He's been producing great drawings and zines for over a decade having spent a good many years living and working in San Francisco before making the move to LA to work on Sanjay and Craig.

A tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan @LeQuivive Gallery, Oakland

Last Friday, September 26th, Oakland's own LeQuivive Gallery and founder Michael Broberg hosted an epic show that covers a group of different disciplines around one very influential concept. Champagne Tigers, curated by Hunter De La Ghetto, is a tribute to the Wu-Tang Clan and all of the ways that they have influenced culture as we know it.  And Oakland definitely showed up for this as the gallery was packed out. Tattooer Dana James (Eye of the Tiger Tattoo) brought in an amazing series of paintings done in a traditional Japanese back piece fashion that incorporated each member of the Wu with their own specific iconography as well as legendary traditional Japanese symbols and images. 

John Felix Arnold III (whose solo exhibition "No Destination" opens this Friday at FFDG) created four conceptual sculpture pieces and one a full blown installation, ranging from a Bullet Proof Wallet (see Ghostface Killah's 3rd solo album) to the the Wu-Tang logo done in his signature found food assemblage panelling style, to a replica of the instruments in the actual Torture skit on "Enter the 36 Chambers".

Ken Davis, prolific sign painter and Bay Area artist, brought 8 masterfully painted and hand made signs that truly blew the crowd away, one an homage to the timeless track "C.R.E.A.M." that is still played at pretty much any party you will go to to this day.  And Sean Gillespie (Old Crow Tattoo) absolutely killed it with nine beautifully rendered illustrative paintings of each of the original members.  The crowd response was amazing and just in time for the Wu's Saturday night performance at the Warfield in SF.  Talk about a Wu-Tang Weekend.  Go see this show before it comes down if you couldn't make the opening, especially if the music of the Wu-Tang Clan has played any part in your life.  These artists will continue to cook up some marvelous shit to keep your mouth watering.  Show runs through October 18th. -The New Dirty Bastard

Jeremy Fish's Drawings Animated and Projected San Fransico

Yesterdays and Tomorrows by Jeremy Fish, opening Friday, August 15th at FFDG in San Francisco, is a celebration of Fish’s 20 years of living in San Francisco. With that in mind, we wanted to bring this mural to life in, and literally on, some of the places that his drawings depict. We hope our readers will come celebrate on August 15, 2014, when we project this animated mural once again across from Fish’s art opening at FFDG.
