The exhibition will be on view through August 10, 2013 and is free and open to the public. After he coined the term Calligraffiti to describe his work in 2007, artist Niels ‘Shoe’ Meulman (Amsterdam, 1967) returns to San Francisco with a new phrase and eponymous exhibition: Unism (pronounced un-ism, not u-nism).

Bridging the gap between typography, calligraphy, graffiti, and fine art, the work of Dutch artist Niels Shoe Meulman (also known as 'Shoe') is effectively a new art form for the twenty-first century, a contemporary expression of writing and design by hand in a predominantly digital age. Calling it 'Calligraffiti,' Meulman launched his cutting-edge art movement in 2007 with a successful solo exhibition in Amsterdam, and he has continued his success with various international exhibitions and museum acquisitions of his images.
