about us

Welcome to Park Life. We are an independent retail store and art gallery based in San Francisco. Our goal is simple; to showcase art and design that we find relevant.

Started in 2006 by Jamie Alexander and Derek Song, Park Life is a Retail Store and separate Art Gallery. Located in the Inner Richmond in a turn-of-the-century commercial space formerly housing the famous Busvan furniture store, Park Life spans over 1200 sq.ft. of floor space.

Park Life 2 opened in 2023 and is located at 201 Clement Street and features gifts and homewares.

The retail space features art and design products culled together from all over the world. We feature hard to find, limited edition, and unique items that include; books (art, type, design, photography, etc.), modern design objects, prints, paper goods, t-shirts, homewares, jewelry, artist multiples, original art and more.

Park Life Gallery's ambition is to show the most engaging contemporary art being created today. Park Life Gallery features 10 exhibits each year.
