Vancouver's Black Metal Art Exhibition 'BLACK' ft. Beste
Reminder - Next Week- June 10-19 Vancouver's Black Metal
Internationally renowned photographer Peter Beste and graphic artist Christophe Szpajdel will be featured in the first installation of Vancouver’s “Black”, The Black Metal Exhibition being held from June 11 - 19 at the Evergreen Cannabis Society (2868 West 4th Avenue).
"Black" has been conceived by local photographer Kevin Eisenlord, who has joined forces with Abelardo Mayoral, concert promoter at The Invisible Orange to materialize this event. "I actually came in contact with Christophe through friends in black metal band Idolatry whom I had done pictures for and Peter is an icon in the black metal community in general, so I messaged him as I was really interested in a critic of my photos because he is one the most respected authorities in black metal photography. From there I have developed a friendship with both as I look up to their work and thus the reason for showcasing two of the world's great Black Metal artists in Vancouver, plus nothing like this has ever been held in the city before." comments Eisenlord. The exhibition will feature the photography of Peter Beste, a documentary photographer based in Portland, Oregon and well known in the Metal community for his photography book “True Norwegian Black Metal”.
