Juxtapoz contributor, Joshua Blank, headed out to Ocean Beach in San Francisco to visit the studio of fine artist Augustus Thompson. Next week, Friday, March 11, Augustus opens a solo show at FIFTY24SF Gallery, One Man.

One Man will include portraits from Thompson's on-going series, as well as new larger-scaled interior landscapes. As noted by the gallery, "In the larger works, Thompson uses color and force of line to articulate the inner howling of his human subjects; each painting an isolated, universal beat. Seen together, the portraits and landscapes form a cinematic rush through the back alley of a young man’s life. Thompson writes, 'Whatever happens gets packed into my paintings. Black culture and rhythm. Love. Being tired and poor while being privileged and white. Interiors by Vuillard. I can paint everything in a face.'”
