In the art world, movements come and go. What might seem trendy or new during one season seems outdated by the next. But a city like San Francisco is especially well-suited to throw those rules out of the window. The Bay Area art scene flourishes in the face of difficulty—like rising rent costs and the closing of galleries—to find not only alternative spaces but also new ways of creating. The city’s emerging artists prove that no single style reigns supreme—San Francisco welcomes all varieties of expression. These already-successful artists will inevitably become even more talked about as their signature styles help their creative paths gain recognition in the Bay Area and beyond.
