THE TIGERING!
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 29 March 2013 14:21

100 Years ago, the Champawat Tiger attacked and killed 436 villagers in India and Nepal. Manik Nakra has taken on the project of documenting all 436 tiger attacks with watercolor drawings. He put them on tumblr: www.thetigering.tumblr.com. The project is called: "THE TIGERING!"

The Champawat Tiger was a legendary female Bengal tiger responsible for an estimated 436 deaths in Nepal and the Kumaon area of India, mostly during the 19th century.

After killing over 200 people in Nepal, the tigeress was driven by the Nepalese Army across the border (river Sarda) into India, where she continued her massacring in the Kumaon District. A maneater so fearless, all her killings occurred during the daytime.

The tigress was finally shot in 1907 by a British colonel born in India named Jim Corbett, a dramatic feat confirmed by about 300 villagers. Since then, Corbett has been elevated to the level of a sadhu(saint) in the region and a monument has been constructed at the tigress death site. When India broke free of colonial rule in 1947, they opened their first national park, Jim Corbett National Park.

In January 2012, after reading this story in Man-Eaters of Kumaon (a journal kept by Jim Corbett), I began a project documenting all 436 tiger attacks. 
Why? Because its fucking badass. But along the way it turned into an installation about modernizing identities and an allegory for the messy and maddening road to progress in India. All drawings are watercolor and gouache on paper, 12in x 16in (30.4cm x 40.6cm)

Sten & Lex in Shanghai, China
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 28 March 2013 12:00

One of our favorite's, the Italian duo Sten & Lex, emailed over some images from their current show running through April 30th in Shanghai, China at Magda Danysz Gallery

Sten & Lex have been doing stencils on the street since 2000/2001 and today their work is part of the urban landscape in their home town of Rome, London, Paris, Barcelona, New York. During that early period in Rome, and Italy in general, there didn’t exist a strong stencil culture such as there was in France and Sten & Lex may be considered as the pioneers of "Stencil Graffiti" in Italy and were the first to be considered "stencil artists". All the work of Sten & Lex results from an individual path that developed far from art academies and design institutes and far from classic writing and graffiti background. The duo are best known in the history of stencil making for introducing the halftone stencil technique where the main part of their stencil portraits are composed by thousands of lines. They usually produce portraits from people they have photographed themselves or found in family photos album, anonymous people.

PangeaSeed's Sametan - Don't Tread on Me
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 28 March 2013 09:02

An estimated 70 million sharks killed each year to satisfy the unsustainable appetite for shark fin soup. As an apex predator at the top of the food chain, sharks play a vital role in ways common fish do not. In virtually every part of the ocean, sharks keep fish populations healthy and in proper balance. In areas where sharks have been over-fished, we are already seeing obvious change for the worse.

PangeaSeed is a non profit whose mission is raise public awareness and education surrounding the conservation and preservation of sharks and other marine species in peril.

This weekend PangeaSeed in collaboration with Tokyo-based vinyl toy designer Cometdebris (Koji Harmon), are pleased to announce their latest shark-saving effort: Sametan – Don't Tread on Me. For one weekend only, March 29-30, 2013, at the Spoke Art Gallery (816 Sutter St) in San Francisco, we will host a one of a kind art exhibition featuring 30 custom Sametan vinyl figures designed by 30 global artists including Frank Kozik, Buff Monster, Jenn Porreca and many more.

PangeaSeed's Sametan – Don't Tread on Me
Venue: Spoke Art – 816 Sutter Street – San Francisco, CA.
March 29th, 2013 – Opening Reception (7-11pm)
Suggested $5 – $10 donation

Val Kilmer Art, Miami Art Basel, 2012
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 27 March 2013 13:48

We did a studio visit with internet artist Ryder Ripps last month and after browsing his site came across this project to theme a show around Val Kilmer and the work they think he would enjoy... Enjoy.

--
In late 2011 I helped organize a group show called LikeArtBasel, featuring internet aware works by JOEY CARD, PETRA CORTRIGHT, STERLING CRISPIN, NICK DEMARCO, BEA FREMDERMAN, RACHEL LORD, WILL NEIBERGALL, RAFAEL ROZENDAAL, LIZ RYWELSKI, ZACH SHIPKO, RYAN TRECARTIN and myself.

Val Kilmer came to the show but didn't buy anything. Below you can see him at the show and not buying anything (photo credit Nick Demarco).

Hypothesizing Val's inner dialog while he was at LikeArtBasel became a running joke.. I started thinking about how funny it would be to make art specifically for his sensibilities.

