Damian John created this mural on the Vernon Street retaining wall next to the Salvation Army (down the stairs) for the Nelson International Mural Festival in 2022.

“Damian loves art as a way of saying something, anything! It can be important, mundane, fantastic, colourful, terrible, quiet or loud. It is through this voice that he believes some of our most beautiful messages are relayed to one another. As such, he is always working to create story through his art in line, colour, and composition.”

120 Silica St, Nelson, BC, V1L 4M1

Turbo Bambi created this mural for the 2022 Nelson International Mural Festival on the side of the Nelson Leaf’s Recycling Centre.

“Blending the lines from backcountry to canvas, Bambi’s passion for the outdoors feeds her desire to create. Immersed in the snow-surf-skate culture, her work ranges from an eccentric & humoristic take on street art to a minimalistic approach. As a thrill-seeking mixed media artist, Bambi’s process is defined by the motto “Shred & Create”.”
