San Francisco-based artist Travis Collinson's process involves taking elements of photographs and sketches and reinterpreting them at a larger scale in his paintings. Influenced by classical painting and minimal abstraction, Collinson work plays with perspective and distortion in an effective and interesting way.

Nychos just completed a ferocious 6-story high tiger, with its bone structure exposed and body parts severed in San Francisco. This was the first time the Vienna-based artist has painted a mural in SF and he made sure it was loud and made a lasting impression. If you would like to go see it in person, head down to Geary St. between Jones and Taylor.

We are enjoying the work of San Francisco Bay Area native Erik Otto this morning. Otto has a wide array of work ranging from the street to intallations and canvases. 'Often improvising wit ha growing list of mediums and reclaimed materials, Otto's creates work that is both expressive and conceptual that finds resolution in capturing the moment where beauty meets chaos.'

Last days to see Greg Gossel's newest exhibition at White Walls in San Francisco: Head Over Heels, the latest solo show by MN-based artist Greg Gossel, featuring 12 new large scale works on canvas... each piece is built up with collage, and then layered with hundreds of hand-pulled screen prints directly onto the canvas: a new direction for Gossel’s previous approach to actually tearing posters & billboards off the street as he has done in the past.
