White Walls Gallery 835 Larkin Street San Francisco, CA 94109 415.931.1500 www.whitewallssf.com JUNE 2008 Sylvia Ji: A native of San Francisco currently residing in Southern California, her artwork encapsulates an alluring beauty that is both cutting edge and a nod to time-honored technique. Hauntingly beautiful images brimming with sexual provocation mix with a sense of consternation, hinting that all is not as well as it may initially appear. www.sylviaji.com JULY 2008 Michael Genovese: A self-taught artist, Genovese is heralded for his hand lettering, site specific work and public art approaches. He pushes both artist and observer out of their comfort zone by promoting urban expressionism in an almost explosive and in y our face approach, and incorporates the socio-political concerns of his neighbors while maintaining a uniquely personal point of view. www.genovesestudios.com Adam 5100: With an extensive knowledge of printmaking and savvy ability with spray paint, Adam 5100 developed these skills into a love and talent for painting using stencils. His stencils represent hundreds of hours of meticulous work and fine detail--the hallmark of his works. Based on influences of classic American photography, the freedom of modern and contemporary painting, and his fast moving imagination, Adam 5100's paintings have taken on a satirical look, challenging concepts of modernity, using spaces as a language to describe forgotten places, and light to evoke their story and context within our time. www.adam5100.com AUGUST 2008 Kill Pixie: A Sydney based street artist, currently much of his work is influenced by indigenous cultures ad informed by the folk art they create. "I am taking from the old and new and creating my own idiosyncratic characters and landscapes... It's a futuristic twist on older times. I also like to show in my own painting different styles of communication from one place to another, and create a freedom of dialogue between the characters." www.killpixie.net Cleon Peterson: An LA based graphic artist and one of the most sought after illustrators in the skateboard business designing logos and graphics. His most recent body of work focuses on mulit-panel installations of obscure and anxiety-ridden scenes of anonymous death and violence.
