ArtMRKT Weekend Recap

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

While ArtPadSF was bustling in the Tenderloin, the Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco’s Design District neighborhood became an equally thriving nexus for contemporary art last weekend. Though many of the exhibiting galleries catered to viewers with a modernist sensibility, many low brow artists that have been featured on our site and some newfound favorites brought pop culture, humor and surrealism to the vast art fair. Scott Hove’s horned cake monsters, so ferocious yet so delicate, amused passersby snapping iPhone photos at Spoke Art’s booth. Meanwhile, the art collective Surface Merchants, comprised of Raymond Adrian, Daniel Fila and Alex Yanes, created an impressive 3d mural made up of found objects, bright colors and cartoon-inspired paintings. We puzzled at Chris Ritson’s dreamlike porcelain sculptures at Ever Gold Gallery, chatted with the Occupy Art Fairs performance artist (we’re still not sure what he was protesting) and looked closely at the subtlety of Travis Somerville’s wall drawing at Catherine Clark Gallery. Take a look at some of our favorite work from ArtMRKT.
