House of PainT has released its first ever Street Art Colouring Book. This book contains 18 unique colouring pages by 14 different graffiti artists, tattoo artists, and muralists, complemented by quotes from the artists about the importance of graffiti and public art. The House of PainT Street Art Colouring Book is bilingual English/French and makes a great gift for children and adults with its diverse selection of drawings, from simple and young-child friendly, to a handful of detailed and intricate pages for meditative colouring.
We believe in supporting local, and we want you to feel good about buying The House of PainT Street Art Colouring Book for yourself and literally everyone you have ever met. Here’s why it is the perfect #shoplocal #supportlocal item for your holiday shopping list:
Most of the 14 artists contributing to this project are living and working in the Ottawa-Gatineau region - and every artist has been paid!
The project was managed and layout done in-house by the HoP team in Ottawa
The book itself was produced locally in-house at Loudmouth Printhouse in Centretown
Only available through House of PainT and at select locally owned retailers
Created with the support of ACFO Ottawa’s Bilingual Ottawa program and Wallack’s Art Supplies
The profits from Colouring Book sales go directly to House of PainT, a not for profit festival with a mandate to celebrate and elevate hip hop in the nation’s capital. HoP relies on this community support to continue to operate through the COVID-19 pandemic
We hope you will get joy and relaxation out of using this book, and that you will gain a greater appreciation for the artists who draw on walls and other unconventional canvases for all of us to enjoy.
