The studio I work in is a unique place in San Francisco.  For one thing, it’s almost a miracle that we have survived the current construction and avarice boom that has pushed out so many other creative spaces over the past five years.  Thankfully, our building management is committed to the arts and non-profits, so here we still are. In addition to being a working studio, our space is also a meeting place of the arts and artists from many disciplines. 

Richard Louis Perri has held the master lease on the studio for the past twenty-five years.  He is a San Francisco original, a one-of-a-kind brilliant artist who knows all the local merchants by name and never is seen in public without his trademark porkpie hat.   Here he is at work: 

Both he and the studio are featured in “The Artist and the Angel”, a short film by Paul Anthony Mazzio:
