Stickers and Stencils at Space Gallery, San Francisco

Its the mysterious artwork of the anonymous - on the sidewalks, lamp posts, bus stops...everywhere. It appears from the shadows and conveys messages political, satirical, ironic, whimsical - and above all temporary. And on June 22nd, it hits the gallery walls.

Join us by contributing to this unique and fun exhibit of unsung artworks.

Stencil Artists - RSVP to drop by and spray your designs directly onto the gallery walls in the days prior to the 22nd.

Sticker Artists - Send your works, as many as you can, with any information you wish to add to Space Gallery - 1141 Polk St, SF CA 94109 or drop them off in person at any time.

For more info or to RSVP contact: raym@spacegallerysf.com.

Lost Graffiti Dissertation FOUND!

After being lost in an old mail folder, I finally found Steve Paynter's
great dissertation "Subversion of Public Space." He gave me the paper
in 2005, so I'm glad that I can put it up for you all to enjoy. Go here to download the PDF file, read, and discuss.

Apologies to Steve for waiting so long to post this.
