The shyest of tags

Written in chalk, spotted near Coffee Bar.

They’re gonna have to replace the entire sidewalk to get rid of the anti-yuppie graffiti outside 299 Valencia

SFist reports:

[T]he big “You’re Not Welcome Here” remains pretty well visible, post-power-wash, on the sidewalk.

We feel sad for the early buyers at this building at 14th and Valencia having to read that every time they walk out the front door. They’re just people like you and me! They’re welcome to purchase condos and artisan denim just as much as the next wealthy hipster!

Your complicated feelings about Valencia Street

36,000-square-foot ad hoc street art museum

Big event Saturday night only! SFist has the details:

We mentioned it last week, but now that the location and details of Endless Canvas’ 36,000-square-foot ad hoc street art museum have been revealed, the event will make a rad addition to your weekend plans. The massive, three-story warehouse with murals by over 80 west coast graffiti artists will throw open its doors tomorrow evening in Berkeley.

The Carbon Warehouse is located in the old Flint Ink building (1350 4th Street) in Berkeley. The event itself is free and open to all ages. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the event runs until they shut the whole thing down at Midnight.

Read on for more info and a video preview. (Swampy’s in on this; hopefully this event is even a fraction as good as that sick Swampy show last year, seen above.)

Also, here’s an important little notice from the event website:

ATTN WRITTERS: Thank you for not tagging the porta-potties, lights, gerenators, trucks or other rented equipment as Endless Canvas will be held liable and we want to be able to keep doing these events in the future.  Also, please don’t tag up the buildings across the street around the night of the opening so that the event doesn’t get shut down.  You know we’re pro-graffiti but please don’t side bust or blow up the spot.  THANK YOU!!!

Whatever it takes to get up a new mural on Osage behind the Mission Cultural Center.

UPDATE:  Apparently this is a real sport.  Original photo has been removed at photographer’s request.


‘Fuck off yuppies’ says new graffiti on 299 Valencia condo complex

I liked the artisan haircuts for all gag better.

Guerilla marketing campaign for Hamburger Helper hits the Mission

Shame on you, General Mills. Some poor property owner is going to have to clean that up.

Quasi pictorial dialogue on life+death v. text+image

I’m not sure where we are in this, but the conversation intrigues me. Partly because it illustrates two different ways to create image using text.

Found on the other side of Market Street, on the wall of the former Go Getter’s Market.

Fisherman’s Wharf’s World Famous Bushman further immortalized, in spray paint

Oh look, and he’s spray-painting something of his own too.
