Alec Huxley is a painter based in San Francisco. His work, primarily representational, is filled with contrast. Simultaneously stark and colorful, it focuses on landscapes of the American West Coast.

She believes that sharing the creative process with others is the key to an inspired life. Amandalynn has a Bachelor's of Fine Art from the San Francisco Academy of Art.
Chris Stokes uses mixed media to interlace and layer unassuming combinations of color, lines and found materials. Elements from literature, cultural symbols, and architecture meld together to become art that equals more than the sum of its parts. Born in Philadelphia, the long-time San Francisco resident’s recent work is a reflection of his travels, his ever-evolving perspective of the world, and an interest in science fiction. The resulting pieces represent new landscapes and structures that seem barely possible.
Daniel Chen is an oil painter based in San Francisco. His body of work explores the way technology has affected our visual language and shapes the way we think and remember the past. He holds a BFA from Academy of Art University and an MFA from California College of the Arts.
Emily Fromm is a visual artist and muralist in San Francisco, California. Her style draws inspiration from traditional sign painting techniques, cartoons, and comic books to create a nostalgic yet contemporary lens with which to view iconic city locales. The scenes in her paintings highlight treasured city businesses along with public institutions and people in the community who inhabit and shape our urban neighborhoods. Her paintings have, thus far, featured locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York, Montréal, and London.
Eric Johnston uses academic realism, traditional surrealism, and abstract approaches to contemporary topics to create paintings that are direct manifestations of the way humans perceive nature and the environment in which they exist. The driving force behind his creativity is his search for meaning in our existence by connecting with the world through symbolic recognition. Drawing inspiration from his life, dreams, desires, and the parallel reality encompassing him, he questions our innate aspirations concerning personal happiness. Johnston received training in Fine Arts from the Academy of Art in San Francisco, and resides in Northern California.
Evan Venegas uses imagery that is loosely based on the urban, industrial landscape that surrounds him. His creative process is rooted in the recognizable world but expressed by abstract shapes and vibrant colors. He seeks to create an experience that inspires a change in perception for the viewer.
Venegas began painting with oils at a young age, and started developing his technique, of realistic rendering of imaginary objects, in his early teens. Born and raised in Queens, New York, he began his art education at Parsons School of Design, then moved to San Francisco to complete a BFA in Painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. He returned to New York in 2000.
Heather Robinson has an indiscriminate love of pattern and color, adores the handmade and the accidental, and possesses a great fondness for the imperfect. Beginning her art practice in collage and mixed media, she transitioned to painting to have more control over materials. Robinson studied environmental design and architecture at Texas A&M University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which instilled a passion for structure and a fascination with how people decorate their spaces. Her work focuses on the interplay of order and spontaneity. She has worked in San Francisco since 2007.
Leon Loucheur is a San Francisco-based artist who specializes in acrylic painting. His compositions are visual allegories of the relationships between the natural and human-made worlds, populated by creatures of the wild in various phases of remix. Without formal training, Leon has nurtured a singular voice from years of exploration and life experience, and the result is a style that possesses authenticity and conviction, humor and heart. Loucheur lives and works in San Francisco.
Martin Hsu is a Taiwan-born artist based in San Francisco. He strives to create New Traditional Art by fusing Western narrative with Eastern sensibility.

Monty Guy is a painter and illustrator whose earliest memories are drawing in the entryway of his parents' home in Southern California. A true artist, he is constantly compelled to create and hone his craft, seeing beauty and inspiration in everything around him. He appreciates timelessness in his subject matter as well as in his often-used black and white color palette.
Paul Lewin has found joy in the process of creating art since he was a child in Kingston, Jamaica. His paintings, which he likens to the ancient art of storytelling, are inspired by nature, science, ancestors, and dreams. The resulting visions include trees, animals, insects and foliage intertwining with human figures to represent the transfer of energy and interconnectedness to the Earth. The figures symbolize Lewin’s ancient, future, and inter-dimensional ancestors from Africa, the Caribbean, and the diaspora. He is currently based in Miami, Florida.
St. Monci meanders through the purely gestural and technical applications of abstraction, utilizing his training in street and studio art to create compositions that address perception and matter. He explores the most fundamental elements of art and design, in color and form, and how they relate to each other and the viewer. Dynamic matrices of architectural and graphic elements evoke a visceral reaction to otherwise static elements of flat shapes. St. Monci was born in the United States and raised in Puerto Rico. He returned to earn his BFA and MA at New York State University Oswego and is now based in El Paso TX.
