Quote of the Day
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 26 October 2012 08:13

"One thing you who had secure or happy childhoods should understand about those of us who did not. We who control our feelings, who avoid conflicts at all costs, or seem to seek them. Who are hypersensitive, self-critical, compulsive, workaholic, and above all survivors. We are not that way from perversity, and we cannot just relax and let it go. We've learned to cope in ways you never had to." -Piers Anthony, author

Russell Leng | The Diamond Sea
Written by Van Edwards   
Wednesday, 24 October 2012 10:45

The group show, The Diamond Sea, runs through Nov 10th in San Francisco at FFDG. We've been profiling the artists in the show and we contiue with one of our favorite painters who happens to reside in Vancouver.

Russell Leng is currently living in Edinburgh, UK, pursuing a MFA from Edinburgh College of Art and has been exhibited throughout North America and Europe, and awards include 1st Place Painting Prize from the Surrey Art Gallery, and a BMO Student Invitational nomination. He has been featured in numerous online and print publications including Gestalten, Chronicle, and the Globe and Mail.

Location? Age? Education? Website?

C9, Edinburgh. B.A. from Trinity Western University, and currently pursing a M.F.A. from Edinburgh College of Art.

How would you describe your work to someone?

I'm interested in opposites and finding ways to negotiate between them. Inquiries into natural vs. fabricated environments, chance vs. control, and digital vs. firsthand experiences have all been recent investigations that aim to articulate contemporary in-between states I find myself in. In my paintings I have been focusing specifically on the conglomeration of natural and man-made environments melding together through rigid shapes interacting with loose marks.

Influences?

The good ones and the bad ones.

Favorite place traveled?

Toss up between Indonesia and Colombia.

Fame Festival - Grottaglie, Italy (Part 2)
Written by Henrik Haven   
Wednesday, 17 October 2012 16:22

What a journey this has been! Me and my girlfriend had such a good time in Grottaglie, Italy at this years Fame Festival. Tasty food, good coffee, great people, lots of sunshine and last but not least, we saw a bunch of excellent public art pieces in the streets of the town. We spent many days walking around the whole town to find most of the pieces, just like a treasure hunt.

Anyway, here's a photo documentation of some of the new murals in this neck of the woods which are all from 2012 (I think?). The excellent lineup included artists like Erica Il Cane, Vhils, Interesni Kazki, Conor Harrington, Cyop & Kaf, Momo, Lucy McLauchlan, Bastardilla, Moneyless, Boris Hoppek and the local artist Giorgio Di Palma, who creates beautiful handmade ceramic objects like the telephone/phonebooth in this album.

Trav's Corner: Folsom Street Fair 2012 in 12
Written by Travis Jensen   
Wednesday, 10 October 2012 13:00

Short essay chronicling this year's San Francisco Folsom Street Fair, one of the City's most interesting and eclectic events. Series is a mix of portraiture and candid scenes. All images were snapped with a Ricoh GRD III, a small, pocket-sized compact camera released in 2009 that I recently swooped off eBay for $370 delivered. Though I already owned the film version of this camera (Ricoh GR1s) and love it, this was my first time really shooting with the GRD III. I'm really diggin the "Snap" feature Ricoh offers, where with the push of a button you can preset the focus for various distances: 1m, 1.5m, 2.5m, 5m and Infinity, which is ideal for shooting fast on the street.

Any other Ricoh shooters on here? If not, what cameras are you shooting with on the street: digital, film, mobile?

I just gave you $1,000,000. Quick, what do you do with it!

I'd like to go on a very long road trip across up, down and across North America in a super luxury RV with wifi and unlimited bandwidth.



Best way to spend a day off?

These days it's usually drinking tea, responding to neglected emails and watching an entire season Top Chef in one sitting.

Todd James, The Vandal's Bedroom @V1
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 09 October 2012 13:35

Copenhagen -- Henrik Haven emailed over some pics from Todd James (born in New York, 1969) current show at V1 in Copenhagen. The show is broken down in two parts. Today Fecal Face will feature one part, the Vandal's Bedroom which first premiered as part of the Art In The Streets exhibition at the MOCA in Los Angeles.

The changing installation, mimics a teenage graffiti vandals bedroom and working headquarter, with hundreds of rough sketches pinned roughly to the walls, pop culture references, slogans, appropriated cartoon characters and art supplies. The piece is an homage to the environment Todd James grew up with and in part informed his later practice.

Meredith Dittmar lives and works in Portland, OR. Her last solo show was in Mexico City @Fifty24MX featuring some of her recent clay sculptures. Besides working on her intricately beautiful clay sculptures, Meredith also works in animation and design.

Location? Age? Education? Website?

Portland OR, 38, Umass CompSci/Sociology, http://www.corporatepig.com

How would you describe your work to someone?

I know Im supposed to be good at this question but it never seems to go well. I usually say something along the lines of "relief-like sculpture in polymer clay mounted in shadowboxes"

Influences?

Visualizations of maths and science, Integral theory, Non-dual teachers, everywhere I have been and everything I have seen

Favorite place traveled?

It’s a boring answer but I like it all - same Now, different scenery!

Working routine? Music? Time of day?

Mornings are my best time and music changes with my mood and the kind of work Im doing. If theres a lot of repetition Ill listen to nerdy talks

Describe your process for creating new work.

I research, collect images and words, then let it marinate a bit. Next I mix the clay palate and begin making small parts inspired by my research until I have a decent library of assets to pull from. From there I settle in and start making larger pieces. I like to do all the sculpting first for all the pieces I'm going to make, then move on to painting the backgrounds and prepping the pieces to be mounted. My husband makes all my shadow boxes. The final step is to glue them and clean them and seal them up.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.

Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON

Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.


Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...


Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.


Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


NYCHOS @Fifty24SF

Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.


Gator Skater +video

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?


Ferris Plock Online Show Now Online as of April 25th

AJ Fosik in Tokyo at The Hellion Gallery

Matt Wagner recently emailed over some photos from The Hellion Gallery in Tokyo, who recently put together a show with AJ Fosik (Portland) called Beast From a Foreign Land. The gallery gave twelve of Fosik's sculptures to twelve Japanese artists (including Hiro Kurata who is currently showing in our group show Salt the Skies) to paint, burn, or build upon.


Ferris Plock - Online Show, April 25th

FFDG is pleased to announce an exclusive online show with San Francisco based Ferris Plock opening on Friday, April 25th (12pm Pacific Time) featuring 5 new medium sized acrylic paintings on wood.


GOLD BLOOD, MAGIC WEIRDOS

Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne played host to a huge group exhibition a couple of weeks back, with "Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos" Curated by Melbourne artist Sean Morris. Gold Blood brought together 25 talented painters, illustrators and comic artists from Australia, the US, Singapore, England, France and Spain - and marked the end of the Magic Weirdos trilogy, following shows in Perth in 2012 and London in 2013.


Jeremy Fish at LA's Mark Moore Gallery

San Francisco based Fecal Pal Jeremy Fish opened his latest solo show Hunting Trophies at LA's Mark Moore Gallery last week to massive crowds and cabin walls lined with imagery pertaining to modern conquest and obsession.


John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.


FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


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


Tyler Bewley ~ Recent Works

Some great work from San Francisco based Tyler Bewley.


Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery

While walking our way across San Francisco on Saturday we swung through the opening receptions for Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery in the Mission.

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.
