Juxtapoz // Thursday, February 14, 2013
This past weekend was crammed with things to do, but everyone in San Francisco seemed to make there way to the grand opening of White Walls and Shooting Galleries new home at 886 Geary. The 5,000 square foot creative space played host to an amazing group show by local artists Charmaine Olivia and Chad Hasegawa, as well as an installation a few paintings from a Juxtapoz favorite, Sickboy.

From yoga instructor to artist, San Francisco-based Charmaine Olivia has continued to create amazing works of art that are playful, fun, and full of poetic passion. After seeing her work on instagram, I was immediately drawn to it. Charmaine’s paintings of beautiful women fused with otherworldly aspects ensure that each one is truly unique and memorable.

We stopped into the opening of SF-based Charmaine Olivia's solo show, Ritual, at Shooting Gallery in San Francisco this past Saturday night. The exhibit features realist paintings mixed with fantasy, surrealistic imagery, surrounded by installation works.

San Francisco artist Charmaine Olivia never took an art class, didn't go to college, toyed with the idea of fleeing to Paris, and then moved to San Francisco to become a full-time artist. Olivia's paintings and illustrations capture dreamland girls, lustfully tattooed portrait style paintings and those seductive morning tangles.
