The grimey streets of San Francisco’s Tenderloin District are always bustling with colorful action and have received a major visual upgrade by our January 2013 cover artist, Aryz. The Spanish artist spent 10 days on a lift painting this 7-story piece with rollers and it’s certainly turning heads. If you are in San Francisco and want to see it in person, head down to Eddy and Polk streets.

This past weekend Mark Mulroney opened his newest solo show "A Fertile Menace" at San Francisco's own Ever Gold Gallery and Juxtapoz was there to catch it. Mulroney expands his wonderful, twisted universe across an impressive range of new paintings, collages and sculptures in which childlike naiveté and vibrant comic elements become both counterpoints to and the vocabulary for scenes of sex, violence and decay...

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.

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 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.
