"Tom’s Door" by GNAY
Vancouver Sun - June 7 2016 – Tensions are building this morning as the GNAY standoff goes into day two. A Sun photographer captured this glimpse of the now deranged artist who is holding several hostages in a derelict Vancouver building. Sadly SWAT team snipers were not in place, at this moment, to “take the shot”. Although GNAY’s work has been “liked” by the Vincent van Gogh Museum, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, and our own National Gallery in Ottawa, no major gallery has yet to purchase any of his work. Local art aficionado, Bob Rennie, is rumoured to be advising the VPD in the tense negotiations with the crazed (but well loved) artist.
