Art Spirit Community
is a group in the Granville/Point Grey Deanery in the Archdeaconry of Vancouver who have come together to create a visual arts event in two parts: An illustrated lecture
given by artist Tiko Kerr
on Wednesday, October 26th at 7:30pm, St. Philip's, Dunbar, 3737 West 27th Avenue
and a visual arts conference in the spring of 2012.
Some of Tiko Kerr's current art is based on the notions of home and homelessness in Vancouver.
He believes art is a very important way to bring social issues to the attention of the greater community because as he so correctly observes, "art has no enemies."
Much of Tiko's art involves self portrait images containing medical paraphernalia collected from his years of HIV treatment. Better to become art than end up in landfill. The image below is an example.