Rachel Lord, Brad Horenstein and I started to back and forth ideas for art that Val Kilmer might like... mostly based on reading his twitter, the outfit he wore at LikeArtBasel and knowing that he lives on a ranch and raises buffalo.. for more of these idea's checkout the Val Kilmer Art Twitter.

ROA & Skateistan
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 22 March 2013 15:31

World traveling street artist ROA completed some board graphics for the nonprofit Skateistan who bring skateboarding to children in Afghanistan and Cambodia

"My purpose of my visit to Cambodia was an introduction to the Skateistan and also to the Sk8room project. It's a beautiful project because they help kids that don't have a lot of opportunities and let them be kids. I skateboarded as a kid. I grew up in the 80's so skateboarding for me was one of the most important things as a teenager and it came together for me with graffiti and hip-hop culture. So it was really important and you see now it still influences me. Early Skateboard graphics of Powell and Santa Cruz had such a special meaning for me as a teenager to begin with and it is still a big part of my life.” - ROA

The ROA x The SK8room skate decks will be available for sale only through www.thesk8room.com Twenty percent of all sales will be donated to Skateistan, a not-for-profit that teaches empowerment through skateboarding to children in impoverished countries like Afghanistan and Cambodia.

A while back Justin Martinkovic from the Martinkovic and Milford architect team contacted me to do a design for the long glass wall in their office. They also got a hold of Erik Otto to do an installation as well. Well, last Saturday the Martinkovic and Milford team held an office warming party with awesome appetizers and drinks for the newly finished space.

"Age of Omuktlans"
Curiot, solo show
Opening reception: Friday, Mar 8th, 6–9 pm
@FFDG, San Francisco

preview inquires, email: info(at)ffdg.net
RSVP on Facebook

FFDG is pleased to present Mexico City based painter and street artist Curiot (Favio Martinez) in his first solo show in the United States entitled “Age of Omuktlans” featuring 11 new colorful and vibrant acrylic paintings on canvas. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, March 8th (6-9pm). The artist will be present. Beer and wine will be available. The show runs through April 14th.

Curiot’s colorful paintings, featuring mythical half-animal half-human figures and scenes, which allude to Mexican traditions (geometric designs, Day of the Dead styles, myths and legends, tribal elements), are rendered in precise detail with a mixture of highly vibrant yet complementary colors. “Growing up in the States sort of gave me a diluted Mexican culture, I had no clue what I was missing out on until I moved back 10 years ago”, says Curiot. “The bright colors, folklore, ancient cultures and the beautiful handcrafts are some of the things that I embraced and which influence my work deeply”. The 11 new paintings in “Age of Omuktlans” tell the story of man’s distance from his natural path as he focuses his energy on satisfying his material pleasures and the dystopia this creates.

Curiot is a painter and street artist working in Mexico City. He earned his B.F.A from the Universidad Michoacana de S.N. Hidalgo in 2008. His paintings have been exhibited in diverse solo and group venues including: Fecal Face, Anno Domini, Fifty24MX, CC186, Centro Cultural Border, Galería David Alfaro Siqueiros, Lavamp, La Cream Galería, and received an award for his work “Mass Media” in the 7th National Biennial of Painting and Engraving Alfredo Zalce. Curiot´s work has been featured in numerous online and print publications including Beautiful Decay, Indie Rocks, El Fanzine, and Tongue Mag.

Curiot wants to do a wall while here in San Francisco. Do you have a good wall where he could do a piece? Let us know. info(at)ffdg.net

China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 22 February 2013 11:24

Hate to say that it took 10 years for us to finally check out the "new" location of the Asian Art Museum, and it's much more incredible than we all had thought.

Last night we attended the preview party for the Asian Art Museum's new show China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy (Feb 22 - May 27) featuring 10 life-sized terracotta soldiers which were hand-crafted in approx. 300 BC to protect China's first Emperor, Qin Shihuang in the afterlife... In 1974 they excavated this massive site where thousands of statues were discovered where these originated.

We waited in a long line for some drinks (later discovered the shorter cafe line), we listened to the energetic Extra Action Marching Band, we checked out the incredible terracotta soldiers, but the best part was taking in just a small piece of the museum's massive collection of Asian artifacts. With only 20 minutes before the night was to conclude, we raced to the 5th floor and tripped out on the Southeast Asia collection.

Extra Action Marching Band going for it amongst the crowd. Love these guys and gals.

