Aeron Alfrey, Chris Bettig, Bigfoot, Aaron Brown, Buff Monster , Michael Coleman, Louie Cordero, Cupco, Tom Forget, Noel Freibert, French, Matt Furie, Joe The Artist, Paul Lyons, Jeremiah Maddock, Kiyoshi Nakazawa, Tom Neely, Matt Nelson, Eric Nyquist, Martin Ontiveros, Prodip, Brian Ralph, Albert Reyes, Scrappers , Skinner, Ryan Jacob Smith, Bwana Spoons and Hannah Stouffer

A highly-regarded explorer of visual communication, Aldous Huxley once said, “The man who comes back through the Door in the Wall will never quite be the same as the man who went out.” The same can be said about a few particular months of teenage life experienced by artist Tofer Chin, depicted, from memory, in his new body of work, showing at the Fecal Face Gallery in San Francisco.
Entitled “Alex,” Chin’s new show further represents his on-going relationship with Op-Art, as well as his perseveration on sensory perception and mind expansion, while also impressively marking his move to wholly personalize and reinvigorate the movement. Whereas previous works used unnatural color and concept to examine the spiritual and psychological impact of synthetic LSD, “Alex” strives to enhance the personal and shift to the organic by refocusing on the naturally-derived hallucinogen, mescaline. Unlike LSD, mescaline never lies. Instead, the mescaline experience includes visual enhancements of originating truths.

Since this is all of the information I could really find in English, here is a short bio:

Since he was born in September 1980 (Florence – Italy), Francesco D’Isa loves synthesis and hates biography. He studied philosophy in Florence. He’s self-taught as an artist: his fascination with visual imagery has driven him to master the required skills. He’s a pioneer of digital art in Italy, but his skills as a drawer let him work with traditional media as well. He was the co-founder of the Italian Art & Literature magazine “Mostro”, where he published his first artworks. After that, his digital and traditional artworks were featured in many magazines around the world, like “Expose III”, Ballistic Publishing (USA); “Pixel Surgeons: Extreme manipulation of the figure in Photography”, Mitchell Beazley Art & Design, Octopus ed. (UK); “Black magic, White Noise” ed “Illusive 3”, Die Gestalten Verlag (GERMANY); “Design 360°”, San Du Culture ed. (CHINA). He won art prizes and exhibited his artworks in galleries worldwide (Italy, Germany, England, USA, Australia, Russia, Argentina etc). In 2007 he became “Pornpope” founding the porn-artistic He organized for Pornsaints international art exhibitions and parties in art galleries and erotic festivals, both in Europe and USA. Moreover, through his work as “Pornpope” many international porn stars like Kylie Ireland, Stoya, Madison Young and Sasha Grey acted for him as muses, models and working partners.

From the one image and the brief write up, this would be a show I would for sure see.
