Artist Tiko Kerr’s paintings capture the vibrancy of our neighbourhoods. This year he pays a tribute to the endangered heritage site in the West End. “Maxines” is located at Bidwell and Davie and it is threatened by demolition and to be replaced by a massive tower.
In his words, “Vancouver’s Food Bank and the image of Maxine’s House of Beauty speaks of community and the many forms that nourishment takes”.
