For my first art gallery exhibition in San Francisco, I attended the Omar Chacon’s “Mesalinas Operaticas” opening at the Fouladi Projects gallery on Market Street. The exhibition will be on display through December 17, 2016.

Omar Chacon is an artist of Colombian origin, who received an MA from Ringling College of Art and Design and an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute. He currently lives in Astoria, New York City.

His art is acrylic-paint based; he invented his own paint formula and finds inventive, tactile ways to layer and combine colors. The results are vibrant and original.

Fouladi Projects gallery is owned and managed by Holly Fouladi. A native of California, she studied at the San Francisco Art Institute. She founded her namesake gallery in 2009. Previously, she co-owned Lincart Gallery.

Fouladi Projects gallery also has a retail section, where clients can acquire local artists’ production, for a range of wallet sizes!
