1 Brush is an initiative of Rocha Art (formerly Ian Ross Gallery). The project seeks to beautify and uplift communities with public murals and bring art classes to kids from underserved communities. 1 Brush believes that art shouldn’t be confined to a gallery setting and looks forward to engaging community through classes, panel discussions, and public art projects in addition to their regular exhibition schedule.
1 Brush was co-founded by Daniele Rocha and Ian Ross. Daniele is a leading art dealer and curator specializing in innovative, interdisciplinary contemporary art. Since moving to San Francisco from her native Brazil in 1999, Daniele has represented a variety of well-known artists from the fine art and street art worlds. She was a founding partner of Ian Ross Gallery and has independently curated exhibitions for many clients including Gensler, Facebook, Infinity Towers, and others. Philanthropy is at the heart of Rocha’s work and she has used her influence to raise funds for venerable organizations such as the Global Fund for Women, City Youth Now, and Youth Speaks. Though her involvement in the arts, she seeks to empower women and create a better future for San Francisco’s next generation.
