Unraveling: Latest 1AM Production!

French street artist and graphic designer, Ratur, is continuing to showcase his dreamlike illustrations in San Francisco with his most recent work hitting a new billboard installation on the corner of Jack London Alley and Bryant St. Best known for his murals and design work throughout France, Ratur continues to entrance his audience with his paintings that play on the relationship between the digital world and street art.

Ratur’s billboard on Jack London, SF

Combined with his classic contrasting illustrative style and perceptual manipulation, Ratur’s new pieces utilizes an edgy contrast between reality and lines to connect with this unique space in the city. We’re excited to see how the neighborhood responds to this new aesthetic in the environment.

1AM Gallery invites you to “Inamorata” this February!

We have gotten asked a few times – “where are all the women? Why don’t you show the queens of the streets?” We think it is high-time to bring some female (and male) artists into the gallery for a group show inspired by the femme fatale, so we invited Amandalynn to serve as curator for our February exhibition “Inamorata” opening on Thursday, February 5th, 6:30-9:30pm. “Inamorata” by definition means ‘a woman with whom one is in love’, and is many times used in reference to a woman who inspires her lover’s creativity. We hope you’ll join us to see what this muse will inspire in our upcoming line-up of artists: Amandalynn, Vans the Omega, Hueman, Lady Mags, Jet Martinez, Melanie Alves, Helice Wen, Monty Guy, Joshua Lawyer, Annica Lydenberg and Houston Berry.

"Mental Block" by Emily Moore

“Mental Block” by Emily Moore

“Mental Block” by Emily Moore addresses the issue that artists, writers and creatives alike seem to encounter from time to time, “seemingly emerging from no where”.

"5 Owl, Ocean Beach" by Leon Loucheur

“5 Owl, Ocean Beach” by Leon Loucheur

In the words of the artist “‘5 Owl, Ocean Beach’ is an homage to the all-night, 5 owl bus-line that runs along Golden Gate Park, finally ending at Ocean Beach. I live in the Avenues, about a mile from the ocean. This piece was inspired by my practice of taking midnight walks to the beach to clear my head, stretch my legs, and for a ceremonial sip of salt water in the dark. Then I ride the bus back home.”

A Work-In-Progress by Daniel Valadez

A Work-In-Progress by Daniel Valadez

Leon Loucheur describes the process of creating as “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.”
