Creating the Fisherman's Wharf Honey Bear
@fnnch Fisherman’s Wharf Honey Bear
San Francisco muralist fnnch just completed a new project in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf.
Umbrella Alley SF is thrilled to have a @fnnch honey bear piece as part of the mural collection.
The design fnnch painted reflects the hard working fishing industry that is still the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf.
Dungeness Crab is the official and very tasty icon for this historic waterfront district. The two crabs proudly displayed are a shout out to the rhythmic sound of crab crackers still working every day in the crab stands. The Crab season starts in mid November and is eagarily anticipated each year.
fnnch believes art is for everyone. Only about 5% of a city’s residents and visitors tour its modern art museum. Street art and murals are art for the other 95%, inspiring and engaging them with the arts.
fnnch creates street art and murals using multi-layered stencils and spray paint. He calls his work “contemporary pop art”, depicting objects from both nature and everyday life. His art can be found in San Francisco, LA, New York, Miami, Chicago, St. Louis, Tel Aviv and Hong Kong.
