The Art of Augustus ThompsonJuxtapoz // Thursday, 17 Feb 2011
We were recently introduced to Augustus Thompson's work while looking at magazines at the fantastic San Francisco surf store and art gallery, Mollusk. Thompson's faces have a life to them, a poetic style that harkens back to some of the classic eras of San Francisco art and literature. His work will be on display at FIFTY24SF opening March 11, 2011.
After meeting Augustus, we asked him to send us some paintings to show you here, because we think he is creating one of the more unique bodies of work here in San Francisco at the moment. Like we mentioned before, the work has a classic feel, more in line with the Beat era of SF art than some contemporaries. Good stuff, and we look forward to the development over the next few years.
