Mexican artist Curiot is currently in in the city and just finished working on a new mural now on display downtown. The wall was curated by Upper Playground and Fifty24SF Gallery. The Curiot exhibit at FFDG, “Down the Rabbit Hole with Neon Lights,” runs through April 18th. The gallery says of Curio and his work, Curiot’s colorful paintings, featuring mythical half-animal half-human figures and scenes, which allude to Mexican traditions (geometric designs, Day of the Dead styles, myths and legends, tribal elements), are rendered in precise detail with a mixture of highly vibrant yet complementaryRead More
by Alex Mak Broke-Ass Stuart (republished with permission) This is not an article about celebrity painters like Andy Warhol or Salvador Dalí, this is an article about celebrities who paint, like Johnny Depp and and Lucy Liu.  The difference between the two is not as obvious as one might think.  I sat down with art critic and San Francisco Art Institute Professor Mark Van Proyen (MVP), this time to talk about art and celebrity, and to critique the artwork of some of Hollywood’s biggest movie stars.  At first, Professor MVP was leery ofRead More

from Americans For The Arts: What is “net neutrality?” It’s the idea that your Internet service provider (ISP), like Verizon or Comcast, doesn’t discriminate when it comes to Internet traffic-meaning throttling or blocking legal content that you want to access or share. A company also can’t pay your ISP to speed up service for certain sites. A lot is at stake. At the heart of the issue is how to ensure an open Internet that preserves everyone’s ability to communicate freely online to learn, engage, express themselves, innovate, and beRead More
Using vector illustration applications to draw has always felt a bit like there’s math going on under my pen; sometimes following my instructions, sometimes leading me in unexpected directions. In this way my mathematic collaborator creates those happy surprises that are a constant source of joy. I also have learned when to know it’s finished! My work is often driven by the speed in which code can generate beautiful mathematical representations for rendering at any resolution. One iteration after another, I can pick one that has the composition I’m lookingRead More
