Brian Barneclo (b. 1972 Indianapolis IN) - is a fine artist and muralist residing in San Francisco, California. Upon graduating from Indiana University (BA Fine Arts/Art History 1995) he made his way to the Bay Area drawn by the cultural legacy of innovation and creativity (ie., Beat, Hippie, Punk, Environmentalist and Skateboard culture). Inspired by San Francisco’s distinct yet tenuous neighborhoods, he developed his own unique vernacular born as if from a sign painter gone rogue- mashing up and incorporating pop, cubist, and surreal ideals along the way. His scale increased when in June 2004 he was awarded a commission to paint a mural for The SF Bay Guardian and in September of 2011 he was painting San Francisco’s largest mural, “Systems” (600’ x 40’) in fiscal partnership with Intersection for the Arts (501c3). From large scale to small, it is likely to see his sensibilities adjust based on the context in which he is working, whether it be studio, street or storefront.
