THE CITY CANVAS
In that intense summer of 2020, artists took to the boarded up streets of cities across the world. Urban spaces became temporary outdoor street art galleries - the murals brought much needed color to that moment.
There were many organizations that started to help build those bridges - between artists and retail spaces to facilitate making the murals happen, and helping artists through a time that was financially insecure for many of us.
I painted this mural on the corner of Duboce & Valencia in San Francisco as part of a project called Project Artivism
It was Paint the Void that was pivotal in the creation of many more murals across SF. If you saw a mural on a boarded up window during that time chances are Paint the Void was behind it.
I made this piece in June of 2020 & it only stayed up about a month, but luckily the panels were saved and after a bit of restoration - they are now a part of this unique exhibit that will be on view for just 2 weekends.
The murals have been installed in the amazing huge historic renovated waterfront warehouse space that is Pier 70
