can’t visit san francisco without saying hi to @pacolli, who is one of my favorite artists and insanely talented.
her work is fun and weird and you can see her brazilian street art party life background and also so much heart. she’s been ripped off many times in the ten years she’s been actively making work, but there’s something special about her lines and the way she approaches things, hand drawing tiny stickers for shop orders and truly living in the world she’s made.
if you don’t follow her, follow her. buy her one of kind ceramics and get her small batch zines. she is fucking brilliant and I have admired her for so many and it blows my mind that I’ve been able to become her friend.
this morning I met the incredible brazilian artist @pacolli! she lives in sf now, a block from my hotel! it was fate. I’ve been inspired by her work for years, it feels so real and effortless and cool. I was so nervous to meet in person being such a fan but we talked about feeling like you just NEED to make, and being a person, and everything. I’m obsessed with her & meeting only reinforced that. you have to follow her, know her work, buy your favorites, and know that this is the real deal. I’m still beaming and we only met briefly for a studio visit and coffee. I’m pinching myself. this is what instagram & the internet is all about! #highinthebay
