SOMA’s Latest Mural

http://sf.metblogs.com/archives/images/2006/02/yohei-thumb.jpgI saw the artist painting this on the alley wall of Club Six this past week or so. Cool. And his work looks really familiar. I’m blanking though. So, I’m bummed I didn’t stop at the time to chat him up, since now I can’t give him the proper shout-out he deserves. Anyone know? (FYI: The text on the scroll in the upper lefthand corner reads: “Sometimes life brings us surprises, happiness and sadness…But. Everything has meaning. Never give up. – Yohei”) And yup, I did a quick Google for ‘Yohei’, but no love. Doh. There are several great murals in the alleys on 6th St. b/t Market and Howard. Check’em out.

    uh huh. Didn’t know who the artist was, but that Japanese wave image is a classic.
