Michelle Fleck
is a painter living in San Francisco. Her work focuses on the relationship between man and the landscape, and the marks we leave on it. Influenced by everyday life in the city, her paintings serve as snapshots of an ongoing intersection of the natural and man-made world. She strives to make work that has a sense of relevancy in a culture driven by a need for change and newness.

Matt Gonzalez
received his B.A. at Columbia University and J.D. from Stanford Law School. After a decade as a deputy public defender in San Francisco Gonzalez served a term on the 11-member Board of Supervisors. He thereafter co-founded a civil rights law firm Gonzalez & Leigh LLP and was Ralph Nader's running mate in 2008. In early 2011 he became the Chief Attorney in the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office. Since 2006 he has exhibited artworks in a variety of Bay Area art venues including Guerrero Gallery, Adobe Books, Lincart Gallery, Soap Gallery, Triple Base Gallery, and 111 Minna Street Gallery.

Alec Huxley
(B. 1980) is a painter, photographer and graphic designer living in San Francisco, California. Filled with contrast, his work is primarily figurative. Bleak and colorful, it focuses on urban and desert landscapes of the American West Coast. Cinematic-like scenes serve as stylized historical records of place, time and architecture as well as settings for surreal narratives. A self taught painter, his background includes studies in business, graphic design, photography and a career in printing before committing to fine art full-time in 2009.

Dave Kinsey
was born in Pittsburgh in 1971, attending the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and the Art Institute of Atlanta before moving to California in 1994 to pursue a career as a designer and fine artist. Selected exhibitions include URBIS Museum in Manchester, UK, NEXT Chicago, Joshua Liner Gallery in NY, ALICE Gallery and Art Brussels in Belgium. His work has been featured in multiple local and international print and online publications from The New York Times, LA Weekly and Washington Post to Anthem Magazine.

Mark Mulroney
loves his wife and is working earnestly on becoming a better golfer. He lives in the forest and chops wood when it is needed. He occasionally throws walnuts at squirrels but is pretty sure they don't mind.

Ferris Plock
is a San Francisco-based artist who lives within the city with his wife, Kelly Tunstall (Plock's partner in the artistic duo KeFe), and son Brixton. Plock brings a dedicated focus to his work that is paired with a wild sense of originality. Through a variety of mediums including acrylic, watercolor, spray paint, India ink, gold or silver leaf, and collage Plock creates highly detailed works, often character-based paintings on wood panel, that combine contemporary pop culture with the aesthetic of Japanese ukiyo-e woodblocks. Widely-accomplished and with a diverse range of artistic interests, Plock has created illustrations for many high-profile clients, has been involved in solo and group exhibitions both nationally and abroad, and also served as the 2010 SF Recology Artist in Resident.

Albert Reyes
has been known to spit art on his hands and knees with a mouth full of beer in the middle of the street. He has also shown in a gallery along with a painting by Picasso. These same strange dualities and juxtapositions are highly prevalent in his work, which tackles both conceptual and graffiti art. Recognized for his ubiquitous "GIVE" tag, Albert has a distinctive artistic approach inspired not only by street art, comic books, and American pop culture; but also by contemporary and classical "high art".

Max Rippon
(Ripo) was born and raised in NYC. After graduating from art school in the United States in 2005 he quickly left the country for Barcelona, Spain where he has since dedicated himself to painting and creating artwork both in the streets and the studio. In recent years his work has become primarily text-based, exploring and communicating through typography, calligraphy and other hand-painted elements. His works often offer more questions than answers, always with a sense of sarcasm and humor laying beneath the surface. His influences are rooted in his upbringing in NYC, his current life.

Bryan Schnelle
lives and works in Los Angeles. His work explores themes of provoking political and social thought, as well as intricate hand drawn patterns. His work has been shown in galleries in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Mike Shine
is an artist who lives and paints in Bolinas, California. With no formal art school training, his background instead includes fine woodworking, furniture and cabinet making: skills that often appear in his artwork. He typically creates using driftwood and found objects, and many of his works invite (and even require) the observer to handle and operate them, something he considers contrary to the sterile "please don't touch" world of museums and galleries.

Scott Teplin
lives and works in New York City. His work has been included in exhibitions at P.S. 1 "Greater New York," 2000, The Drawing Center "Winter Selections," 2001, The Bronx Museum "Artists in the Marketplace," 2001 and the Brooklyn Museum of Art, "Artists Books," 2000. His work is included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, MoMA, San Francisco, The Smithsonian Institution, The Walker Art Center, Harvard University, Yale University, The New York Public Library, The Progressive Insurance Co., as well as numerous other museum and public collections.

Paul Urich
is an established San Francisco artist who's work has been featured in the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Juice Design, and most recently at Receiver and the Elenor Harwood Gallery. Urich's subject matter explores the unknown realities that are a part of human existence - death, family, introspection, vastness of space, and the energy the human spirit.

Xiau-Fong Wee
is really three different artists stuck in one body. Her work branches into three different categories each with a distinct style that covers different ideas and subjects. The images are an alternate dimension, a new world that tells a story, hints at an underlying message, and provides a small adventure for people looking in from the outside. She finds inspiration in the bizarre, and strange, as well as the beauty of what the urban environment and nature has to offer; the challenge is to connect what is unknown with what is familiar and create an altered view of aesthetics... After acquiring her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the Academy of Art University, Xiau-Fong continues to live and work in San Francisco. She works in oil and acrylic paints, as well as charcoal, for her three series 'Concrete,' 'Concept,' and 'Crinkle,' respectively.

Taylor White
survived on her astounding drawing skills, eventually receiving her BFA in Illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2007. Shortly thereafter she fled her home country and, fragile and starving, sold herself the only way she knew how.

Alex Ziv
Recent SFAI grad Alex Ziv's new work is a blurred mix of realist pointillism mixed with cartoonish gore and pop-culture reference, a style definitely all his own.

Zoltron
Bay Area street artist/ stencil creator/ poster designer and sticker producer.
