San Francisco

Consisting of two 10×6’ and ten 6×6’ latex and spray paint on canvas paintings, 12 framed sketches on transparencies and a large-scale wall mural, Apex’s current exhibition, Reflected, is the next step in the artist’s evolving look into abstraction. With a focus on mirrored images, the exhibition explores the beauty of symmetry in nature and in design.

San Francisco-based artist Apex has quickly made a name for himself in the world of street art, in both the Bay Area and abroad. Having coined the term “Super Burner,” his pieces are most commonly huge, multilayered productions, packed with patterns and a vivid array of colors. The relationship his pieces have to the built environment creates moments of intersection, and opens up complex fields of color, as if they have somehow transcended into their own form of architecture. The work is most certainly its own form of typography – his pieces are careful explorations of abstract letterforms.
