SalesForce Transit Center Mural Project 2018

I was selected to create a mural across a 27’ long swath of window space that faces the Natoma Street Pedestrian Parkway. You can see from the reflection that the architecture surrounding this space was filled with pattern, line and color. I wanted to follow the systematic patterning around, but then infuse an organic, hand-drawn line over the top that would reflect the pulse of the area as well, being in the center of the Financial District and downtown area. The Center is now the Transbay HUB for the BART and Muni systems, as well as a beautiful outdoor open plaza on the top level, with restaurant and retail spaces in development.

This past summer, I was selected to create a mural for the new Transbay Terminal in SF (renamed). Using stencils, rolled paint and paint markers I completed this mural in 2 days and did worked as a live painter for the grand opening for the center. We were required to cover the entire window so as to block the construction behind. Initially in my proposal, I wanted to use no color and let the reflections on the glass be the color and motion as the reflection includes the bus bridge and other surrounding glass covered buildings, as well as the white lacy wrap that surrounds the entire upper facade of the the Center. Due to requirements of the project, I modified my proposal and used color stencil-work for the background and to create a foundation for me to free-hand draw on, which I did during the Live Painting session. The mural in total is 27’ long.

This mural is one of the 38 ground floor window murals at the SalesForce Transit Center in SF. This mural was created in in mid-August, and was selected by a committee of jurors from ArtSpan, the SF Art Commission and the Transit Center Planning Committee. The objective was to beautify what is empty storefront space by commissioning artists to complete these large public artworks. Each mural will each stay up until the retail space behind is leased. You can see my mural on the Natoma/2nd Streets along with pedestrian pathway. It is currently open to the public.

Tinker is a preschool on Clement Street in SF. I was invited as their Artist in Residence to create a mural for the entryway for their maker lab, also temporary but again large scale and visible along a busy corridor. This program includes creating a mural in this space and doing workshops with the children who attend, bringing artists directly into the classroom to share their creative process.

Part of the concept of this mural was to ask the viewer to think about art in its various contexts and how murals are considered in the fine art world.

To develop a method and process of working large and upright, I created a test piece on a number or hollow core doors, which span 15’. Most recently they were included in a group show titled “Walking the Line” at Gearbox Gallery in Oakland. Each door is 24”x80”x2”.
