The side of the local dive bar, Pops in the Mission District of San Francisco just got hooked up with this impressive mural by Andrew Schoultz. Over the last week Schoultz has been spending everyday painting this building... sounds more appealing than sitting at a computer all day when the weather has been as freakishly nice as it has been in San Francisco. If you want to see it in person, head down to 24th and York St. The piece was made in conjunction with Converse and Juxtapoz.

Our friend and wonderful San Francisco-based photographer Travis Jensen is opening a solo exhibition entitled Barbary Coast Now on Thursday, May 9th at Gensler Art in San Francisco. Scouring the streets of San Francisco on a daily basis, Jensen doesn’t just photograph the unique, eclectic characters and environment of the city, he brings his subjects kicking and screaming to life for his legion of fans — exploring the real street life and personalities that few tourists get to see...

If you can't wait until summertime on the Golden Gate in San Francisco, Japanese artist Fujiko Nakaya has built one of her famous fog installations at the Exploratorium between Pier 15 and Pier 17. 800 high-pressure nozzles cover a 160-foot bridge in fog/mist that visitors can walk through. We suggest you make a nighttime visit, as the lights add a surreal atmosphere to the installation.

We've been keeping up with our January 2013 cover artist Aryz while he's in San Francisco for his Style Is The Limit exhibition at Fifty24SF. We had stopped by last week while he was setting up and cruised by again yesterday to get a few pictures of the finished exhibition. For those of you who are lucky enough to be in the bay area, the show opened on Friday, April 13th.

We have a few bits of information about Jacob A Pfeiffer that you should know. First, Jacob won a Milwaukee, WI skateboard contest "best trick" award in 1989 by ending his run with a magic trick. That is pretty good. Second, his father is the artist/teacher/activist who organized the Clay Stomp, an American-Soviet mural project. That is really good. And thirdly, Jacob is part of a great group show opening this Friday April 19th @ John Pence Gallery in San Francisco that you truly must see to believe.

You may remember that we traveled to Singapore with Mary Iverson and Chandran Gallery earlier this year, and Iverson is now back in the States with a new series of works at Shooting Gallery in San Francisco. In Tangle, the Seattle-area based artist features new works plus a gigantic 8' x 14' mural on canvas. Because we became huge fans of her work through the murals, its great to see her bring this back for the new show.

ARYZ will be opening a new solo show, Style Is The Limit, at FIFTY24SF Gallery in San Francisco next week, April 19, and we got a few teaser shots from the gallery of the Spanish artist's studio space. The January 2013 cover artist has much anticipation with this show, a lot of the attention focused on the rare occasion the young artist has shown in a gallery setting. More to come...

A great looking show at Wendi Norris in San Francisco, Amir H. Fallah’s “The Collected” draws inspiration from not only the subjects of Renaissance portrait and vanitas paintings, but also the economic models in which those works were produced. Commissioned portraits traditionally involve visual symbols indicating the power, influence, and sophistication of their subjects. In this first exhibition of this ongoing global project, portraits have been commissioned and thereby sold before the opening of this show, which is a business reality rooted in traditions from medieval ateliers and modern galleries alike.
