On a particularly gloomy February day in London, I first met Felipe Pantone at a well-loved legal wall in Shoreditch’s Brick Lane. Having followed his graffiti for many years, I was particularly excited to see him in action, to witness firsthand what tricks might be behind his optical illusions, the kind that only work if they’re perfect. Turns out there were none. He rendered his excruciatingly thin, straight lines almost too easily, stepping back every few minutes, closing one eye and turning his head to the side, a move that inexplicably helps him “see the piece better.”

We are proud to kick off the Fall season with a cover story on San Francisco-based fine artist Richard Colman. Richard's work has evolved and expanded so much since we last spoke to him in 2010, and his newest body of work continues to be an exploration on the way we as humans communicate and interact. We spent a few weeks with Richard in his studio in SF as well as around the city he calls home to catch a glimpse at the intricate details of the working artist's life.

If the arcade character Qbert were a graffiti writer, he would probably paint something that looks similar to this Pantone piece, sort of hypercolor, a little old school 2D style. New trackside collaboration with Sozy who painted the silhouette character.
