By all measure this year’s ArtPadSF was another huge success. This is a very different and casual art fair; held at the Phoenix Hotel it was a very laid back way to stroll and shop for art. The San Francisco and Bay Area artists at the Tenderloin’s Gauntlet Gallery seem to pull no punches when it comes to making social and political statements with their art, very often with such bright and vivid palettes. I’m drawn right in by Chilean artist and illustrator Fab Ciraolo’s pop culture rendering of FridaRead More
SFMOMA at Crissy Field
Partnership with the National Park Service and Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, Yearlong Waterfront Display at Crissy Field Will Be Free to Public It’s safe to say a museum like SFMOMA doesn’t do anything small, quiet or diminutive. If they’re closing for three years for one incredible expansion project and a series of off-site programming, they will do it large, with a very visible presence. Beginning officially on May 22nd through May 26, 2014, SFMOMA will present a major outdoor exhibition of sculptor Mark di Suvero’s works near the GoldenRead More

video artist: Mark Gould   Instead of dissolves, I tried optical frame blending at the suggestion of someone on the Studio Artist users group forum. You get some interesting morph-like transitions which gives the piece a more organic feel. Thanks to Lucas. Images started as original photography, long exposures of lights and motion, then processed by the great paint synthesizer (and so much more,) Studio Artist by Synthetik, For installation works my vision is that the change rate of the image would be slowed down considerably.

You may have seen the familiar black, blue, red and white of D Young V’s art on the street or in a gallery, his graffiti style is intentional and finely tuned. D Young V, aka David Young has two art degrees and while his work takes on the street aesthetic he is a highly skilled artist with what he calls a “post-apocalyptic” message. Young uses street metaphor and appropriated images to investigate the hyper-speed of science and technology and the questions it imposes on issues of race and cultural identity.Read More
