Paint manufacturer Taubmans is curating Off Canvas, a unique celebration of artistic talent displayed by a new generation of artists and sign writers who have made their way from walls and windows to museums and galleries.

Using paint as their medium and the streets as their canvas, these artists are contributing to the visual culture of the present and breaking the boundaries of traditional art forms.

Off Canvas has been curated by Taubmans Paints as a tribute to its founder, George Henry Taubman, a sign painter himself in the early 1900s who started the Taubmans business to source the best quality paint for his trade.

The Off Canvas initiative aims to communicate the passion and talent of Australian street artists, sign writers and other creative minds.

Off Canvas will also be bringing this celebration of unique talent into the tangible at the 2015 Eat Drink Design Awards, sponsored by Taubmans. Prolific street artist and Off Canvas ambassador Rone will showcase his distinctive aesthetic and technique by creating two custom art works live at the event.
