Whenever I clean up my studio, I come across old work that I barely recognize. I made this 7 years ago, when I was first getting into making art and my first thought was, “What is this about?” But then when I think about what was going on in my life then, it makes more sense. #homedecor #collage #paper #handmadeart #graphicdesign #abstract #color #dsart #interiordesign #geometry #collage #fineart #distressed #dscolor #handmade #sfart #acrylic #art #sanfrancisco #handmade #abstractart #artcollector #blue #fishing #water #typography #markmaking #abstract

Big Announcement! We just heard back from our first film festival application and... Our film ‘Better Than You Doin You’ has been selected to screen in the Berlin Short Film Festival (in Berlin Germany)!!!!!! The festival will take place July 11-14 at the Babylon Cinema (I don’t know which date ours will show yet). I am so beyond excited to have this amazing opportunity to show our work to an international audience...and it kind of puts my fears to rest that we didn’t make this film for nothing. Hopefully many more announcements like this to come! #effingwerkitbebe #berlinshortfilmfestival

@kristian.kabuay is a leading authority for the propagation and instruction of the prePhilippine scripts. As a self-taught artist influenced by graffiti, abstract art, indigenous cultures, technology, and writing systems, he tirelessly advocates a reawakening of the indigenous spirit through decolonization. In his latest exploration, "Cement Series," he revisits the correlation between San Francisco's SOMA district and the streets of Manila. Inspired by his childhood vandalism and Philippine beaches, Kristian layers cement patch, spray paint, ink, his photography, and calligraphy to create an oasis of peace in chaos. Kristian is currently working on a creative documentary, "Writing of the Stinky Fish." . Mark your calendars for our Self-Portrait Show, “The Long Goodbye” at @spark.arts from July 1st-14th! The Opening Reception is July 4th, 6-9PM during @castroartwalk ! . . #sfart #sfartist #sanfranciscoart #sfartscene #sfartgallery #selfportraiture #sparkarts #journalbuildingartistresidency #castroartwalk #sfartistslife #sfartists #selfportraitproject #sanfranciscoartist #thelonggoodbye #philippineart #stinkyfish #graffitiart

Detail of a painting from the series Journey. You can view the entire series on my website (link in Bio). . While traveling in Europe in 2016, I decided to prepare for an upcoming workshop by making drawings as I traveled from city to city.  Over the course of a couple months many different styles came to light as I discovered the many diverse collections of art and cultures in each place I went.  Since it was Spring still and I was in Northern Europe the weather was not ideal, but it did provide me with a lot of time in and outside at cafe's.  This work has continued to this day so more to come. . . . . . . #watercolor #traveling #travelpainting #abstractpainting #artbymaw #markandrewwilson #Norway #Berlin #Brussels #Narbonne #Carcassonne #SanFrancisco #sfart #artcurator #artwatchers #artcollector #backpackingeurope

I always find giving cut flowers a bit sad, Because as soon as you give them they begin to wither and fade away. . On the other hand giving little spider plants from my mighty mother plant is joyful. After the babies are planted in their new homes they begin to grow and to clean the air and before long they too will produce new plants of their own. . Living installation, taking the natural and manmade from the canal is something that I'll be exploring at my Studio 4 residency @chisenhalestudios starting in July.

⠀ Even if you are doing your favorite job you can get yourself worked up and stop enjoying it as much. So here are some of my conclusions which I did as I don't want to corner myself: ⠀ - do not try to take on several tasks at the same time ⠀ - being slow in the beginning is not so bad - you have to be able to say ”NO” (oh😫 it is so difficult, but it is so important! ) - do not work under very short limits of time (duress) - participate only at events where you can also grow and learn in the same direction of your project - very important: remember to take a break, like reading books, caring for yourself and spending time with close ones So what I'm gonna do? I'll stop putting myself in a crazy productivity rush and will do only 1 important task per day. ⠀ How do you try to keep harmony in your life? . . . #sanfrancisco #california #sf #usa #modernart #artists #bayarea #colors #sfart #sanfranciscobayarea #beautiful #walk #travelsanfrancisco #instaartist #instaart #sflocal #contemporaryart #color #bayareaartist #instagrama #photooftheday #californiaart #sanfranciscobayarea #sanfranciscolife #travel #sanfranciscoart #sfartists #sfstreet #orange #tasty

COMING SOON! #chalkda Chalkda: Do You Know What I Mean When I Say All The Things That I Do Chalkda, engages the existential, and the ephemeral in Urban Expressionism. The artist, the phenomena, that emerged analogous with street art and the Beautiful Losers, and yet successfully avoided institutional exaltation and commodification. . . . . . . . . . . #streetartparis #mocalosangeles #metmuseum #sfartgallery #sanfranciscoart #laartshow2019 #contemporaryart #modernart #artnet #bluechipart #contemporarycurator #curator #artcurator #contemporaryartist #artdealers #onthewall #aestheticamagazine #artinamerica #deitchprojects #hauserwirth #nycgallery #nycart #newyorkart #nycartist #sfart #sfartscene #streetartgallery #hammermuseum #streetartnyc

Art Bash at SF MOMA is always the biggest art party of the year! With an incredible lineup of artists, performances, and immersive installations, it's impossible not to have a great time. We especially loved the new digital mural by JR "The Chronicles of San Francisco," and Suzanne Lacy's video installation on the 7th floor for "WE ARE HERE." If you haven't already seen these exceptional installations, we highly recommend you take the time to visit. The public debut for JR's "The Chronicles of San Francisco," is tonight. Stay tuned for more from the public debut! .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . Thank you to @sfmoma for always curating the most powerful exhibitions, and especially the most lively parties. Last night was one for the books! .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @jr @suzanne.lacy

Painting a portrait of my father, who passed away almost a month ago. I’m loving watching him emerge from the canvas. Makes me sad and happy at the same time.
