10. Jenny Sharaf
Born in Los Angeles in 1985, Jenny Sharaf is a San Francisco multidisciplinary artist.

Known for her graphic yet quasi-psychedelic poured paint technique, this recent work was made on vintage pattered fabric in her current Gate 5 Studio in Sausalito. Sharaf also has a strong mural practice, with walls as far away as Tokyo and Beirut. She received her B.F.A. from University of Hawaii, Manoa, and her M.F.A. from Mills College, Oakland. She is newly represented by John Berggruen Gallery in San Francisco.