At the time they were buried, they were hand painted in bright colors but the paint almost instantly faded when excavated.

Easy, son.

I Encourage Everyone to Barge.
Written by Tanner B   
Thursday, 21 February 2013 14:45

What do I mean by "barge"? I mean "to do something without entirely thinking about or caring about the consequences, asking for permission, or being prepared." Which is exactly what Conner Morton and I did in Southeast Asia.

Over three months on the road (about six months for Conner) with nothing but a road in front of me, a motorbike under me, a backpack behind me, and a set of rules to live and die by. These are what made the "Harsh Barge" the grim and dirty adventure that it was. Rule #1: Never pay to sleep. That meant no hotels, hostels, motels, guesthouses, bungalows, etc. Rule #2: Only travel by motorbike (aside from necessary flights).

Those were the rules that defined the trip. The other rules—never wash white t-shirts or jeans, no shaving, no meat, no wasting beer, etc.—only made it more interesting. Sure, we got plenty of strange looks and into lots of odd situations, like when I woke up on the ground outside a hospital in Siliguri surrounded by a police officer and fifteen confused Indians; but it made the experience more real, more raw. Call us disgusting, call us over-privileged Americans, call us anything. (Just don't call us hippies.)

Illegal camping and getting drunk on beaches with prawn farmers in Vietnam, avoiding landmines and border patrol hassles in Cambodia, sexual assaults by a monk at a Buddhist temple in Thailand, sleeping in an abandoned building and waking up to AK-47's in our face in Nepal, and Conner getting hit by a car and run over by a truck in India is just a small taste of the fun that we endured on the Harsh Barge.

I'm not saying do exactly what we did—I wouldn't encourage anyone to do that. It's not for everyone, but it was for us. I'm just saying that you should go do what you want before it's too late. Before you have that career/marriage/child. Take some time off school. Quit your day job. Buy that plane ticket. Barge.

Haley Morris-Cafiero's "Wait Watchers" Series
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 20 February 2013 15:00

While creating an image for my Something to Weigh series, I decided to photograph myself sitting alone on the Times Square stairs to capture my solitude in a busy crowd.

After developing the film, I noticed that a man was standing behind me being photographed by an attractive blonde woman. Rather than pose for her camera, he was sneering at me behind my back. Five minutes later and at another location, another man turns his back to gawk at me while I am photographing myself sitting at a cafe table.

I have always been aware of people making faces, commenting and laughing at me about my size. I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements.

Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people... and wait. -Haley Morris-Cafiero

Is It Curtains For San Francisco's Art Scene?
Tuesday, 08 April 2014 09:35

We all know that San Francisco is going through aches and (growing?)/ shrinking artist pains these days as San Francisco property values sky rocket due to the tech infestation going on around the entire Bay Area. Maybe you work in tech and love it, but since this is an art website, we're interested to how this is affecting artists trying to make ends meet.

Some galleries have been forced to close due to 300% rent hikes. Many artists have fled to Oakland, LA and NYC in search of affordable housing and a more vibrant art scene... But we wanna know what you think of how it's going here in San Francisco. How are you making it work? What's your take on the art scene or lack there of? Do you think things are on the up and up or down and out here in San Francisco? Are artists a bunch of complainers and every thing looks great or is it curtains for San Francisco's artistic community? Thoughts

This approach was born and bred out of the Olympia, Washington independent music scene. There, local artists emphasized everything handmade and self-published. The idea was to do a lot with a little. The result was a rich community sharing artistry and ideas. McClure found herself deeply embedded in this community which shaped an ethic of hands-on and accessible artmaking. - show details

Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.

Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding

Brian Barneclo's 225' Food Chain Mural

San Francisco based Brian Barneclo was commissioned in 2006 to paint a HUGE mural on the side of Foods Co on Shotwell at 14th Streets. After some time on its own, it got pretty taxed by misc graffiti and pigeon shit.


A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the citys shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesnt end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.


John Felix Arnold @BRIC House, Brooklyn

In the year or so that I've known Felix, almost every one of his shows has had a live musical element and it seems perfect that he would be included in a show called Art Into Music. He commandeered the corner of the gallery to create an installation that houses not only his drawing, but also an entire drum kit, amps and a dude playing a guitar. The warm wood paneling stands out in contrast to the matte grey boom-box tower and the muted wall of album covers and looks like a beacon calling to the crowd saying "this is what you shoud be looking at." However, it's not in a "look at me" attention-starved desperation, more like a welcoming invitation into his world.
