Mark Brand and Drew Young kicked off the first instalment of PULP, a biannual art exhibition benefiting A Better Life Foundation.

Some of Vancouver's most exciting artists were enlisted to blend archival imagery of Vancouver's maritime history with art inspired by men's adventure magazines and vintage pulp iconography.

The original works were auctioned off at the end of the instalment. The recouped costs were donated to A Better Life Foundation, which helps to feed, train and employ residents of the Downtown Eastside.
