Artist You Need To Know: Gabriela Horikawa

Artist Spotlight By October 13, 2016 Tags: , No Comments

Everything changed the moment Gabriela Horikawa took a break from her 9-5 as an interior designer in San Francisco and settled in the seaside town of Moneglia, Italy. With a population just shy of three thousand, the quaint town, and more precisely Gabriela’s grandfather’s 19th-century home, provided inspiration that would push her work to new heights.

Artist You Need to Know: Elaina Posey

Artist Spotlight By October 6, 2016 Tags: , , No Comments

When I first encountered Elaina Posey’s work, my thoughts about it were pretty straight forward: I liked it. The lukewarmness of that statement, however, would not have lead me here, writing about her work and telling you to PAY ATTENTION because, to be perfectly non-academic about it, she’s got it going on. So what changed and how did you and I…

Art in SF is Not Dead: Artist You Need to Know, Dilcia Giron

Artist Spotlight By September 15, 2016 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Artist You Need to Know: Ah-young Jeon

Artist Spotlight By August 11, 2016 Tags: , , , 2 Comments

You know Ah-Young Jeon’s work when you see it. It’s not subtle, and it is bright.  The LA-based artist creates pop-y and honest works that aim to represent her own state within on our modern, culture-obsessed society. Her ability to throw some of our unspoken, inner-thoughts into our face (see: IAMSUPERIOR), and subsequenting quell the sting with candy land coloring and playful patterning has earned…

Artist You Need to Know: James Zamora

Artist Spotlight By July 26, 2016 Tags: , , , No Comments

James Zamora’s work somehow demonstrates that which we all feel, but may never actually be able to express: life is not always simple. It’s detailed, layered, and full of unforeseen intricacies. As an artist, James possesses classic talent, an adept hand, and strong sense of self. Beyond that though, he reminds us just how complex simple things can be when you look close…
