Patricia Araujo

For over a decade, Patricia Araujo has painted the facades of both iconic city landmarks and downtown buildings. Her paintings depict praiseworthy examples of San Francisco architecture, some utilitarian and others grandly ornamental. She’s been bewildered by the architecture of cities she’s lived and traveled to and by imaginary places. From 2008 to 2010, she dedicated a series of works relating to Tomorrowland and as of most recent she’s devoted to painting the architectural wonders and forgotten treasures of the GGIE (the Golden Gate International Exposition of 1939 at Treasure Island) – the last World’s Fair of San Francisco Bay (on display at the San Francisco Public Library through March 2019). Her interest in researching the urban landscape continues to grow, addressing the evolution and decay within a city. Araujo continues to deepen her conceptual themes on architecture, place and change in the urban landscape.
