Pobrecito used to be the most prolific graffiti artist in the Tenderloin, likely in the whole of SF. He’s faded away, perhaps he’s too busy with law school, or a new baby. The new champion is this artist, who makes something that looks like a mollusk, ore maybe a squid.
His work is everywhere, mostly written on metal using china markers.
Here’s and exception.
And another. This is clearly a person on a mission.

Really beautiful, brilliant design.
Royal Enfield motorcycle.
These were originally made in the UK, then production was moved to India.

There are always new stickers to be seen in the Tenderloin. Like an eternal fount of visual creativity.

Gotta love the Tenderloin. Imagine how boring the city would be if it was all like the Marina!
No, this is not the return of the revered graffiti artist Girafa. It’s an identifying mark on a Sonoma County wheelbarrow.
This awesome sculpture is 26 feet tall. It resides at the Wilson Winery in Healdsburg. The artist is Bryan Tedricks. Like a lot of good art these days, it was first exhibited at Burning Man.

This artist’s medium is china marker on metal. Recurring theme seems to be some kind of shell.
He or she is quite prolific, you can see his work around the Tenderloin and Civic Center.
One by stencil artist Eclair Bandersnatch.
Spotted this vintage button in the grass, in Civic Center, near the farmer’s market. It’s from the early 1970s and refers to Vice President Spiro T. Agnew. Somehow it became unstuck in time.

You hear a lot of things about Brooklyn. Like there was a movie, ‘Crooklyn’.
I once heard a woman talk about a situation in which she was confronted, someone talked to her in a very impolite way.
Instead of saying, ‘I don’t back down from this sort of thing’ or ‘I will not be disrespected’, she simply said, ‘Hey, I’m from Brookyln’. I think she punched the guy.
I’ve also heard people say, ‘Yo yo yo, Brooklyn, top o’ the food chain.’
When we were there, we didn’t see any crime or fighting or anything like that, just a very interesting place with lots of street art.

The world is full of romance.

I believe this is the work of the artist GATS.
