ABOUT THE ART
I am honored to partner with the San Francisco Ballet because they are a world-class arts institution with world-class artists. They are considered not only one of the best ballet companies in the United States but in the world, making them perhaps the most elite cultural institution in San Francisco.
These times are especially challenging for an arts organization like the San Francisco Ballet because of its in-person, up-close and collaborative nature. While their entire season is remote / digital, they still need to COVID test their dancers and staff multiple times per week. I am proud to support this group of artists through this tough time.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Mark Drew is a graphic artist known for screen prints depicting clever cultural mash-ups of _Peanuts_’ comic characters with rap lyrics replacing their captions. Drew debuted his unique spin on Contemporary Pop art in 2013 with a solo show in Sydney titled “Deez Nuts.” Appropriating the characters of the original Charles M. Schulz Peanuts comic strip, Drew’s prints feature lyrics by Jay-Z, Nas, Wu-Tang Clan, and the Notorious B.I.G. among others. His works can be found in private collections all over the world, including that of the rap artist Drake. Born in Australia, Drew is the co-founder of China Heights Gallery in Sydney. The artist’s prints have been exhibited at galleries in Sydney, London, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and Miami.
