A project that originally began in April 2015 as an Instagram contest #ZettaMurals, expanded into what is now considered the most exciting and unique hotel art installation in San Francisco. The 7-story stairwell served as the perfect blank canvas to inspire local talent to tag, shape and paint their most creative designs, the outcome was astounding.
The 7-Story Canvas exhibit is now open for public viewing featuring walls worth of original mural art from contemporary muralist luminaries Buff Monster, Apexer, Steiner, Deb, Elle, Dirty Bandits, Mike Tyau, Pemex, and Griffin.

Hailing all the way from the land down under, this rerouted Aussie native has made a name for her self in SF bay area. From painting building exteriors, rhinos, box cars and vans, Deb's latest installation has made its home on the 3rd floor of our hotel stairwell.

Here is Deb spending countless hours on her soon to be masterpiece which can be viewed on the 3rd floor of the hotel stairwell.
Dirty Bandit History
Dirty Bandits is a San Francisco-based small design firm run by Annica Lydenberg, a designer, illustrator and sign painter deeply obsessed with type. As a graphic designer Annica pays close attention to typography - but now turns her talents to treating letters and words as art in various mediums - ahem... like the mural here.
They claim to be 'obsessed with type' - and are they right? This beauty sits in the stairwell and make the perfect backdrop for a #ZettaMurals instagram post.

Mike BAM Tyau
When Mike isn't busy jet-setting to paint in Barcelona or Hiroshima, he finds himself split between Hawaii and SF, working on projects like this - creating ground breaking art.
A native to the central coast of California, Pemex has put up work all throughout his home state and even abroad - his street work is savage and unrelenting, stylish and possessing in it a humor and history unique to the artist himself.
Steiner's 5th Floor Masterpiece
Steiner's fifth floor work consists of an angry seal and three-eyed monster...
Like the seal said, don't call it frisco. Steiner is hard at work with this one on the 5th floor.
