Vancouver’s public-art scene just got a little edgier with “Abundance Fenced” (pictured) by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas. The First Nations artist fuses Northwest Coast motifs with Japanese graphics, which he’s dubbed “Haida manga.” The sculpture, atop a retaining wall at the Knight Street and 33rd Avenue intersection, depicts orcas pursuing salmon and is inspired by the bountiful Fraser River salmon run of 2010.—Kristina Urquhart
