Not that long ago, San Francisco had an abundance of pits looking similar to this photograph. Graffiti once strived in these pits. Now large condos exist in their place, plaguing the visual landscape of the City by the Bay. We miss the pits.

San Francisco based talent Henry Lewis seems to have his hands in everything from tattooing to painting and drawing. His epically dark and intricate signature style is hard to miss, especially when its looking right at you from the eyes of a strong, noble buffalo hand tattoo.

As we prepare a larger look at Ryan Travis Christian's work in the print magazine, the Chicago-based artist just opened a new solo exhibition, The Second Banana, at Guerrero Gallery in San Francisco. We think of Christian's work as a psychedelic trip animated by an artist in the 1930s. It just has that vintage feel to it. Maybe that is why we like it so much.

In 'No Regrets in Life', Joel Daniel Phillips has created seven-foot tall charcoal and graphite odes to the homeless community of San Francisco's Central Market district. 'Through larger than life-sized renderings of individuals from my street corner, "No Regrets in Life" examines the people I encounter on a regular basis. Overlooked and unidentified, the renderings are an attempt to play with our voyeuristic tendencies toward the indigence surrounding us, hiding in plain sight...'

After our partnership with Outside Lands over the summer Juxtapoz was lucky enough to be invited to partner with Treasure Island Music Festival. After a light breakfast we headed to Civic Center to take the free shuttle, yes free, out to the island, a quick 10 - 15 minute ride across the Bay Bridge to enter the festival and see the likes of Public Enemy, The xx, Grimes, Ty Segall, Matthew Dear, Youth Lagoon, M83, and others.

Tonight, Ever Gold Gallery in San Francisco will showcase for the second and last time the work of conceptual artist, Guy Overfelt. The show entitled #BLACKLIGHT is somewhat a mystery and in the words of the gallery, “You’ll never see Guy Overfelt’s face in San Francisco nor his work after this exhibition.” It may be worth a peek, you just might be in for a surprise.
