Art Rapture is focused on bending the boundaries of the traditional Canadian landscape through art.  We showcase a blend of pop, urban, and contemporary art synonymous with the art movements experienced in London, Paris, Los Angeles, New York, Sao Paolo and Berlin.  Since 2016, we have successfully exhibited over 30 talented artists including Okuda San Miguel, Ola Volo, iHeart, Denial, Michelle Tanguay, Taka Sudo, Scott Sueme and Jon Shaw among many other exceptionally skilled artists.  We’ve placed over 200 works of art in the hands of exuberant collectors while supporting the fight against homelessness in our country.  Art Rapture is excited to carry the momentum forward and is committed to rolling out elaborate exhibitions to tantalize your senses for years to come.



Art Rapture is proud to present “It Was a Very Simple World” a solo exhibition for local Vancouver artist, Sean Jantzi.  

Self-taught painter Sean Jantzi uses carefully arranged geometric forms, clean lines and bold colours to convey a sense of joie de vivre in his work. Inspired by classic masters like Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, as well as established contemporaries including Todd James, Andy Dixon, Jose Roda and Cleon Peterson, Jantzi blends elements of expressionism, fauvism and cubism as a basis for his approach.

The artist is interested in reducing the subject matter to dominant shapes and colours in adherence to the principle ‘less is more’. Using an almost mathematical approach, the paintings are saturated with crisp edges and balanced geometry in order to achieve a delightfully clean result. The collage-like aesthetic is a result of the artist’s implementation of flat colours which suggest a childlike simplicity, and lends to the whimsical nature of the work.

Inspired by moments of great pleasure, whether imagined or real, simple or grandiose, idyllic settings serve as backdrops for moments of grand elation. Dealing with themes ranging from acts of artistic creation to romantic gestures, the work often seems to be the product of a delightful reverie where an air of innocence and wonder surrounds everything.

raised over $11750 since 2016



Since 2016, Art Rapture has donated over $11,750 from art sales to The Push For Change, a Canadian charity focused on eliminating youth homelessness.

On May 1, 2016, Joe Roberts, former homeless youth, embarked on a massive 17 month, 9000km journey while pushing  a shopping cart across Canada to raise awareness and dollars to end youth homelessness.

This national trek began on May 1, 2016 from St. John’s Newfoundland and ended on September 30, 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Throughout this journey, Joe engaged with Canada’s population by stopping at over 300 secondary schools and immersing his passion in over 200 community engagements.

The Art Rapture team encourages you to support The Push For Change by visiting their website (, becoming familiar with the challenges our nation faces with youth homelessness, and finding ways to help make a difference in our community.  You can check out Joe’s journey here:
