Graffiti // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Last week, S.F-based artist and exemplary friend to many, Kurt Dalen, was a victim of a hit and run accident in the Mission District of San Francisco. Kurt was a San Francisco Art Institute graduate who created figurative paintings, mixed media work, was a prolific graffiti writer and had been published in our February 2012 issue. Of all his unique characteristics, optimism was his greatest. He had the rare ability to look at the positive side of every situation and had a permanent smile that was deeply infectious. Everyone in the Bay Area and beyond will greatly miss your presence and charm. RIP Kurt Dalen.

We were lucky enough to spend the weekend at West Coast Craft here in San Francisco, we were also lucky enough to become familiar with San Francisco's very own Sean Newport. Newport creates these three-dimensional works by hand cutting geometric shapes and tiling them together to create peaks and valley's faced with electric colors and mesmerizing patterns. See an awesome collection of Newport's work after the jump.

André Karpov, with his swoony voice and epic shoulders, seems as though he stepped out of an Americana doc highlighting the brave broad range of the Mendocino coast children. The story begins: In the Pacific Northwest where the land meets the water, lived a cynical gull and an amiable otter.
