Showcasing each artist’s illustrative talents, this exhibition will feature cityscapes of San Francisco and beyond, both real and imagined. Paint, ink, pen, and brush are used to contemplate architecture, urban living, and its relationship with nature.

Ursula Xanthe Young

Ursula Xanthe Young is a painter, illustrator, and graphic designer whose urban fairy tale images have become a trademark of street culture in San Francisco and beyond. She finds inspiration in the organic yet urban landscape of the city and its surroundings, and is also highly influenced by her travels and the variety of beings that she encounters along the way. She holds a degree from Parsons School of Design in Illustration.

Ricky Watts

Ricky Watts is a Sebastopol-based illustrator, painter, and muralist whose love for art was prevalent at an early age, from coloring in his mother’s bubble letters, to creating comic strips depicting epic battles between nuclear dinosaurs and the US Army, to discovering his first graffiti magazine in the 8th grade. Fascinated with aerosol art, he became fully engaged and, in 1996, developed HelmetHeds zine, which he published for 8 years. Watts studied graphic design at the Art Institute of California, San Diego before returning to the Bay Area to focus on becoming a fine artist while working as a professional graphic designer.

Christian Rothenhagen

Christian Rothenhagen is a Berlin-born, -raised, and -based artist and designer who travels frequently to San Francisco and Toronto, and creates cityscapes of all three cities. His work mixes seemingly vernacular backgrounds and textures with perfectly executed line work. In addition to capturing his favorite urban areas at particular moments in time, he is also producing a social commentary that documents the evolution of these places.

Paul Madonna

Paul Madonna writes and draws the weekly series All Over Coffee, which is published in the San Francisco Chronicle and The Rumpus. He has authored two books, been published internationally, exhibited in galleries and museums (including the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco and the Oakland Museum of California), and printed large-scale murals for Tacolicious restaurants and Starbucks. Madonna has taught drawing at the University of San Francisco, and frequently lectures on creative practice. He holds a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University and was the first (ever!) Art Intern at MAD Magazine, for which he proudly received no money. Paul travels internationally for work, and currently lives in San Francisco.
