information about featured artists and the producers of Never
Say Never
and the 6on12 Art Crawl:

his quest for the order of balance, Augustine Kofie harmonizes opposing and
contradictory dynamics by setting futuristic compositions against vintage
earth-toned palettes creating complex formations inspired by modern architecture
and formal typographical elements. His work has been exhibited internationally
in New York, California, Japan, The Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland. The
artist has been featured in Juxtapoz, The Huffington Post, LA Weekly, Project
Room and Studio Voice.

Gray’s paintings are multilayered and interconnected with imagery drawn from a
symbolic system of meaning and associations pertaining to the turmoil of the
human heart and the spectacled nature of contemporary existence.  The artist
received his MFA from The San Francisco Art Institute this year.  His work is
exhibited nationally and was included at the 2009 Scope Art Fair in

an effort to transition street art practices to the studio setting, London-based
artist HUSH creates a body of work that brings to light the essence of “action
painting” and “pure expressionism” while continuing his examination of the
vitality and transient nature of mark-making, tagging and graffiti. He has been
featured in several publications including Street Knowledge (Harper Collins) and
The Street Art Stencil Book (Laurence King Publishing), Huck magazine, Art
Monthly and London’s newspaper, and The Independent (where he was recognized in
their list of the “Top 20 Up and Coming Artists”).

Colla’s work is quickly gaining ground within the Bay Area street art scene.
 His politically focused imagery has examined everything from California’s
controversial Proposition 8 to the tragedy of surrounding the death of Oakland
native, Oscar Grant. His work was recently featured in Steve Rotman’s book, San
Francisco Street Art.

will be the first project partnering between THE ARTS FUND and White Walls
Gallery.  THE ARTS FUND ( commercializes
innovation in the high arts, pictures & social sciences. From offices in San
Francisco, California Arts Fund general partners work closely into practice.
