Emily Gray

A vision of global unity

"From micro to macro we are all unified on a molecular level"

In Downtown Eastside Vancouver, where “82% of visible minorities say they have experienced prejudice or some form of discrimination” (Vancity, 2017).

Vancouver based Emily Gray’s work consists greatly of community based art, as her mission is to empower people through the creative process. Often collaborating with a diverse group of fellow artists as well as members of disenfranchised communities, Emily's artwork portrays her vision of global unity as a cosmic cobweb, representing the strength of the connection between humankind from a molecular to a cosmic level.

For every limited-edition sold, we're proud to donate all profits to Emily's community programme that provides materials to plant a community garden with immigrants and refugees in the area in collaboration with a new housing project of the Immigrant Services Society of British Columbia (ISSBC).

The garden will host numerous varieties reflecting the cultural diversity of the community, and its harvest will contribute the ingredients for a communal dinner with dishes from all around the world.
