The WRAP Project

The Downtown Vancouver BIA partnered with Emily Carr University of Art & Design to celebrate the creativity of students, highlight the unique character of each city block along Granville and help deter graffiti while adding to the aesthetic appeal of the street.


The result? The Wrap project.

Jocelyn Ko

Jocelyn Ko is an emerging artist, working in a variety of medias. She often uses vivid colours with neutral tones in her work and enjoys a loose, informal or impressionistic style.

Jocelyn chose Waterfront Station as the subject for the piece she created as part of the downtown Vancouver WRAP project. She loves the surrounding atmosphere, with its own feature building and the incredible sea view behind it. In order to give her artwork a unique look, Jocelyn used oil pastels on sand paper. Her main inspiration for the piece comes from her everyday experiences in Vancouver and the

moments spent walking by the Waterfront Station. Jocelyn studied at Emily Carr University of Art + Design and at the Kosheng Arts Studio. She has done design work for clients and her artwork can be found in collections including the Bell Center collection, Surrey, BC and in private collections in Surrey, BC.

Born in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, Jocelyn now lives in Surrey, BC. She is available to take on new projects, freelancing in the areas of illustration, animation, concept art, storyboarding and painting.
