Mike Shine – New Mural in San Francisco
Mike Shine is an artist originally from Rochester, New York now residing in Bolinas, California. He is known for creating fully immersive art installations like his show at 941 Geary Gallery and most recent at White Walls SF . His work encompasses paintings on found objects, street art, music, films, operas, and the occasional carnival. Influenced by a past encounter in his childhood with a Russian carnival clown by the name of “Dr. Flotsam” he hasn’t been the same since, and the characters he paints resemble that eerie yet gentle looking carny.

The Mural was sponsored by Juxtapoz and Converse. Its Located on Olive alley and Polk street in San Francisco.
