Greg "Pnut" Galinsky has been a mainstay in San Francisco's underground art and fashion culture since the early 1990s, when he started the clothing label Junkies. A multi-talented artist and designer, Galinsky's keen sense of music-inspired style can be seen in numerous shops, galleries, magazines, and even Vans shoes.
Erik Otto practices his art across multiple disciplines and uses recycled paint and materials to produce work that is both expressive and conceptual. He has exhibited nationally in San Francisco, New York City, Los Angeles, and Portland, as well as internationally in Vancouver, Canada.
Brian Barneclo has adorned the walls of the Bay Area's restaurants and streets with his jazzy, colorful murals inspired by life in San Francisco -- NoPa, Puccini & Pinetti, 83 McAllister Street, the SF Bay Guardian Building, the Food Chain Mural @ Foods Co, Escape from New York Pizza (Redwood City), and the Santa Cruz Mural. In 2011 he will be painting a 24,000 square foot mural at 7th and Townsend Streets.
Ursula X Young is a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer whose urban fairy tale images have become a trademark of street culture in San Francisco and beyond. She finds inspiration in the organic yet urban landscape of the city and its surroundings, and is also highly influenced by her travels and the variety of beings that she encounters along the way.
TELOPA studied painting under scholarship at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. The son and father of artists, his elegant mannerist style of painting women brings a classic beauty to his simultaneously surreal subject matter.
Nome Edonna is a self-taught artist born in California and residing in San Francisco since 1999. Known for his smooth-sided biomorphs that combine the animal and the mechanical, his recent forays into oil painting and the glamour of the female form have been well-regarded.
