Up On the Roof With RPES

Meet RPES, originally from the south of France and best known for his work in the PMB crew, he’s been making a name for himself all over Europe as well as 2 other continents. RPES fell in love with graffiti culture in the early 2000’s and with a strong urge for traveling and exploring, came to the Bay Area and never looked back. With nearly a decade of work under  his belt with the PMB crew, he was easily able to make a name for himself here in the states. ​His style has matured within the last 5 years as he has become more serious with his work and refined his graffiti style. We’re excited to have RPES be a part of our CMYK show opening, June 4th, 6:30-9:30pm. Check out our video from our roof having fun with RPES in anticipation for the show!

Limited Colors, Limitless Possibilities!

PEMEX is a hard name to overlook when it comes to consistent work in the realm of graffiti. He’s raised through the ranks over the years to become one of the most renowned graffiti artists putting up work throughout California and abroad. Born and raised in Los Angeles, PEMEX has been surrounded by street art and graffiti most of his life, opening up a gateway of inspiration for his own work. His pieces can be distinguished from the rest, with his fierce and unrelenting style which possesses aspects of humor, politics and history, making it all unique to him.

“CMYK” – A Color Tease

“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.”

Spring Refresh!

Spring is a time to refresh and rejuvenate before the ever-sunny days of summer. In particular it’s a season that evokes feelings of starting anew with spring-cleaning and a splash of color. At the gallery, we’re showing off our colors with a look-back at some of the talented artists we’ve worked with this year.

Announcing Our Next Show: CMYK

OfficialCMYKflyer

1AM Gallery is pleased to present our show for June, “CMYK”, showcasing brand new works by graffiti writers and artists RPES, PEMEX, and AMUSE126. The demand for colors in today’s art market is substantial, with shades ranging infinitely along the color wheel. CMYK aims to contrast this freedom of colors and experiment with simplified styles and techniques. CMYK was selected among the many color options because it is a universal color pallet. For this exhibit, each artist will create pieces where they use only a single color. This simplification will not only reflect the relationship each person has with that one color, but it will also showcase their unique artistic style. If anything, CMYK emphasizes that colors are not solely accessories for art, but fundamental building blocks to promote an artist’s message.
