Welcome to the latest art to emerge from the contemporary visionaries as seen through the eyes of Platinum Cheese. 

The "Alphabet Show" @ White Walls Gallery

On May 10th, San Francisco art enthusiasts came in droves as White Walls Gallery presented "Alphabet Show: Every Letter Counts", a group exhibit celebrating the 26 essential building blocks of language. Featuring the works of sign painters, street artists, collagists and everyone in between, "Alphabet Show" features a diverse line-up of artists all of whom anointed their personal aesthetic and interpretation to their chosen letter. Ashley Fundora presented the letter F and U (get it?) in distressed lowercase fonts of gold leaf set against a stark black background. Meryl Pataky chose to work with "Y" in her glowing neon - a letter fitting for an artist who's work consistently probes our existence. The unconventional translation of the letter "W" was examined through Sergio Garcia's hyper-real sculptures. Two hands protrude from the wall while throwing up the "West Coast" sign to pay homage to the Golden State.

Overall, "Alphabet Show" is a wonderful display of the harmonious relationship between imagery and the written language. If you're in San Fran, make a point to stop by the check and check out the art in person. Until then, take a look at some opening night photos below courtesy of White Walls.
