Yesterday, July 25th, marked “Silence the Violence” day throughout the nation. Our Howard Street neighbor, United Playaz, hosted a block wide event to spread the message of urban peace. United Playaz is a non-profit organization dedicated to violence prevention and youth leadership that works with San Francisco’s hardest to reach youth through street outreach, case management, in-school services, recreational activities, and support to incarcerated youth. They reached out to 1AM‘s art director, Roman, to create a mural to help share the motto, “Silence the Violence”.
An advocate, who spent 27 years in prison for killing a rival gang member, comments about people who get caught up in the violence, “They sold their dreams because their mindset wasn’t on their goals” (KQED). We’re glad that we have United Playaz, who is taking a stance, trying to make a difference and shaping the future of our youth.
An innovative and fresh art form is emerging that has collectors and fans asking for more. It is taking down walls, pushing boundaries beyond their limits, and proving that graffiti successfully coalesces with fine art. 1AM and curator, Mike Tyau, are pleased to present “The Composite Knowledge“, featuring works by Jaybo Monk from Berlin, Germany, Poesia and Sam Rodriguez from San Jose, CA. Immersed in the experimental, this exhibition aims to excite and surprise fans, artists, and collectors, alike.
Join us on July 20th from 7-10pm for the opening reception of “The Composite Knowledge“. The exhibit will run through August 18th. To preview the art, email info(at)1AMSF(dot)com.
Sam Rodriguez, aka Shorty Fatz, redesigned the California flag for The Bold Italic. In The Bold Italic’s thoughtfully curated shop, they are selling his design on shirts for $25. It also graces the cover of their newest magazine, Volume
3: SF by Design. I am totally digging the Phoenix and excited to see the works Rodriguez has in store for us in our next exhibit, “The Composite Knowledge“, which opens July 20th!
When Claudine, a Michael Bauer Top 100 restaurant, approached us to do a custom mural on their exterior wall, we knew this was a job for the zen master himself, Vogue TDK. Now, when you stroll down Claude Lane, you will not only see Mear One‘s Moon Maiden but Vogue’s dancing dahlias. His bold photorealistic style of painting embodies the vibrant energy of restaurants, boutiques, and galleries that make Claude Lane a downtown San Francisco destination.
Reyes MSK has been killing it. Not only did he just have an awesome exhibition, titled “Hold On Tightly” at Goorin Bros.’ Cassel Gallery, but it seems that his art can be found all over the streets of San Francisco and throughout the Nation (check out his latest production on Sycamore Street and his contribution to the Detroit Beautification project).
Last Friday, 1AM opened their newest show, “It’s a Long Way to the Top” . The exhibit showcases a unique variety of work in multiple mediums- spanning from 3D printed nylon sculpture to gold leafed sign imagery by Sean Barton and Michael Walsh. Fans and art collectors were fascinated by the craftsmanship and originality of their work.
For the past couple of days, we have been busy installing our newest exhibition, “It’s a Long Way to the Top“, a collection of 3D sculptures, found signs, gold lettering and installations.

1AM added graffiti swag to Lawrence Hall of Science‘s “See.Taste.Do” Gala. The gala was an event to raise money for science education in the US with the most famous skateboarder in the world, Tony Hawk. They also opened their newest exhibition “Tony Hawk | Rad Science“, an exploration of the physics behind gnarly skate tricks. So, when they asked us to create the event set design, we jumped
at the opportunity and asked how high.
The whole world is watching Facebook’s IPO day unfold. Offered at $38 at the opening bell, will they reach their estimated company valuation of $137 billion at day’s end? Unlike everyone else, we are not going to count up how many more millions of dollars these investors and employees are going to have, rather we are going to take a look back at where they were before they were millionaires.
