Upon stepping into Artillery Apparel Gallery, you're immediately faced with a huge, gold framed easel, holding a t-shirt, stretched like canvas, in various stages of painting. This is no upright screen-print job, but rather, hand-painted t-shirts by Artillery AG's owner, Ivan Lopez.
Lopez is straight up, born-and-bred Mission hip. After studying Industrial Design at Pratt and selling his shirts on street corners in NYC, he returned to SF and open Artillery AG right in his hometown hood -- the Mission.
