The Strange Life and Times of SF Street Artists

Being a San Francisco Street Artist means expect the unexpected. Naked people, crazy people (other than the crazy Street Artists) protest marches, unhoused people, inclement weather and the dreaded “be backs.” Be-backs are folks who spend an exorbitant amount of time looking through all you art only to say they’ll be-back. And of course you never see them again. But as one Street Artist would say to potential customers “Feel free to look my work over. I don’t care if you don’t buy anything, I just love the attention.”
