Founder of the Rabbit Eye Movement, NYCHOS spent Easter Sunday finishing his largest mural to date: The Easter Rabbit. The massive rabbit finished today stands tall and wide in downtown Oakland, on Webster St. across from the Lequivive Gallery. The wall was made possible with the support of Lequivive Gallery, Montana Cans and Upper Playground for Fifty24sf Gallery. Photos by Jy-Ah for Upper Playground.
This year’s Bicycle Day with participation and support of Fifty24SF Gallery takes place with renown Upper Playground artists Sam Flores, Mars-1, Alex Grey, Allyson Grey painting live on stage surrounded by music and crowds of supporters there to enjoy the event. Take a look at our photos from last night and if interested, there’s still time to attend the event tonight at The Regency Ballroom, San Francisco.
Rabbit Eye Movement‘s Nychos takes a second stab at his Oakland Rabbit expected to be finished just in time for Easter Sunday. After his successful opening of STREET ANATOMY at Fifty24SF Gallery, he jumped right back into action, trying to complete his largest mural to date. Organized by Fifty24SF Gallery, this mural was made possible with the support of Montana Cans x Lequivive Gallery and Upper Playground. Here are some updates from yesterday’s session:

San Francisco artist, Scott Kildall‘s newest project titled “Data Crystals” consists of a series of 3D-printed sculpture based off of open datasets available for the public use. Generally, we see data and statistics in forms of maps but Scott brings a new perspective to what data really looks like.
Each of these crystal images represent a certain aspect of San Francisco. The first image is based off of crime incidents that have occurred during a 3 month period in SF. The worst crimes are represented by larger crystals and less severe by smaller cubes.
The image below are locations of Civic Art in SF. All cubes are the same size with many vertically towards the City Hall and left representing the art commissions at the SF airport.
This last image is based on construction permits in SF, data from the “Development Pipeline” where the larger cubes represents larger building units and smaller cubes for small units.
Nychos goes big in Oakland with Lequivive x Montana Cans x Upper Playground for Fifty24sf Gallery. Still a work in progress as the gigantic Rabbit mural will mark his 3rd and largest mural to date since his return to San Francisco for his solo show, ‘Street Anatomy’, opening April 18th, 7pm at Fifty24SF Gallery, San Francisco.
MANSQUID was the first “X-Ray Drawing” Nychos ever attempted to do. He says ” I thought it would be funny to add bones since squids don’t have bones and I also enjoyed adding a human element to it as well.”
HUMAN EXPLOSION is based on his recent work, more exemplary of the new murals in SF. “There’s not much to say about the exploding human, except that it’s much easier show the entire human by using an exploded view and while doing this you might as well add some motion to make it look like an actual exploding human.”
On the next episode of HBO’s Vice series, Upper Playground artist, David Choe investigates the explosive growth of Colorado’s Marijuana industry. The Vice, season 2 – episode #6 will air this Friday 11PM on HBO. Check out the preview:
Italian artist BLU‘s remarkable sense of detail and dynamic illustrations have been lighting up some recent walls for us to admire at. His social commentary on the chaos and satirical views of the modern world are just too good to miss. Check out his murals below and be sure to visit his dope sketchbook/site.
Founder of the Rabbit Eye Movement, Nychos just finished another mural today, his second since his return to San Francisco. The mural titled, ‘Eat Your Heart Out’ was made possible by the generous support from Steve Johnson of Underground SF x Montana Cans for Fifty24SF Gallery.
Nychos will be opening his solo show, ‘Street Anatomy’ this coming Friday, April 18th, 7PM at Fifty24SF Gallery, San Francisco. Photo by Rabbit Eye Movement.
