Recap: ArtMRKT in San Francisco

Last week, May 16-19, the art fair ArtMRKT made its annual appearance in San Francisco, this time on a grander scale at the Fort Mason Center on the waterfront of the San Francisco Bay. With a slew of international exhibitors present, the fair offered an array of visual bounty. This year's offerings included sculpture, paintings and new media in a variety of styles, some from familiar faces whose work has been featured on our blog and magazine and others from newly discovered artists. We spotted psychedelic canvases from Mars-1 and Damon Soule, strangely kawaii ceramics by Eric van Straaten, Gabriel Barcia Colombo's miniature video projections inside jars, Scott Fraser's surreal take on vanitas still lifes, Joel Phillips' enormous charcoal portraits and much more. Check out our exclusive photos to see the highlights after the jump.
