- Vhils gorgeous wall cutting. I’m so bummed this piece didn’t make it on a building in San Diego. What a beautiful work of art.
- The Os Gemeos twins did two amazing indoor pieces for the show (a giant guitar man and a wood and mixed-media piece) and one piece you can see on the outside of Horton Plaza.
- Dzine’s bike pieces are sure to please the southern California crowd.
- Ryan McGinness’ large-scale pieces are bright and nearly perfect, as usual.
- Shepard Fairey’s portraits will likely be two of the most popular pieces in the show. His giant outdoor pieces will help to put San Diego on the international art map. Thanks Shep!
- The music-making trash can by David Ellis and Roberto Lang.
