An insightful interview with Book Conservator Daniel Flanagan about Ratio 3′s exhibition of Margaret Kilgallen works that ends this week.
From planning his next meal to fantasizing about hookers with hamburger heads to painting portraits of rappers like Cheazy-E to collaborating on a beef-themed graffiti production, no one knows burgers better than STEEL. For this post, Zio asked the San Francisco-based graffiti writer and fine artist to list his top-five burgers in the city. His mouthwatering photos and poignant reviews are featured below.
Opening tonight (7/7) at 111 Minna in San Francisco.
A selection of works-on-paper and paintings on canvas “some never before seen” by the late, legendary artist Margaret Kilgallen (1967–2001). On view at Ratio3 in San Francisco until August 5th.

We’ve been following the work of INSA for years now. The UK-based artist has gone stylishly from graff and galleries, to heels and museums. INSA opened a show at Fifty24SF in San Francisco last week, we caught a couple moments of his time.
