Founded in 2009 by Paul Ecdao and Johnny Tran, Thumbprint Gallery curates monthly and pop-up exhibitions featuring emerging, mid-career, and established artists with a focus on contemporary pop culture, nostalgia, urban art and pop surrealism. Over the years I have shown with them in several different pop-up locations, mostly at Bar Basic in downtown San Diego. They have consistently supported local artists in all the time I have known them. They are exceptional people.
