East Van Art Print
The east van cross is a symbol formed by the words East and Van. Referencing the city’s eastern half, traditionally less wealthy and harder-edged east Vancouver, now part of a renaissance becoming the artistic and cultural centre. The iconic cross figure dates all the way back to the 1950s. Ken Lum, the artist, reflected the large catholic population in East Van at the time. The cross itself is in a derelict unloved urban landscape, through Anja Jane's illustrative style of collage you can see the representation of East Van residential streets bursting with quintessential vancouver cherry blossom and greenery.

Why We LOVE Anja Jane:
There is magic and a quiet sense of tranquility in Anja Jane’s work. The Pacific Northwest Artist has translated her deep connection to Mother Nature into intricate art prints and postcards featuring nature scenes from North America, from the lavish jungle of Hawaii to the enchanting British Columbia coastline or quaint tree-lined Montreal streets. In her nature scenes of luscious forests, vibrant flowers, whimsical creatures and sun-kissed mountains over turquoise waters, the folksy charm of her Norwegian and Polish heritage intertwines with the breathtaking landscape of the Pacific Northwest – now home for her.
