One thing you could never say about Andrea Hooge's art is that it takes itself too seriously. Kittens begging for treats, a doll barfing rainbows and detailed renditions of Bill Murray characters are just some of the things she's brought to life. Her body of work is diverse, prolific and reflective of her high level of skill.

Andy Dixon is creatively multi-talented. Before achieving success as a visual artist, he pursued an impressive career in music. Dixon is currently based in Vancouver, where he focuses on his colorful multimedia paintings. I caught up with Dixon to talk about his new solo show Canadiana.

Everyone in Vancouver should go see this show while it's here. It's free, and you're basically hanging out with famous people and travelling through time all at once.

There is something for everyone at PuSh Fest, whether you're a broke student getting into the Vancouver arts scene (like me), or a performing arts industry veteran.
