Muni Art 2022, themed "Streets in San Francisco".

Tan Sirinumas

Originally from Thailand, I have been a proud resident of the Tenderloin for the past twelve years making art with and about my growing community in San Francisco. My paintings are layered with a passion for architecture, inspired by building textures and city life.

For seven years I have been an artist, collaborator and educator with the historic non-profit Hospitality House in their Community Arts Program. CAP is a free art studio helping low income artists instill strength and self-empowerment through artistic expression in our neighborhood. I have experienced migration and displacement, so my work as an artist conveys that desire for belonging and place.
