Yesterday evening, Friday, September 7, 2012, I attended an art opening at the hip clothing boutique and art gallery known as D-Structure.

I last wrote about D-Structure when the store hosted a trunk sale for Modify Watches.

Devon Chulick, the new President of the Lower Haight Merchant Association, and the co-owner of D-Structure, introduced me to the artists — Megan Wolfe, Steve Javiel and Daniel Valadez.

The artists spent over 12 hours painting the wall that their artwork is displayed on, which you can see in the photographs above. Since this is original artwork, perhaps Chulick will find buyers for the drywall before this show is complete, to avoid having to paint over the large format piece. I loved the wall painting, as it tied the work of the three artists together, even though their styles are distinct.

I was in a rush to get to another art gallery opening, so I only spent about 45 minutes at the show. I didn’t get to interview the artists or really study the artwork, sadly, so I am sorry I can’t write a full blog post about this show. I like the art, particularly that by Javiel. I invite you to visit the websites of the artists, where you can see better quality photographs of their work. The color quality of the photographs I shot of their work is likely to be far off, as the lighting was not ideal for making accurate representations. The lighting was ideal for creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for an art opening.
