Every year, the city of Vancouver hosts a mural festival which brings artists from all over the area together to make art for the public. VMF also known as the Vancouver Mural Festival comes back to the city every year in August.
It sounds crazy, but it's an awesome time. Artists will open up the streets of Mount Pleasant and create a studio environment where locals can watch them create live art installations and pieces.
Not only is Vancouver a city known for it's art and culture, it's also known as the hometown of famous Hollywood actor, Seth Rogen.
There was a giant “paint by numbers” version of my head in Vancouver and I’ve never been more honoured. pic.twitter.com/xcUOHo71RD— Seth Rogen (@Sethrogen) August 12, 2018
This year, a Vancouver company called Paintillio decided to incorporate our favourite Canadian comedian into one of their pieces in a super weird way and Seth actually loved it! They decided to create a giant "paint by numbers" of Seth's head invited Vancouverites to help paint the huge mural of his enlarged face.
In a post on Twitter, Seth shared an image of Vancouver locals painting a picture of his face during the Vancouver Mural Festival. In the caption he wrote, "There was a giant "paint by numbers" version of my head in Vancouver and I've never been more honoured."
Thanks for the offer Seth. Let's DM and talk. ^rw— TransLink BC (@TransLink) May 24, 2018
It looks like Seth loved the fact that his fellow Vancouverites honoured him in this way.
Vancouverites are getting a lot of Seth lately. Just recently, it was announced that Seth would be replacing Morgan Freeman as the official voice of our city's transit system.
Now, whenever Vancouverites travel on the SkyTrain, we can hear our favourite comedians voice, Seth Rogen. In addition, Rogen is now voicing the transit announcements for Toronto as well.
