About the artists:
Shawnshawn: revolutionary art since 1993
This artist has 3 distinct styles: Architectural Abstraction, Metal Mayhem and Political Pop. In Architectural Abstraction he explores city skylines and patterns emerging in strict 30, 60 and 90 degrees angles. In Metal Mayhem, he explores abstract cityscapes via all metal tools in acrylic paint. In Political Pop, he reprocesses commercials and pop films into subversive themes that underlie the truth of the world at the deepest levels. This is Art of the Real. Website: www.shawnshawn.co

Sylvester Guard takes street art and the acid-washed intensity of the 90’s into a package that is as colorful as it is provocative. In a clever series of prints; Guard takes inspiration from superheroes by superimposing their masks on pug faces. He has displayed at Art Attacks SF! And the SF Live Worms Gallery, and continues to impress as he won a contest to place a mural on the corner of Haight & Fillmore. An accomplished muralist, Guard has collaborative and individual works on display in restaurants and on the streets of San Francisco.

John Chui was born in China, moved to Hong Kong and started doodling on textbooks, hanging out on the Colony's delightful tropical beaches, and listening to rock and roll for spiritual initiations. Upon moving to the USA, (he) worked (his) way through a succession of painting styles before developing a unique figurative expressionism with subject matter that reflected my own spiritual evolution. In the beginning of the digital revolution, (he) mastered many digital design tools, and then eventually received an international grand prize for 3-D graphics at the annual Seybold Convention. Now (he’s) just chasing the light between the four corners. I paint for no one and without a purpose… (paraphrased from http://www.twchui.com)
