The Art by Farmboy from Alberta
"It takes a steady hand to carry a full cup."
Farmboy Fine Arts is a dynamic art team from Vancouver that creates a client specific artwork, even whole collections. The eleven years old company develops site-specific art for various environments: healthcare, retail, corporate and hospitality, including globally recognized brands such as Trump, Hyatt, Caesar's Palace, MGM, Starwood and Wynn. A year after Farmboy Fine Arts started, the company suffered a setback due the 9/11. Farmboy project rebounded when it was awarded a six-figure contract with luxury hotel chain W Hotels. Todd Towers, the founding owner and creative director, credits his upbringing on a ranch (the Towers family has owned the ranch in Alberta for 100 years) and his father for his own business drive and success. He has converted a warehouse space into a gallery and worked at random jobs while building his art-making career. Once the business picked up, he strategically relocated to Vancouver to be closer to international markets. Today, Farmboy licenses work by more than 150 photographers, artists and illustrators. The services offered include a complete range of art consulting, strategy, concept development and planning, to procurement, logistics and installation. Farmboy is now broadening its reach and negotiating a deal for a line of home décor products.
