!! OMG, chill vibes for all: “Dude Chilling Park” sign becomes official and permanent for East Vancouver park !!

Residences of East Vancouver’s Guelph Park have got some sweet new public art to celebrate this week, as the “DUDE CHILLING PARK” sign that appeared in their park (but was taken down) — has made its triumphant and permanent return!

The sign was created by artist Viktor Briestensky and designed to mirror the format of other city park signs. Its original location was near a Michael Dennis sculpture of a lounging figure in Guelph Park. When park staff noticed the sign last November, it was taken down. But an outpouring of support through social media for the sign led the park board to reconsider.

Though, not everyone is happy.
It wouldn’t be the year 2014 without some uptight bitches weighing in on this! Steven Bohus of RAMP, the Residents Association of Mount Pleasant, says his organization was not consulted about the sign.

“A lot of the residents feel that this isn’t a game. There is a school there, there’s a parents’ advisory committee, and I don’t think this is a joke.”

Actually, Steve — pretty sure it is a joke — a good one. Just have a seat and chill, dude! Pretty sure it’s not gonna effect the school kids. (Besides, shouldn’t RAMP be busy over at the elementary school trying to change Halloween to “black and orange day”?)

Meanwhile, Vancouver Park Board Commissioner Trevor Loke says that “more than 300 local residents were consulted with 8 per cent disapproving of the sign. 1,500 residents signed a petition in favour of the sign.” Park Board Commissioner Sarah Blyth says that the support on Twitter has been huge, and that she’s never “seen such broad support in a long time for art.”

Congrats to the residences of Mount Pleasant and welcome back, DUDE CHILLING PARK! Chill vibes for all!

“The idea that rebellion is at the margins of society – that’s false, it’s far more interesting to be mischievous from the centre.” – Grayson Perry

Turner Prize-winning artist, Grayson Perry, known for his ceramic vases and cross-dressing (those two always go hand-in-hand), was honoured by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace this past week for “30 years of hard graft” (that means 30 years of hard work in British speak, y’all!).

Perry worked a very Camilla Parker Bowles-esque look in a midnight blue dress and matching fitted jacket with a wide brimmed black-hat with some ostrich feathers for flare! Perry himself called the outfit very “Italian mother-of-the-bride”.

!! OMG, how virtuosic and surreal: ‘Eager’ by Allison Schulnik !!


Artist Allison Schulnik has created a new animation called “Eager,” which takes us on psychedelic claymation journey through a dystopian Garden of Eden where faceless acolytes conduct fertility rituals, ride on hung horseback and absorb one another as the landscape explodes and implodes.
Okay, that was my attempt at describing it. Now watch.
