Seen Across the City: A Few Favorites

Zio Ziegler spotted in the Outer Sunset. Such a cool mix of color and pattern.

In San Francisco, you better hold on when you get on the bus. The announcement over the speakers tells you so and a kind stranger might warn you, too but if you don’t heed those warnings you’ll learn your lesson soon enough. When the bus goes lurching forward, it makes even the most talented skaters and gymnasts (who else has great balance?) judge their abilities. Basically, you might go flying forward into the dashboard or head-first into someone’s groceries.

But the magical part of riding public transportation here — at least from an LA native’s perspective — is how easily it can get you almost anywhere. So long as you hold on tight. In LA, I stumbled upon street art while driving. But after two years of not driving, I realize the value of finding public art while stepping off the bus or just walking.

Apologies for the long break (again). Here are some of my recent (and not-so-recent) favorites from around the city:

nycho_theworldisacanvas

Nychos in the Tenderloin (or TenderNob as the locals call it). The word ‘gnarly’ comes to mind.

eclair_theworldisacanvas

Clever Eclair Bandersnatch piece in the Mission.

One of many awesome pieces in Clarion Alley in the mission. Artist unknown (any leads?).

Awesome collaboration between Brett Flannigan, Zio Ziegler and Cannon Dill near downtown.
