Laurel Terlesky
Through a surrealist pop culture approach to portraits, Laurel explores our dependency on electricity and power and the future
of sustainable energy practices.  Created on large canvas using oil, acrylic and aerosol she presents electricity as part of the human sense of self.
After travelling through the United States, tapping into the touch-and-go atmosphere of pop culture from New York to San Francisco as well as footing through a handful of Canadian cities from Montreal to Vancouver, Laurel made her home in Squamish, BC. She completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a major in Painting from the University of Victoria in 1999 and has been actively creating and contributing to the artistic community in which she surrounds herself.

State of the ART – TWSSF

Opening night – Friday April, 13th, 8pm

TELUS World Ski and Snowboard Festival is all about the riding, the free concerts, the nightlife and for the discerning palate, the art. At State of the Art, all pillars of the WSSF come together to provide a platform for mountain town inspiration.
There are no rules and this is not a paint-inside-the-lines event. Sub-cultures and anti-movements are celebrated and portrayed in gritty and thought-provoking mediums. Invited artists come from far and wide to create a community of urban street and snow ingenuity, and push the boundaries of the State of the Art. There’s no entry fee, and you can stroll around the Grand Foyer of the Whistler Conference Centre, immerse yourself in artistic talent, rub shoulders with the who’s who of the creative world and even pick up a one-of-a-kind piece for yourself.
State of the ART Opening Party, 8pm, Free
See what happens when fashion and art collide. Live painting on live models to create the ART-pocalypse Collection – the last word in wearable art.
Live painting by TJ Schneider for Lifetime Collective
Live painting by Olga Cuttell for Prior Skis & Snowboards
Whistler Arts Council present ‘Artists in Wonderland’. Live art daily plus your chance to create a masterpiece on the digital graffiti wall (Friday, April 13 – Sunday, April 15).

A few new works inspired by water will be on display at the festival this year. Giclee prints will be available from my series “We love this stuff so much…” at the SOA store.

Come by and say hi to me while I live paint during the festival at the Whistler Telus Conference Center – Wednesday April 18 2  – 6pm and during Intersection from 8pm on.
