    In a city like San Francisco, you find inspiration lurking around essentially every hilly curve. In fact, this town is so rife with creativity and noteworthy talent that our local art community might soon be sending spots like L.A. and NYC some stiff competition.

    So, naturally, we’re amped to shine the spotlight on 12 artists whose names you don’t see plastered on street-side banners and buses along every downtown street…yet.
