Besides being far better at Fruit Ninja than us (821? That is good), Ferris Plock is a very talented fine artist based in San Francisco, California. His solo show at Shooting Gallery late last year was well-received, and Ferris just released this new print, "Hidden," through Tiny Showcase for a good cause.

We were recently introduced to Augustus Thompson's work while looking at magazines at the fantastic San Francisco surf store and art gallery, Mollusk. Thompson's faces have a life to them, a poetic style that harkens back to some of the classic eras of San Francisco art and literature. More images after the jump . . .

San Francisco's New Bohemia Signs has been creating elegant and simple hand-painted signage since 1993. New Bohemia offers a full range of services including full scale menus, architectural gilding, and gold leafing, all created by hand in their very tiny shop. I visit them often as a source of inspiration, most recently, the work being produced for a group show entitled Genuine Authentic at Peek Gallery on February 10th.

Her progressive and innovative works are an ushering in of new forms and methods of creating large-scale collage works with modern technology. Images after the jump . . .

For a long time, we have looked at Brion Nuda Rosch from a distance with admiration for some of his more simple, conceptual pieces. After seening Rosch's solo showing at Baer Ridgway in San Francisco in 2009, Rosch's work came alive, and nuances that are not so immediate on screen became so in person. More after the jump . . .

It takes a lot to be known to the world as Katya Bonnenfant, be a museum-level artist, and then switch up your moniker to The Old Boys’ Club. Well, it was just done, and for her show at Haines Gallery in San Francisco, Katya is now an Old Boy. More after the jump . . .

San Francisco-based Alexis Mackenzie creates meticulously abstract collages from a variety of found books. I stopped by Alexis's studio while she was preparing for a 2 person show opening this Saturday at Swarm Gallery in Oakland. Her most recent work is refreshingly different from previous collages.
