Artist Spotlight: Michael Halbert with his Craft Brewery Artwork


Happy Friday everyone!

Before you head off for some weekend cheers and drinks, we were wondering...do any of these images look familiar to you?








If they do, it's probably because you have seen them at some point while you wander Vancouver - perhaps at a restaurant, or passing by Gastown...


Ta-dah!! For today's feature, we'd like to cast the spot on scratchboard artist Michael Halbert, who gives this local favourite its recognizable charm!

Michael Halbert is by far one of my art idols. His specialty is in scratchboard illustration, a process in which the image comes alive through the artist scratching the lines off, revealing the negative space. The amount of detail and precision that is in his work is absolutely mindblowing, and I just had to share and spread the love.

If you are unfamiliar with his work, you can find some of his most iconic pieces on the branding of Vancouver-based craft brewery "Steamworks". Check out his magic below:


Totally amazing!!

Ideas Corner Feature: Wedding Instagram Booth!

Although we've been in this business for a while, every so often a client will order a product and implement it in a way we had never dreamed of before! Such was the case a couple of weeks ago when we had a customer come in to order a poster that was to be mounted on foamcore for his fiancee's bridal shower - except he also requested us to cut a window into it, so it would become an Instagram photo booth!




Super neat! This project was made by drymounting the client's already printed poster onto white foamcore, then reinforcing the cut window with extra matboards to serve as a photo "frame". Wish we could've seen it used in person, we loved this idea!

Got any creative mounting ideas for us? Let us know in the comments below! Want to order one for your bridal shower? Check out our dry mounting prices here!


KeenArt Media specializes in customized canvas and fine art printing and reproduction. We also offer services in dry mounting, plaque mounting, and plexi-face mounting. We also do custom cut boards in various materials, such as foamcore, plexi, aluminum and matboard. Check out our website or contact us for details for custom orders such as today's feature.

Artist Spotlight: Peter Jurik


We're always wowed whenever we get to see artworks made by our clients, and pieces by Peter Jurik has always left us with deeply impressed.

Amy Winehouse, Peter Jurik

Born in Czechoslovakia, Peter moved over to Canada in 1968, and now resides in Vancouver. His sense of gripping realism and eye for detail is astounding, especially when it carries over a wide variety of subjects: automobiles, sailboats, wildlife, and portraiture.

The Stones, Peter Jurik

Our personal favorites are part of his Canadian wildlife collection, painted with watercolors. As watercolors are notoriously difficult to work with, it never ceases to amaze me how Jurik captures the depth of his subjects with such richness.

Couple, by Peter Jurik

You can buy some of Peter's work from his website here. We can't wait to see more from this incredible artist on his Canadiana subjects!

Victory, Peter Jurik
