100 Amigos Exhibition provides friendly space to see new creations from local artists
Where: MNP Tower, 1021 W. Hastings St., Vancouver
The original inspiration for the show appeared in 2006 when El Kartel owner and graphic artist Pablo Zamudio was shopping at a local art store.
“I saw this one-foot-by-one-foot canvas and I was like this is great. I thought how about I’ll have a show with 30 artists, no 40 artists and then how about 100?” said Zamudio during a recent phone call from Mexico. “I remember I just loaded my Jeep with 100 canvases, and I started calling all my artist friends.
“I called it 100 Amigos. It was a huge success. It was a beautiful show, so I kept doing it.”
