Victoria’s own local airbrush mural artist Paul Archer is proud to announce the opening of his latest gallery show to the public.

Known for murals throughout Canada, the US and Caribbean, Archer’s work has been showcased in Vancouver including at the Planetarium, Aquarium, and Airport.

He has also been featured on the front pages of several newspapers, including the Times Colonist (for the iconic Marilyn Monroe mural stolen from Floyd’s Diner), the Vancouver Sun, the Province, the Prince George Citizen, and in Playboy magazine for a mural he painted for Van Halen’s frontman David Lee Roth.

Archer has also worked closely with Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath for various projects, including a backdrop for the 1999 reunion tour.

He’s also painted for Rob Zombie, Lady Gaga, Sting, Sarah McLachlan, Alice Cooper, and Gene Simmons.

A Showcase of Latest Creations

This pre-Halloween based event will feature some of Archer’s latest creations on canvas and panels, including the unveiling of his new series entitled “Cardboard Heroes” a tribute to Victoria’s homeless people.

The evenings of Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th will feature the classic rock of Victoria’s own ROXXLYDE.

“This will be a weekend of chaos, art, and excitement for everyone attending,” said Archer.

*The event will also be accepting new unwrapped toys for children to donate to the TLC for Kids and CFAX Santa Anonymous.
