Project One Walls is an ongoing series of rotating murals from an eclectic array of artists. The inaugural exhibit curated by Brooke Waterhouse, gallery director of Project One Gallery, and Justin Giarla, founder & curator of San Francisco's White Walls Gallery will feature murals by Ben Eine, Casey Gray, Ricardo Richey (Apex), Jet Martinez, Rene Garcia Jr., Nick Flatt.
For Project One Walls, Rene Garcia, Jr. will re-imagine traditional wallpaper by reconstructing two or three color floral motifs as customized red and blue anaglyphs, which reveal erotic and sensual imagery when viewed through 3D glasses. London-based street artist Ben Eine has brightened walls all over San Francisco and throughout the world, with his easily recognizable stenciled letter forms. Casey Gray, works primarily with spray paint and hand drawn stencil techniques. He will be installing a vividly colorful mural depicting various vases and other vessels intended to serve as metaphors for bodies, representing the diversity of our outer appearance and the secrecy of that which is contained within, prompting a sense of introspection. Ricardo Richey, known to the graffiti world as Apex, has been a fixture within San Francisco's street art community, collaborating with graffiti and street art legends. Richey's contribution to Project One Walls will expand on his exploration of abstract letterforms while playing off the architecture of the gallery space, inviting viewers to feel as though they have stepped into the painting itself. Jet Martinez is a Mexican-born, San Francisco-based muralist and painter whose vibrant and detailed murals can be spotted in neighborhoods across the city. Drawing inspiration from Mexican folk arts his wall will depict a reinterpretation of Oaxacan embroidery patterns, with large floral patterning in bold colors filling the entirety of the space. Nick Flatt, a realist painter and sculptor notable for his provocative, hyper-realistic large-format portraits.
