Special Delivery by Endless Canvas
Written by Michael Kershnar   
Friday, 14 September 2012 08:49

Special Delivery presented by Endless Canvas went off last Saturday night in Berkeley. Over 3000 people rolled out to peep the four story abandoned ink factory filled with 100 new murals from some of the Bay's Finest Graffiti Writers and Street Artists. Non-stop live hip-hop on the first story was cracking along with fresh pieces from BVRS and Jaut, while the second story featured death defying work from Swampy and Chert, an Oakland African Village installation by Dead Eyes, a Coyote Cartoon Graffiti church and some clean SF Funk from Sway, S8n, Jeans, and The Fresh Prince.

The third floor was an insane DJ Dance party from Miggy Stardust in front of a classic Pemex burner. Ras Terms, Safety First, Oddfelllow, Edith, and Gats also came correct as always. If one were strong and brave enough to climb to the roof, you would know it was cracking up there as well. Big ups to Endless Canvas for putting it all together. It was amazing to see so many generations, and people of such diverse backgrounds all celebrating the art together with a positive vibe and getting their groove on. It was definitely a night that will live on in Bay Area Art History. -Michael Kershnar

Bryan Schnelle, New Works
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 12 September 2012 12:57

LA Based Bryan Schnelle emailed some of his recent collage works. A year and a half ago we asked Bryan, in this interview, Describe your process for creating new work.

Bryan wrote: I look at a lot of magazines. Occasionally I'll see something that really strikes me for whatever reason, something that will work on its own, as a separate work on paper, tear it out and set it aside. But usually I'm working on something big or elaborate, so I'm just scanning various magazines looking for what I need at that particular time. If I'm working on a large-scale painting I'll find all of the pages that I'm going to need and work on getting those ready first. Then comes the fun part (building, stretching, priming, painting, gluing…) A large scale collage painting is such an undertaking that I have to have a solid idea before I even begin. That's why it's good to work on the small works on magazine pages in between the big stuff; they're so quick that they allow for a certain freedom of experimentation. I need that balance. I get really bored if I start to feel like I'm repeating myself. I need constant progression.

More From Copenhagen
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 10 September 2012 14:12

Looks like we're featuring Copenhagen today on Fecal Face as Simon Hjermind Jensen emailed over photos from his massive mural project he and Theis Wendt, Anders Schmidt and Silas Inoue worked on there in Copenhagen. He writes:

The mural resembles a giant tanker, grounded on the streets of Copenhagen. The tanker is influenced by the form of the wall that together with the existing chimney already looks like a ship. The cracks in the tanker resonate with the decay from the already existing graffiti, which has been preserved and thus incorporated into the motif. The ship is empty, there are no logos on the containers, and there is no motif's that gives a certain explanation on how the ship has ended where it is and why it's abandoned. In this way the ship invites to a mental exploration, open for whatever value or narrative the viewer wants to create. http://www.shjworks.dk/

This Friday, Sept 7th (6-9pm), FFDG will be hosting a benefit show for our friend and long time contributor turned writer for the forthcoming cartoon for Nickelodeon, Sanjay and Craig, Andreas Trolf who was involved in a horrible motorcycle accident a few months back- almost completely severed foot, broken ribs, nose, facial bones plus many other broken bits and scraped body parts.

Andreas Trolf was just 2 days from receiving his health insurance at the time of the accident... All works sold from the show will go to help cover his incredible health care costs from having to spend weeks in the hospital receiving reconstructive surgeries.

Besides the beer treats, we'll have donated works by Jeremy Fish, Jay Howell, Mel Kadel, Ferris Plock, and many others. We'll also have tattoo time with the great Henry Lewis which will be raffled off along with many other great surprises.

Glint
Henry Gunderson & Eric Shaw
Opening: Friday, Sept 14th (7–10pm)
@FFDG

Preview inquires, email: info(at)ffdg.net

San Francisco, CA -- FFDG is pleased to present San Francisco based Henry Gunderson and Brooklyn based Eric Shaw in the impressive two person show, "Glint" featuring 15 new paintings from the two accomplished artists. This will be Gunderson's third show and Shaw's first centerpiece show with FFDG. An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, Sept 14th (7-10pm). Both artists will be present. Beer and wine will be available.

