BLINGWEAR EXHIBITION REVIEW: ROBE BRINGS BACK THE LOVE TO BOUNTAGU

The IITS team were down last Saturday to the new Bountagu shop in Edmonton to showcase the amazing talent of our resident artist, Robe AKA Blingwear Boy. The exhibition was truly one to remember as it involved the whole community.

The afternoon started of with card making workshops. Since it’s the month of love we decided to create Valentine’s Day cards with that Robe touch, which was a big hit with the kids and surprisingly adults too. From when doors opened at lunchtime until nightfall when the team finally packed down we greeted a steady stream of curious locals, budding artists and admirers of Robes unique graffiti-inspired creations. Music played, mics were blessed by local rap talent and pieces were purchased from customised trainers to vinyl artwork.Fun was had by all, check out our guestbook below.

“This workshop was amazing, I enjoyed it so much and so did my kids. Beautiful artwork! These kinds of workshops should be organised every now and then so that people can attend and enjoy a nice family day. Our community need more of these workshops for a positive message and to inspire us and our youth.” Leila Ferrat 

“This is a very creative & imaginative workshop. It lets you be an arty person in anyway possible. I enjoyed it very much and hope they will do another one.” Blair Burrell, Tiana Thompson, Jess Jardine, Tiatt and Cheyenne Burrell
