Blaine Fontana

Long overdue is a post on another of my favourite artists, Blaine Fontana. His work is beautiful and mixes two of my favourite styles of art; Japaese prints and graffiti. I discovered his work at the same time as Samuel Flores in San Francisco's Upper Playground gallary: Fifty 24SF.

The print is also available as a Gelaskin for the geeks out there who like to customise and protect their laptops and iPhones.

Samuel Flores

Samuel Flores is a San Francisco based artist that often sells stuff through Upper Playground.

His work is very distinctive, often including characters with enlarged heads and hands. I like this image as the bridge reminds me of the bridge in the Tea Gardens in San Francisco. I was amazed by the city and hope we can go back soon.
