We met Lawrence a year and half ago. He came out with us one night because we shared a mutual friend. The evening was hazy… we hit up Gallery 1988, Poleng Lounge (or at least somewhere near there or was it Madrone?) and a couple of other places. He gave us a mini book that showcased his art. He told us about how his coffee mug made a stain on one of his papers and he started drawing around it and making the stain a focal point in his painting. Since that night, Lawrence, originally from Chicago, is a regular on the local San Francisco art scene. His work has been showcased in Gallery 1988, Lower Haters, Given, and of course, 1:AM gallery.
