Guest room corridors on 2nd and 3rd floors at Hotel SLO are capped with playful bursts of color by artist Leo Bersamina. Leo grew up surfing and fishing on the California coast, just south of SF. These vivid installations consist of driftwood collected from California beaches, uniquely hand-painted and off-set from the wall with dowels.


Leo Bersamina was born in San Francisco, California and grew up surfing and fishing on the coast, just south of the city.
