. N. Gregson”

Gregson’s murals appear on city walls and his canvas work exhibited in art galleries but have also graced the cover of a popular freely distributed Vancouver Magazine. Visit Nick Gregson’s website for more information and examples of his projects.
