On, Wednesday, Nov 16 Red Bull Canada hosted the Canvas Cooler Project in Toronto, at 99 Sudbury. Established and emerging artists came together to transform Red Bull styler coolers into pieces of art. These pieces of art will be on display for patrons to admire at their local watering holes and restaurants, around Toronto.
We we honoured to work with all the artists of talent that took part in yesterday's festivities. Their skill, creativity and originality came out in vibrant form over the course of the day. The artists had 9 hours in which to take a wrapped canvas mini cooler and turn it into a functional piece of art. Throughout the day, friends, family and fans were encouraged to come down to 99 Sudbury and witness the event. In between strokes of paint, the artists themselves took to Twitter to showcase their creations throughout the day. The artists involved, we're excited to be a part of such a dynamic event, which allows their work to be displayed in a unique way:
"Thank you so much for this opportunity. It's so cool and important, that Red Bull is doing this..." - Ian Turner - artist painting for Salvador Darling
