Cat & Mouse, 2012

By Mark Soo

Cat & Mouse consists of graphic “poems” cut from adhesive vinyl. Text fragments derived from popular culture and colourful graphic styles related to commercial signage become entangled to stimulate word play and associative layers of meaning.

Mark Soo lives and works in Berlin and Vancouver. He graduated from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design and has exhibited widely in Canada and Internationally. Soo was the recipient of a Jack and Doris Shadbolt Foundation VIVA Award for the Visual Arts in 2009.

This artwork was commissioned by the City of Vancouver Public Art Program for Platforms: Artist-Initiated Projects in partnership with InTransit BC
