ART I stepped inside SFMOMA the other day and was captivated by the murals painted in the atrium by Kerry James. The subject matter of his paintings, installations, and public projects is often drawn from African-American popular culture. His style and use of color reminds me a little of the works by Basquiat.

ART It’s always fun to see normal mundane objects extremely big or extremely small. There’s something really beautiful about that. I’d love to curl up on these sculptures. The artist should turn them into furniture!

RENE GRUAU

ART There is something extremely breathtaking about this drawing by, René Gruau. I think this one is my favorite of his pieces. It’s not only beautifully composed but also tells a story and radiates emotion. René Gruau, an elegant and aristocratic graphic artist used only pen and brush to capture the spirit of haute couture and the days of Parisian high fashion. He often illustrated advertisements for the world of fashion including clients like: Vogue, Dior, Harper’s Bazaar, Van Cleef and Arpels, and Marc Bohan.
