Kaitlynn Copithorne’s illustrative work focuses on traditional folklore and the intersection of the supernatural world and the mundane. Her intent for the duration her residency is to create an original illustrated storybook that will be hand bound, with the text and illustrations created entirely by silkscreen printing. The book will be thematically based on the folklore and tradition of witchcraft in Early Modern Britain, and will feature characters based on animals traditionally associated with witches.
The ArtBreakers Market is a two-day exhibit of over 40 professional illustrators and designers with original and printed work for sale.
Our artist roster for 2018 features artists from Vancouver, Canada, and abroad. Each individual brings a unique approach to image making, be it traditional, digital, or a combination of the two. From illustrators to animators, comic creators to concept artists, ArtBreakers exhibitors are the cream of the crop.
CAAF’s current artist resident, Kaitlynn Copithorne, will host an Open Studio on the 4th floor of cSPACE in Suite #435. Kaitlynn Copithorne's illustrative work focuses on traditional folklore and the intersection of the supernatural world and the mundane, with a particular fascination with the witchcraft traditions of Early Modern Europe.
