Abbvie joined us for a field trip out to Crissy Field where their large team creatively tackled a number of different activities before finally taking their cans to our canvas murals! While Abbvie chose a variety of phrases for the murals, “Honey Badger”, “The Legacy Begins” and “People Passion Possibilities” were a few of the standouts! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details about getting your team in on the action!

Last night’s opening of the Precita Eyes Urban Youth Arts Benefit, “Keep Our Eyes Open” was a huge success! We were thrilled with how many people came out to support the cause—and how many artists came out of the woodwork to donate pieces.

It’s not too late to contribute! “Keep Our Eyes Open” will be up until January 22nd, the gallery is open Wednesday – Saturday, 12:00PM-6:30PM. All proceeds from the show benefit Precita Eyes’ Urban Youth Arts program, in effort to help MEDA buy the 340 Precita Ave building and keep the program in it’s original location of almost 40 years.

Not all political street art or work that is loaded with social messaging is as evident as the work of Blu, Gaia, Banksy, or Ron English. Some work that still holds power in its imagery is more subtle. Nonetheless the meaning and messaging is there and can be deeply felt. One artist that has continued to produce such magnificent work around the world is Axel Void. Born in Miami, raised in Spain, and currently residing back in Miami, Void has the beautiful ability to seamlessly weave together classical and urban art. This recent piece, painted in the Dominican Republic, is of a local woman and her grandchild, and reads “Time” above (“Tiempo”). The mural was painted as part of the ArteSano Street Art Festival which took place in the city of Nagua, and is a part of Void’s ongoing Mediocre series, a tribute to daily life.
Making Guadalajara itself a giant public exhibition, the Rodearte festival brings together a roster of muralists to promote global peace. 123Klan brought along their Canadian friend Maple the squirrel, in celebration of their recent Canadian citizenship (congratulations!). Scien & Klor dedicated this iconic mural to the children of Oblatos, using their hybrid of graffiti and graphic design to finish the giant 65 foot wall in just 3 days.
We’re stoked to have 123Klan showing with us in April 2016, more details to come soon!
Heads up–Ratur and Sckaro’s “Catch Me If You Can” show closes December 19th, their insane surrealist oil paintings are not to be missed. This is your last chance to stop by the gallery, we’re open this Wednesday through Saturday, 12-6:30 PM. This duo’s high-octane work will blow you away!
Following the close of “Catch Me If You Can,” we have big things planned here at 1AM. Over the holidays we’ll be completely revamping our space, planning for a new and improved gallery in 2016… announcements and updates for the new year to come soon! Stay tuned.

The LevelMoney team visited 1AM to craft a personalized mural with their company’s name triumphantly placed across it. Refusing to stop there, they added iconic landmarks from San Francisco to their canvas as well! Contact us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your team-building workshop or event!
A team from Vendavo came by 1AM to test their graffiti writing abilities and turned out a decidedly awesome final product. While their inscription choice of “Goose Bumps” may sound a bit foreboding, their positive attitudes were certainly not. Shoot us an email at email@example.com to get your team or group involved!
