Escif, who showed at FIFTY24SF Gallery with San in the summer of 2011, has been down in Mexico City for All City Canvas, and of course, is painting some politically-charged works. This huge public piece was painting on the side of the famous Chihuahua building, the site of the TLATELOLCO Massacre of 1968, where over 300 students and protestors were murdered, 10 days before the Olympics, by the Army… this piece is a subtle nod to that event.
Kris Lewis is working out of Los Angels and he is painting some great pictures. He creates a juxtaposition of old and new that mesh in a very interesting way. His portraits have a depth to them that make you curious for the rest of the story.
