Blek Le Rat @941 Geary
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 18 November 2011 12:47

Swung through SF's 941 Geary last night to preview French stencil/ street artist Blek Le Rat's (our recent interview) solo show whose show 60/30 opens this Saturday, Nov 19th (6-9pm).

Blek has been doing street art/ stenciling throughout Europe since the 80s. This January marks his 60th birthday, and Blek has been creating art over the last 30 years. Dancing, graffiti, figures and a horse here and there.

Blek stenciling copies of his new book.

I don't know... How about you tell me, cornball?

The Art of Todd Bratrud: Seen Unknown
Written by Michael C. Hsiung   
Monday, 14 November 2011 18:04

I recently got a copy and shot some preview images of The Art of Todd Bratrud: Seen Unknown, the second installment in Mark Batty Publisher's Seen Unknown series, edited by Winston Tseng. The Seen Unknown artists series covers artists and designers whose work in various fields --from sneaker and apparel design to product packaging, posters, high-profile ad campaigns, and fine art galleries --are often recognizable, though their creators' names remain unknown--until now. (Back in March, I went to check out Marc McKee's show at HVW8 Gallery, whose book The Art of Marc McKee, was just released as the first part of the Seen Unknownseries.)

The Art of Todd Bratrud: Seen Unknown
Winston Tseng and Todd Bratrud
Publication Date: November 2011
Page Count: 96 pages
Size: 6.5 x 8.5 inches
Paperback
$19.95

Words and photographs by Michael C. Hsiung

A nice package from Winston and the folks at Mark Patty Publishers. Thanks for the book and catalog!

This fine book is filled with 96 pages from Todd's wild imagination, featuring his bold lines and eye-popping colors. It covers all of Todd's many art and design tentacles from work with his own companies, The High 5 and Teenage Runaway, to the best in the business, including The Skateboard Mag, Consolidated Skateboards, Flip Skateboards, Enjoi, Familia Skateshop, Burlesque Design, Volcom, Nike SB, Burton Snowboards, and Creature Skateboards. Oh yeah, did I mention that the book is only $19.95? A fine affordable price I might add.

Ryan Bubnis for 11.11.11
Written by Van Edwards   
Wednesday, 09 November 2011 11:06

We're going to featuring some mini interviews with artists participating in the group show 11.11.11 opening up at FFDG's temporary gallery space at 248 Clement St @4th Ave in the Inner Richmond on Friday, Nov 11th (6-9pm).

Also opening that same night at FFDG is the solo show, Everything Under the Sun, with San Francisco based Mario Martinez (Mars-1).


Age? Location? Website? And who do you think you are?

35. Portland Oregon. http://www.ryanbubnis.com/ Son, brother, cousin, husband, friend, cat owner, griller, camper, artist dude.

Describe your work a little bit.

Modern folk art inspired by life, love, death, friendship, nature, our struggles and mistakes and the mesmerizing glow of the campfire.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

Rolling Stones, Starfucker, Timber Timbre, Connan Mockasin, Boards of Canada, Camera Obscura, Club 8, Kool Keith, Blue Cheer, etc. It changes all the time.

Favorite mediums to work within?

Acrylic, ink, reclaimed house paint, old stained paper, found wood chunks, pinecones, papier-mâché.

Dream job other than artist?

Teacher or chef/owner of a restaurant.

When not creating work, you can be found doing...

Hanging out with the wifey, reading, teaching, camping, BBQing, running, walking and playing records in my garage.

How would you describe your work to a stranger who's never seen it?

I make paintings, drawings, sculptures, prints and installations. Sometimes I paint figures and sometimes I create these clusters of faces or heads using textures, patterns and line work. The work can be illustrative and sometimes it's completely abstract. They usually nod their head and say, “Oh, ok.” But they usually have no idea what I'm talking about until I show them the work.

Upcoming projects/ shows?

11.11.11 @ Fecal Face & a few other group exhibitions throughout the rest of the year. Super secret magic plans for 2012.

What gives you the right?

Um, I dunno. I just make sure no ones looking and then I just go for it. I'll worry about the consequences later.

Last words?

Trust your gut.

Kid Zoom: HOME
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 08 November 2011 15:46

Australian born, New York based artist KID ZOOM (Ian Strange). Returned home to Australia to build a massive full-scale replica of his childhood home from memory at Cockatoo Island's prestigious Turbine Hall in Sydney.

