Bicicleta Sem Freio Completes New Mural in San Francisco at Hotel Des Arts


Brazilian illustrators Bicicleta Sem Freio finished a new mural at Hotel Des Arts in San Francisco. Curated by Upper Playground, the mural is set in the new ground floor lobby of the hotel and features BSF’s signature bold colors and beautiful female figures. Bringing together two adjacent walls, the bright psychedelic painting is a ‘can’t-miss’ addition to the boutique hotel that features contemporary works of emerging artists from around the world.

Bicicleta Sem Freio is in San Francisco for their first US exhibition “This Is Not A Poster”, presented by Fifty24SF Gallery in association with Upper Playground and JustKids. Opening reception is Friday, May 1st 7pm at Fifty24SF Gallery in Lower Haight.
