These past two weeks, we've welcomed San Francisco's very own street artist, Fnnch into our classroom. His first visit included a presentation showcasing his work and talking about his inspiration and process. During his second visit, our kids got to add a new dimensional layer to personalize and collaborate with Fnnch's iconic honey bears.
"fnnch wants more art in more places. Public spaces are canvas upon which it is illegal to paint. By putting beautiful art on sidewalks, mailboxes and parks, fnnch forces people to grapple with the idea that they want something illegal to exist. Perhaps the art should stay, and there should be a system permitting artistic expression in these spaces."
"fnnch’s images are drawn from nature and include birds and bugs. He paints with multi-layered stencils, and he has developed several techniques that help him execute quickly and accurately. His work can be found in Alamo Square Park, Duboce Park, Hayes Valley green, Cole Valley green, and on sidewalks and mailboxes in the Lower Haight and Mission district.
