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.

“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.

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.
