Adios, Tamale! by Danyol Leon

Danyol Leon is a San Francisco-based, multidisciplinary, Latinx artist that has been active in the Bay Area arts community for over 16 years. He has hosted over 30 solo exhibitions at venues like SF AIDS Foundation’s Strut, The W Hotel, San Francisco, Counterpulse and Nickelodeon Studios; and has participated in extensive group shows at venues like SOMArts Cultural Center, 111 Minna, and The Center for Sex and Culture. His work was included in 1800 Tequila’s Essential Artist Series and he was named a featured artist by Redbull in 2007.

David Puck is a young independent traditional figurative painter, primarily working in spray paint and acrylic/oil, both in studio and as public murals. His work looks at depiction of the queer and fringe – playing with the relationship between abstraction and realism, through bold color and energetic mark-making – reflecting questions of individuality, normative culture and identity in the contemporary context.

David has been shown in and has murals in in Germany, Denmark, The UK, The Canary Islands, Nicaragua, Guatemala and USA.
