San Francisco's poster child for street art is as adept at assembling captivating gallery shows as he is outfitting skateboarders and earning street cred for his graffiti-inspired designs. This exhibit is filled with Flores' monochromatic sketches and large-scale, richly colored paintings. Figures often stand amidst swampy, aquatic environs, surrounded by exotic animals, adorned by flowers, and embellished with touches of gold leaf. Most intriguing is a towering sculpture of a woman whose skirt forms a teepee-like space in which a birdcage — complete with live birds — hangs. The sculpture itself is surrounded by hanging fishbowls, each containing live betta fish.