Eric Shaw and Henry Gunderson are two young artists walking the contentious middle ground between a tried and trusted geometric abstraction and a newly forming breed of representational surrealism. Shaw's work, hopping between abstraction figurative narratives and unabashed op-art patterning, is a refreshing reminder of the fertile and ever-growing common ground between the worlds of independent music and professional art. Gunderson's newest work is a renewed showcase of his ability to embrace painterly two-dimensionality while remaining fully engaged in an image's potential as a window-space to be entered and explored. Both artist's work share an obtuse unearthly charm as a common language, and their work promises to have an energetic and productive conversation in their upcoming exhibition. -Tom Betthauser, 2012

Henry Gunderson (b.1990) is a recent graduate of The San Francisco Art Institute and has shown locally at FFDG, The Luggage Store, White Walls, and 111 Minna and his first curated show “Water McBeer Extravaganza” ran at Ever Gold in 2011. He's also shown works at Nudashank Baltimore, Breeze Block Gallery Portland, Show N Tell Toronto, and Mark Murphy San Diego.

Eric Shaw (b.1983), self taught artist, lives and works in Brooklyn and has shown works at Space 1026 Philadelphia, Park Life San Francisco, Yes Gallery Brooklyn, Pen to Paper Berlin, Double Break San Diego.

Mark Whalen - Melbourne Art Fair
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 07 September 2012 08:57

One of the lovely things about having an art site that's been around for over 12 years is watching our favorite artists work develop over the years. Take LA based Mark Whalen (Kill Pixie) for example. Check out his incredible recent works for the Melbourne Art Fair posted here, and then check out our interview with him 5 years ago. His work was great then, but damn, loving his development even from his previous show @FFDG not even one year ago. Way to move it forward, Mark... Bravo.

Eric van Straaten emailed some of his 3D modeling artworks to us, and they're pretty interesting in their subject matter but also in the process of how they're created.

Through 3D printing, with services like i.materialise.com, you can turn your computer generated 3D model into a physical sculpture. You don't need any sophisticated applications either. They have browser apps that can create 3D models. Pretty sweet.

Oh, and we're back from our little time off. Hope your enjoying your labor day off. Maybe a little interneting between BBQs w/ friends.

Derek here, old SF/Philly contributer, anyway I came across this photo project this guy is working on in Philly and thought it was pretty moving/ interesting... here is the link.

I do a bag of dope before I leave my house. If I have money at that point, um, I’ll do like, one or two bags of dope. I get ready, I get a shower, I come out, you know, catch a date, and you know, after I catch a date, well, I go get my drugs and then I catch another date, and then another date, you know. So… It’s kind of, it’s kinda rough out here. You gotta watch the cops 24 hours a day, you know what I mean? You gotta watch what car you get into. You know, I just, you know, I don’t like being out here.

"Epilogue" (Preview) at Hold Up Art Gallery
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 23 August 2012 07:16

San Francisco artist Hugh Leeman along with Bay Area artists David Young and Eddie Colla are preparing for the show "Epilogue" at Hold Up Art Gallery in downtown Los Angeles opening on Saturday, Sept 8th. He emailed over some preview images as they prepare for the show.

"Epilogue" is a fully immersive art installation taking over the entirety of Hold Up Art Gallery in downtown Los Angeles. The Bay Area's most prolific vandals, David Young, Eddie Colla, and Hugh Leeman present a vision of our world, after it's inevitable collapse. An existence stripped of mass media, conspicuous consumption and the trappings of a modern global society. A future reduced to the tasks of survival and memory. This ambitious installation will feature new works created from found objects and home made weapons. "Epilogue" opens Saturday, September 8th at 7p.m. Hold Up Art Gallery is in the heart of downtown Los Angeles , 2 blocks South of The Geffen Contemporary MOCA. 358 E. 2nd St. open tuesday- sunday, 213-221-4585.

Met up with Jeremy Fish last night to catch up and discuss his upcoming solo show opening this August at San Francisco's FFDG. Don't want to give too much away, but the guy is very busy these days. You know the giant pink bronze statue will be built and installed at the corner of Haight and Laguna welcoming those to the Haight (check) in 2015? Going to be incredible.

Check photos from his last San Francisco solo show in 2012, and mark your calendar for August as his next solo show opens at FFDG.

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb.

Art or Vandalism? See the World’s First Graffiti Drone
Saturday, 12 April 2014 10:30

I attached a cradle with a spray paint can and other hardware to the drone. I created a series of paintings that are larger, about maybe 3 feet by 3 feet all the way up to 25 feet by 15 feet … And basically, I achieved the perfect air pressure, the perfect weight of the paint and the perfect materials so that the drone didn’t freak out when I attached these mechanisms to it, Katsu said. --continue reading

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

SAN FRANCISCO --- Nikki McClure, known for her painstakingly intricate and beautiful paper cuts, returns to Needles & Pens with an opening reception this Friday, April 11th - She'll be showing original papercuts for the book, "May the Stars Drip Down" - show details

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.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


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


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.

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.
