I am thrilled to be a part of this show curated by my friend and very talented artist Matthew Craven. Just look at that line up below! Honored to be showing alongside so many amazing artists. If you are in the Baltimore, MD area this Saturday, Sept. 22nd, be sure and swing by. It is sure to be one incredible show. Scroll down for show info and preview of my piece.
Curated by Matthew Craven
September 22 – October 26
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 22, 7- 10pm
This exhibition brings together over 60 artists using a wide range of techniques and imagery within the field of drawing, painting, collage and sculpture to create a singular artistic vision. BLACK FOLIAGE takes its name from the contemporary psych rock band Olivia Tremor Control’s 1999 album Black Foliage: Animation Music Vol. One. Like the album, this exhibition combines pop and experimental aesthetics into something eccentric and cohesive.
The combined efforts from these artists will create something akin to a psychedelic zen garden.
*Black Foliage, originally took place on a much smaller scale at Chinatown Arcade, A DIY pop up art space and formerly a cell phone dispensary within the alley at 48 Bowery in New York City on July 22nd 2012.

941 Geary is pleased to present The City We Love, a large-scale group exhibition of works from artists living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area. The show is co-curated by Justin Giarla and local graffiti practitioner APEX, and features new work from artists actively engaged in San Francisco’s graffiti and street art culture. The opening reception is on Saturday, August 13, 2011 from 6-9 pm, and the exhibition is free and open to the public for viewing through September 3.
Justin and APEX came together to organize this exhibition, with the shared motivation of wanting to show what’s going on right here, right now. The resulting exhibition is a modest sampling of what’s happening in the streets and studios of San Francisco, including work by locals APEX, Casey Gray, Chad Hasegawa, Chor Boogie, David Ball, D Young V, EZRA, Hugh Leeman, John Felix Arnold, Luke Todd, NEON, Siloette, Teen Witch and Vogue. With backgrounds as diverse as their respective artistic styles, the collection of works featured by this group of artists are as entrenched in conversation with each other in the gallery space as they are in the streets. 941 Geary’s expansive space serves as an ideal backdrop to the work: bold, graphic, daring, surprising and as unique as the city itself.
From the curators:
“I just felt that it was time to focus on doing a show with just San Francisco artists, there’s a stronger community in San Francisco than people realize. The artists that we work with are here because they love it, they could easily make it in Los Angeles or New York, but they (just like us) choose to be here.” – Justin Giarla
“There are always lots of (San Francisco-based) artists that get picked up and taken out of the city, you know, to play on the international street art scene. But this is the place they call home, and just from a street art perspective – we’re getting some locals together to see just what’s happening here in our streets, right now. It just seemed like something we need to do.” -APEX
