The process of creating is a journey of exploration. An artist’s thoughts, habits, instincts, and history- these are the pixels that together create the portrait of a creative being. The artists themselves are a facilitating conduit; the elements beneath the conscious surface organize, interlace, and emerge from the cocoon of self. It is the Grand Magic, the emergent properties of style, substance, and self. “Emergent”, is the manifestation of this idea. It views art not as a linear thought, but as a tapestry of experience woven by a skilled hand.

Bask’s richly textural work imbue his “anti-iconic,” sometimes satirical worldview with an undercurrent of dark emotion. His canvases are the city’s flotsam and jetsam of industrial and consumer decay. In August he returned to Detroit for “Location, Location, Location” which showcases Bask’s blend of graffiti, punk and DIY styles into his latest exploration of Detroit’s unique textures and vast urban landscape.

Combining traditional and non-traditional techniques, Leon “Tes One” Bedore creates works of art that contrast nature with technology, grime with grace. Tes One’s conceptual paintings are assembled from the foundation up; color and cast blanket organic substrates. Incorporating movement within his work brings his energy and message to the viewer, emotions envelope and hold focus.

An occasional splash of color so enlivens the drab grays of any city neighborhood! Take a look around, there’s a pulsating universe of colors created by street artists for everyone to enjoy.

Street art delightfully impacts with color where architecture never imagined it to be. It has the interpretive vision to reface, re-energize, and reimagine a building. Artists versed in art history and the rhythms of the street are collaborating with warm colors, geometric patterns, grid inspired lines and abstraction.

“The environment and its colors are perceived, and the brain processes and judges what it perceives on an objective and subjective basis. Psychological influence, communication, information, and effects on the psyche are aspects of our perceptual judgment processes. Hence, the goals of color design in an architectural space are not relegated to decoration alone.” writes Frank H Mahnke, in his book Color, Environment and Human Response

Color is an international language understood by all, and street artists use it to perfection to express themselves with. Check out some 1AM murals that beautify our hometown of San Francisco. For more info, email murals@1amsf.com.
