Up from the Street

Experience artists whose work emanates from the street.

Once a professional skateboarder, Tommy Guerrero channels the skate culture through his music and visual artwork.

Next see graffiti artist and self-described bad boy David Choe, who has moved from the streets of Los Angeles and San Jose to the brink of stardom. He has self-published graphic novels, produced illustrations for magazines and mounted dozens of gallery shows of his paintings.

Also check out reflections of "Life on Market Street: An Audio Archive," with the four-wheeled interactive artwork by the artist team of Wowhaus (thewowhaus.com).
