Christopher De Leon started with classical training in the arts but didn’t emerge into the art scene until his skillful live painting demos at clubs. His passion and talent was soon recognized and he continues to exhibit in galleries around the Bay Area. Monty Guy, an up and coming artist in the last few years, has hit the scene with his remarkably realistic black and white portraits.Leon Loucheur is a self-taught artist whose work focuses on the relationship between natural and man-made worlds through the exploration of his own psychological biases.

J.S. Weis’ drawings touch upon an innately human sense of marvel at the beauty of nature. He encourages viewers to examine the health and vitality of nature in relationship with our own well-being. As new artists to 1AM Gallery, Daniel Valadez, Emily Moore, and Steve Javiel will be bringing their rich mixed media and portraiture work. Malik Girley is a rising talent known for his illustrative prowess.

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.

Street Art and Social Change

Here at 1AM we embrace the power that comes with making one’s mark in this world through creative means. For us, it is our First Amendment: the right of free speech, and we are passionate about exhibiting, teaching, painting, archiving, and sharing the street art  and graffiti movement while inspiring the masses. In a new weekly blog post, we will be sharing impressive ways that street art and graffiti are changing the world.

Art has always played a powerful role in history, and social movements have used its power in many ways. More recently, street art and graffiti have been playing particularly more prominent roles in current social and environmental justice movements. Street art and graffiti have served as a living archive, as a collective memory, as community representation, as building solidarity, in reclaiming public spaces, and in giving voice to the silenced. Thanks to modern technology and sharing capabilities, street art and graffiti have been increasingly well documented in recent movements like the current Climate Crisis protests in New York, Occupy, the Arab Spring, and in Ukraine, Greece, Palestine, and Syria. We can go back farther to the prolific use of graffiti and stenciling in the 2001 social movement in Argentina, and even farther back to the painting on the eastern side of the Berlin Wall before its destruction.
