Introduction to Resin Art

April 22, 2023



The Vancouver Visual Art Foundation invites you to get creative with our series of art classes with talented artist Kevin O’Quinn

Join an in-person workshop that combines old and new techniques to create handmade mixed media art. You’ll learn how to lay down images, apply spray paint, incorporate different materials, and learn not to be afraid of a torch.

We will go over materials, techniques, and safety precautions. Finally, you’ll have the opportunity to try out everything you’ve learned in a hands-on session with plenty of time to experiment.

This mixed media workshop is perfect for beginners and experienced artists alike.

About the Instructor:

Freakshow is the moniker of filmmaker and Street Pop artist Kevin O’Quinn.

He begins the creative process by preparing his surface with multiple layers of vintage magazine paper in order to define the edges and delineate the background planes of color. He then alternates layers of paint and vintage paper ephemera, sanding away portions of the layers as he works, revealing the desired portions of under painting with the overall intention to provide the viewer with a muted window into the pieces past.

Freakshow’s art depicts subversive & nostalgic plays on icons of the past and present, using a wide range of techniques and mediums including vintage collage, acrylic and aerosol paint, diamond dust and resin.
