What’s Up in San Francisco. New From Aryz, Polka, Slow, Esk, and Gossel

Today we check in with some recent work in San Francisco, including new stuff from Aryz, David Polka, Ben Slow, Esk, and Greg Gossel.

We start off with the large mural of an apple cheeked farm girl by Aryz that went up over the course of a week in a tough part of the Tenderloin over a chain chicken shack. “But Aryz’s street art.. has already transformed the atmosphere of this high-traffic corner, and Aryz (pronounced “Areez”) is grateful, knowing that his gargantuan five-story farm girl — and her gargantuan bushel of apples — will look over the intersection for the foreseeable future.” Read more of Jonathan Curiel‘s great account in the San Francisco Weekly.

The stencilled collages are by Greg Gossel, who just finished a show with White Walls, and they are followed by images of a new mural by David Polka, Ben Slow, and Esk.

Special thanks to photographer and contributor Brock Brake for sharing these images with BSA readers.

Here is a time lapse video of Aryz completing his mural in the Tenderloin District of San Francisco. The mural was  jointly organized by Chris Shaher of WallspaceSF, Upper Playground and Fifty24SF Gallery. Our thanks to the people at Smash House Collective who published the following video because with it BSA readers can have an idea how much time and talent it takes to get such a piece up.
