Kofie who we have featured extensively over the years, recently completed a new mural in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco entitled "Circulations in the Tenderloin." An original sign (Patek-Ecklon) appears at the top of the wall that was originally painted in the mid ‘40s. Kofie made the decision to leave the signage (good call) and work around it painting abstract geometric designs and shapes. You can see the mural in person at the corner of Larking and Polk if you find yourself in San Francisco.

David Marc Grant, a 3rd generation San Francisco native, is a very rare bird indeed. He paints candy colored dystopian landscapes.

Rachel Znerold is the most excellent tap-dancing, high-kicker you will see in the Mission District of San Francisco. This Colorado native came to the city by the bay via New Zealand and Mexico, painting, teaching, performing, and sewing her way in to the hearts and souls of the vibrant local art scene she now calls home. “I make art for you to meditate with and blow kisses to. I make art and it's winking at you right now and wants you to take it home with you.”
