Events Photography exhibit at the historical Wing Sang Building in Chinatown, Vancouver BC


Today, I attended Malcolm Parry’s photography exhibit. The Wing Sang Building in Chinatown (Bob Rennie’s private gallery for his art collection) showcased 365 photographs by Malcolm Parry, who has documented over 40 years of Vancouver’s social scene. It was amazing to see the people and events he has captured over the years. In 2009, Malcolm wrote a piece in the Vancouver Sun about my Spaced Out! art show.

Events ‘Eggshells on Rice’ paintings by Sakai Featured At Dine Out Vancouver Event


I was invited to display food related paintings at a special event for Dine Out Vancouver at Pink Elephant Thai. None of my existing paintings were food related, so I decided to create new pieces. After a lot of contemplation on what to do, I chose to mix eggshells and rice into the paint rather than paint food as a subject matter.

At Pink Elephant Thai restaurant, I displayed the paintings like dinner settings with black napkins and chopsticks. It was a fun night, with music by DJ Jeremy Slattery, and live painting by Bill Higginson and Olga Rybalko, as well as great food!

Below are photos, courtesy of Norm Lee Photography.
