Meet LJ – Street Artist

I met LJ out one night while I was in downtown Vancouver checking out my friends band. LJ is a homeless man who survives on the street by selling his artwork to passers by. Finding materials in back alleys and dumpsters provides him with a new blank canvas everyday on with which he can express himself. During breaks in the concert I came outside and we got to spend about three 10 minutes sessions chatting away getting to know each other while he continued to work on his latest piece. He kindly allowed me to document with my camera his progress and in essence his way of life. Here are some of the shots;

Cheers LJ for letting me share your story
