Raw Canvas

The hospitable staff at Raw Canvas challenges the concept of the starving artist with a menu of tapas and desserts that recharge brainpower for creative endeavours. Like a bust of Andy Warhol carved out of butter, Raw Canvas merges the worlds of art and cuisine with a painting pit where colourful brushstrokes flow freely and a dining area for munching on fine sausages and alpine cheeses. The restaurant-studio prides itself on its eco-friendly approach to both visual expression and bodily nourishment, stocking up on paints made on Granville Island and culinary ingredients culled from local family farms. Guests sip craft beers and complex wines as they marvel at Raw Canvas's gallery of original paintings by local artists, or admire the patron-conceived masterpieces that adorn the walls of the painting pit.
