“Swell” of Change from 1AM’s Mural Team

After meeting Swell and hearing their creative ideas, 1AM artist Leon Loucheur created a unique mural that captured their essence and transformed their space.  If you have a space that needs a refresh, email murals@1amsf.com or call 888 589 0475 x 4 for more info.Swell2 Swell3 Swell1

“My experience with 1AM and Leon was fantastic. They listened to my input creatively and aesthetically, and gave me several options to choose from. It was a fascinating process to watch it go up as well, and Leon let me take time lapse photos of it, which was super cool. People walk into the space and respond to the mural right away (generally in a very positive fashion). 1AM and Leon worked around my schedule, and delivered on time and cost effectively. I would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to endeavor on such a journey in the creative arts.”

MarketBridge Enlivens Their Office Space With Some City Pride!

When MarketBridge reached out to us about about transforming their office walls, we sent out our mural experts to tackle the task. MarketBridge envisioned a simple and fun design that would embody life in San Francisco. What developed was the creation of a mural that highlights iconic San Francisco architecture through the use of simple shapes and color. A new energy fills the office space now and it leaves people with a sense of city pride.

Artist Spotlight: C215

C215 is one of those legendary street artists you want to keep on your radar. He’s always on the move creating new art. One day he’ll be painting in Paris and the next he’s transforming the streets of New Delhi. His stencil work spans the globe and captures the essence of the people who inhabit the streets. His main subjects consist of people who are often forgotten or rejected by society and capitalism.

C215’s stencils mostly come from his own photos, but he also collaborates with friends and other photographers for images. His stenciling styling can be seen in two forms. One taking on simplistic layering of two colors to evoke the straightforwardness of his message. The other bursting with color and consisting of 5 or more layers.

“Even though his technique is meticulously refined, C215’s work transcends the formal and seems to get to the core of compassion and belief in the human spirit. Encountering C215’s pieces on the street always makes me happy” Shepard Fairey.
