Unlike other billboard art programs, PTC hopes to showcase art on billboards for years to come.

“This collaboration with PTC will offer such an exclusive, once in a lifetime opportunity to some of our artists. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am for RAW Canada as an organization and our very talented artists who will be featured on these billboards across the Canada!”, says Cynthia Ballesteros, Director of Canadian Events, RAW Canada.

By hyper exposing artwork outside the traditional context of museums and galleries, Paint the City creates unique platforms for an unparalleled public encounter with the art of our time.  RAW currently showcases independent artists in fashion, music, visual art, film, performing art, photography, hair and makeup, in over 80 cities across the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Australia each month. PTC and RAW Artists are aiming to grow together in their unilateral mission of connecting people with art.

“Paint the City is thrilled to work with RAW Canada and to showcase their talented artists to viewers on a daily basis. We believe that these newly equipped Daily Art Viewers (aka DAVers) will not only be inspired to further experience and learn more about the highlighted art, but will also be motivated by the transformative powers of art”, says Jordan Manfredi co-founder and marketing director of PTC.
