Bash Contemporary in San Francisco, CA is showcasing “Myth, Magic & Lore”, a group show about a contemporary perspective on mythological themes. being a recurrent theme in my work since childhood, that could not be less than exciting and also very comfortable.

“Myth, Magic & Lore” opens today at 6pm. Bash Contemporary is located at 210 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, CA. if you are in the area, go take a look at all the great pieces created by my fellow Copycat Violence artists and other featured talents like Hannah Yata, Sandra Yagi and David Van Gough.