KID ZOOM : HOME is Strange's first exhibition in his homeland of Australia in 3 years and represents a multi-layered home-coming for the artist. Coming home to reflect on his origins as an isolated teen in the Australian suburbs the installation also involves a film work of Strange blowing up and then smashing 3 iconic Australian cars.

As you enter the house it becomes a gallery inside which is showing the film of the cars being destroyed.

I would drive around with friends in similar model cars with friends when I was younger, painting, getting in trouble and occasionally crashing them. The Holden Commodore is also a staple of the Australian suburbs, you'll see one parked in the driveway of nearly every outer suburbs home in Australia. For me it is a symbol of suburban culture and under-ambition. The rejection of the suburbs and the desire to simultaneously destroy and create your own environment at the same time as enjoying its safety is the contradiction I'm reacting to. I think suburban angst led me to being an angry graffiti writer when i was 16, but with this installation I've been able to return home to create a more refined work using that same emotional catalyst and perspective from having somewhat escaped. -Kid Zoom

26, San Francisco, www.ryandelahoz.com, I may never know.


Untitled, 11 x 14, Ink and paper, 2011

Describe your work a little bit.

I am inspired by what can happen to someone who breaks free from any form of oppression, physical or mental. I think that I make my best work when I am recollecting on a time where I may have felt lost or lonely and have since recovered. I play off feelings of former isolation.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

Real Estate, Women, cLOUDDEAD

Cut paper and ink

Professional skateboarder


Now I'm Lost no. 2, 10 x 10, ink on paper, 2011

How would you describe your work to a stranger who's never seen it?

Now I'm Lost, 10 x 10, ink on paper, 2011

Upcoming projects/ shows?

I am working with The Hundreds, Museums Press, StumbleUpon, Terroreyes.tv, and Little Paper Planes on different projects.

Age? Location? Website? And who do you think you are?

Still 20, Melbourne, Australia. flickr.com/bottomlesspoose. hamishi.com is incoming, I just need Kim to hurry up. I guess I'm an amalgamation of everything that's happened to me, y'know? I'm just a guy who makes stuff is all.

Describe your work a little bit.

Sure! but it's tough, to be general I try to catch the glistening balance of mapping something outside of me that is naive and omnipotent using an illustrative painterly style and maintaining hyper honesty while expressing what you wont know. Does that make me sound like a jerk? Okay little people quietly placed softly affecting each other. Who am I?

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

I've been listening to a lot of local pop stuff like Aleks and the Ramps, Milk Teddy, the Townhouses, Oscar + Martin, Megastick Fanfare, it's nice to be able to go see your favourite bands every few weeks for a couple of bucks. Then some Javelin, John Maus, Trouble Books, Cannibal Ox, KMD, Das Racist, Dan Deacon, King Khan and BBQ. I like listening to new music when I'm painting though, stops me from getting distracted. I also put on podcasts so I don't get lonely in the studio.

Favorite mediums to work within?

Gouache

Dream job other than artist?

Maybe yours? I'd really like to help all the people I believe work hard and make the stuff I love get validation and recognition. I wanted to become a fire engine, I've kind've outgrown that.

Age? Location? Website? And who do you think you are?

25. From Vancouver, Canada but currently living in Edinburgh Scotland. Artist.

Describe your work a little bit.

I use hard-edge geometric shapes and loose marks to articulate the relationship between natural and man-made structures. The result is an extraction or sample from the conglomeration of these opposite forms of environment.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

No Gold, Brasstronaut, and Radiozero podcasts for the old home. Belle and Sebastian for the new home.

Favorite mediums to work within?

My paintings are mostly acrylic and spray paint, but recently I have been using wood and glass to experiment with sculpture and installation.

Dream job other than artist?

Island caretaker

When not creating work, you can be found doing...

Hanging out with my wife and exploring my new city.

How would you describe your work to a stranger who's never seen it?

A collision of gradients, geometric shapes, and lines that come together to create a new (usually floating) entity.

Vince #1, original photo by Michelle Tran

Describe your work a little bit.

I'm a collage artist and for the last few years i have really stuck to this medium. I rarely combine images together, instead i generally work from multiple prints of the same image to produce work. So the source image is still very visible, just warped and bent out of shape. Perspective and composition can change quite drastically while still retaining the original content.

Music heavy on your playlist these days?

Dutch Techno and Ethiopian groove. And i'm always head banging wildly to the tunes of my old studio pal the NIALLIST.

Fear, from the Feelings series, collaborative project with Dan Monick

Favorite mediums to work within?

Collage forever!

Dream job other than artist?

Head of propaganda for a large nation state / Electro Ninja of vengeance.

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.

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.

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.
