Austrian artist Nychos who recently finished a massive tiger mural in San Francisco (with Upper Playground and WallspaceSF), made his way down to Los Angeles and completed a fresh mural yesterday.
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.
To see more of ARYZ’s work and his highly anticipated first solo show in the United States, STYLE is THE LIMIT, please visit our Fifty24SF Gallery Wed.-Sun. 12-6PM Mon.-Tue. by Appointment. 218 Fillmore Street, San Francisco, CA 94117 http://www.fifty24sf.com.
