Word To Mother in the Tenderloin in San Francisco

In San Francisco for his solo gallery show that is running until December 7, the Street Artist/graffiti artist/fine artist named Word To Mother had some time to hit a truck or two and a roll down gate in the Tenderloin.

Photographer Brock Brake caught him catching a tag on a truck that collects cardboard even as he was giving the White Walls gallery truck some old-school inspired lettering. He’s been quoted as saying he was first impressed with SF’s graffiti scene when he visited with his family as a near-teen in 1996 – and work by Twist, Amaze, and Reminisce  captured his imagination then even though he hadn’t had much exposure to graffiti previously.

Raised in a town along the sea in England and currently hailing from London, WTM has a soft spot for those memories of that trip and you’ll see that the brightly colored nostalgia is back in his show California Coming Home now on view.

Thanks to Brock for sharing this personal collection of shots with BSA readers as we see how the art-school trained illustrator seized a sunny day and a box full of cans to play a little.

Brock Brake is a photographer in San Francisco and a regular contributor to BSA. Recently he and his partner created an independent educational platform, ArtlyFesf, to foster the love of art to youths in the bay area.

“Our priority is to engage imagination and curiosity in young minds while teaching and building the confidence and skills necessary to bring creative ideas into realization. We help young artists discover new materials and techniques so that they can express their ideas with freedom,” says Brake.
