Antonio Torrez Solis
Solis creates his art by merging references from pop culture infused with stylistic inspiration from science fiction and fantasy folklores. The provocative nature of his art uses satirical imagery and wording to bring attention to various social issues: gentrification, income inequality and the changing landscape of San Francisco. Solis is active in the San Francisco art community and has facilitated workshops for youth programs . His stencils and wheatpasted art can be seen on the streets of the Mission District. His motto is: Art Does Not Need to Be Sanctioned.
