Neighborhoods might be imaginary divisions based on street names, but they hold a real effect over our lives. If we stay in one neighborhood during our entire childhood, it ultimately shapes our world views. If we travel to a new one, we might come back with a shifted perspective. Out of all art forms, graffiti and street art especially emphasize place and space. For graffiti writers tagging trains in New York in the 1980s, the rush was knowing other neighborhoods would see your tag. You didn... [more]

Posted 4/25/14

We know the names—Haring, Fairey, KAWS, Banksy, Murakami. Any street art or contemporary art lover could probably pick out the work of these artists in a lineup. 1AM’s current show “Made in China” features work by Hong Kong-based graffiti artist Xeme and Sinic that plays with—and to an extent subverts—the branded identities of these artists’ oeuvre by replicating their pieces with a few choice modifications. In an interesting twist, the show juxtaposes... [more]

In a relatively small, white-walled room, 1AM Gallery legitimately pushes the meaning of the phrase ‘group show.’ When visitors enter the current exhibit, entitled A Major Minority, they encounter walls full of pieces. Rows and rows of artworks cover each wall and showcase the talent of more than 100 artists from more than 18 countries. Many sections include multiple pieces by the same person, giving viewers more than a small taste of each artist’s work. At first, the sheer amount of... [more]

Posted 4/7/14

When Tatyana Fazlalizadeh posted a wheatpaste portrait of herself with the words "Stop Telling Women to Smile," she wanted to make a statement. And in many ways, she succeeded. The artist posted her piece on a street in New York to tell street harassers that the cliché lines they yell at women need to stop. Instead of smiling and moving on, Fazlalizadeh chose to post a portrait of herself with her strong words; in the drawing she does not smile and instead keeps a locked jaw and defiant gaz... [more]

No has cambiado. Te sigo queriendo. Pensando en ti. When translated from the Spanish, these phrases offer small clues to what seems like a poignant love story—you haven’t changed. I still love you. I’m thinking of you. Yet you would not immediately glean these meanings from the canvases of Jet Martinez. Even when some of the titles come with a translation (like No Has Cambiado/You Haven’t Changed), the artist hides any other hint to the overarching narrative. His curren... [more]

A 20-something student currently residing in Philadelphia, Rushmore recently released an e-book entitled Viral Art, with the help of a Tri-Co Digital Humanities Research Fellowship.

Posted 11/28/13

On a drizzly evening in San Francisco, street art duo Herakut’s color palette fit right in with the city’s mood. Their subdued, muted colors come together in wispy lines and paint splatters to create whimsical, sometimes creepy characters. They seem to stare back at viewers with a life of their own. Hera and Akut’s unique aesthetic comes from these characters and the sometimes hopeful, oftentimes melancholic messages written in graceful cursive words near them. The German duo’... [more]

On a brisk night in San Francisco, a group of skateboarders laughs loudly outside of 1AM Gallery. Music floats from the inside, where people roam around and stand in circles with beers in hand. When you walk in, a huge wall of spray paint cans greet you. The Thursday night was dedicated to a pop-up print show featuring work by artists like RISK, Cope2 and Estria – the man behind this month-long series of events dedicated to spraycan and street art. Estria Miyashiro began making art in th... [more]

Posted 8/27/13

Growing up in the Bay area and living near San Francisco, artist Allison Torneros saw a fair share of street art. She quickly started making her own art at a young age and eventually got her work into a number of galleries. But she always wanted to create something on a larger surface than a canvas. Now, Torneros works both inside and outside creating murals with spray paint, a medium she remembers as “love at first spray.” Her ethereal, dream-like style now embellishes some Los Angeles walls, m...
