Time lapse video of Aryz completing his mural in the Tenderloin District, San Francisco. The mural was jointly organized by Chris Shaher of WallspaceSF, Upper Playground and Fifty24SF Gallery. Great thanks to our friends at Smash House Collective who published the following video and kindly shared with us:
Upper Playground with Fifty24SF Gallery and Chris Shaher of WallspaceSF (who curates all the walls in San Francisco) came together for Barcelona artist and famed muralist, ARYZ to help him complete his mural in the city of San Francisco.
Through rain, wind and sun, ARYZ climbed into his lift each day for a full 10 day’s work to complete his giant mural Sunday. San Franciscans have been curiously keeping an eye on the work in progress, impressed by how the mural was taking shape through the week. Fans of Aryz who heard news of his next mural came to the Tenderloin district to better observe the master at his work. The mural standing approximately 7-8 stories tall features a young woman silently gazing over the city. Located at the corner of Polk Street and Eddy Street we hope the mural will be welcomed by the city and remain for a long time for all to enjoy.

World renown artist and muralist, ARYZ, made his way to San Francisco earlier this month to open his first solo show in the United States. STYLE IS THE LIMIT, at Fifty24SF Gallery opened on April 19th and the show will remain until May 31st. After the successful opening, ARYZ focused his attention to painting a large scale mural in SF. Upper Playground, Fifty24SF and WALLSPACE SF came together to organize this possibility and ARYZ began production on his latest mural in the Tenderloin District, this weekend. ARYZ prefers that we don’t post early work-in-progress photos of his murals for the first 3 days, so we will in the mean time, take a look at some of his murals finished in other cities around the world. More updates and sneak-peeks coming soon as we excitedly anticipate the finished mural this week!
