FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Artists Raymond Chow and Stacy Sakai debut their unique TREADZ Tire Art paintings at the Luxury & Supercar Weekend, September 8-9, 2012 at VanDusen Botanical Garden!
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA (Saturday, August 11, 2012) – Raymond Chow and Stacy Sakai combine their artistic talents to create a unique series of paintings using tires to impress tread marks onto the canvas! To create these abstract expressionist works of art, tires of various types and brands are covered in paint, and then rolled across a prepared canvas. This leaves a beautiful impression of the tire, the energy of the application, and the artist’s choice of colour, direction and pressure.
