Stunning street art in San Francisco

His name is Apex, and he painted this incredible mural in San Francisco. He's a street artist, a painter, and a sculptor.

Hubby and I were driving south on Masonic in the rain today when this breath of energy, a piece of public art comprised of layers and layers of spray-painted color, caught my eye as we approached the intersection at Haight.

We doubled back, found a parking spot, and there in the rain and wet I took these photos.

His signature reads @Apexer. It's his Twitter handle.

I'm actually glad I saw Apex's work for the first time on a cloudy day. The drab greyness that hung over the city, more quiet than usual because it was Christmas day, only made his painting even more vivid.

Do you love public art? I do. I think it's great when it's out in the open for everyone to enjoy.  We're very fortunate that SF is a city where art in all forms seems to thrive and you can literally stumble upon it when you least expect it.

If you're ever in the neighborhood you should swing by and enjoy this mural, visit his website, and read more about Apex in this SF Weekly blog post. In the post it's mentioned that the painting isn't a permanent work. The store that commissioned it will update the mural from time to time. If you look at the street view of the intersection on the link below you'll see it used to be a completely different painting. So if you want to see this one, don't wait too long.
