The First Amendment Gallery in Downtown San Francisco presents “Back and Forth”, which exhibits the resulting chemistry of mind waves between artists Super A and Collin van der Sluijs. The pairing yields a creative process just as natural as the influence of the moon on the tidal currents of the sea. More images and information after the jump!
EDJINN recently completed a killer new wall for Contorno Urbano. Edjinn lives and works in Barcelona. He studied design in the Art School of Winchester and graphic design in the Elisava School. Illustrator and graphic designer, he’s famous for his style both naïve and satirical, as for his versatility: urban art, graffiti, illustrations, edition of the “Fine Arts” magazine, commercial works, collages, etc.
For his intervention in the April “12+1”, he told us what was the idea: “I want to contrast old people with new technologies, social networks and the new ways to interact that use young people, and the disconnection it might be for older people”. The artist also insists in that: what is important to him is that his works can stay somehow ambiguous, in order that everyone can read them their own way.
When it comes to lettering, calligraphy, typography or typeface design, only a very few do it like Ricardo “Itsaliving” Gonzales does it. He recently had a chance to connect with the good people at Krink Markers in their headquarter studio in NYC for a little fun session with some of their finest tools.
Ricardo has humble beginnings studying at the Mohawk Collage in Canada and working for as a screen printer in Ottawa for a couple of years where he fell in love with the medium of calligraphy. That passion grew to something quite serious almost an obsession. On that got him to work with some of the most influential brands and businesses on the face of the earth.
Our friends over at Athen B. Gallery, just started a series of 4 walls with the city of San Leandro, CA. First up is Oakland Artist Kelly Ording. The mural is compiled of 5 different reds that break apart the bright blue background. The mural itself brings a lot of life into a neighborhood that lacks color.
Located on Arnerich Automotive Service who has been living and working on the same street he was raised on. We were excited to work with Kelly on bring some life into the local business such as Arnerich Automotive Service located at 14995 Farnsworth St. San Leandro, CA 94579.

BustArt is a Swiss street artist. His technical focus lays on freehand work sometimes supported by stencils. As BustArt started his artistic career, there were no commercial aspects of the art as it is today. Likewise, urban art did happen exclusively on the streets while contract works as well as exhibitions of this art form were largely untapped. Since the beginning, the prior motivation was to paint for the people. Sharing inspiration with everybody is the main aim of his art. BustArt will always be faithful to this maxim.
