Brian Barneclo (b. 1972 Indianapolis IN) - is a San Francisco based fine artist and muralist. Barneclo is credited with creating the largest mural in the San Francisco Bay Area, “Systems” (2011) which comes in at 600 feet long and 40 feet high. He was raised in Indianapolis and studied fine arts and art history at Indiana University (BA 1995). Drawn to San Francisco by its cultural legacy of innovation and creativity (ie., Beat, Hippie, Punk, Skate culture), he has since found the distinct and interwoven neighborhoods to have had the greatest influence on his work. He describes himself as a “sign painter gone rogue” when explaining his approach- a graphic style born in letterform but with far reaching influences from all sectors of culture. From large scale to small, it is likely to see his sensibilities adjust based on the context in which he is working, whether it be studio, street or storefront. His style, however, remains unmistakeable.
