Street Artist San Francisco

Street Artist – Joseph Clark

There is plenty of authentic art in the city of San Francisco and throughout the entire Bay area. From world-class museums to the whimsical murals in the Mission District to avant-garde folk art sold at street festivals you don’t have to go too far or look too hard to appreciate all of the beautiful art being created all around us.

I have always enjoyed “discovering” the starving street artist and adding their wares to my small, but growing collection of one of a kind pieces. I encourage you to keep an eye out and don’t hesitate to talk to several of the street artists scattered about town.

Recently I spotted artist Joseph Clark, who is often stationed outside the Westin Saint Francis on Union Square.

Clark became a professional street artist in 1996, and he’s made a living at it ever since. Some of his previous clients include actor Robin Williams, singer Willie Nelson and actress Reese Witherspoon to name a few.

I fully appreciate that art is subjective, and not everyone will share Clark’s vision, but I encourage locals and visitors alike to take a moment and flip through his collection and buy if something catches your eye.

Let’s support street artists like Clark as they provide a valuable and often affordable way to attain some fun artwork. If nothing else, you will discover some original, colorful and friendly characters along San Francisco’s city sidewalks.
