RIPO emailed over this recent mural he did on a side of a library in Barcelona using rollers and a fire extinguisher. "WORD" is quite apt for a library.

Sculptures by Don Porcella
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 20 October 2011 09:24

A few images from NYC based (via Bay Area) based artist Don Porcella whose woven pipe cleaner sculptures are showing at the non-profit space Art Connects New York through Oct 28th.

Don Porcella is an artist living and working in New York City who utilizes humble materials in innovative ways to craft a unique and humorous commentary on the human condition.

Born and raised in Modesto, California, Don Porcella’s artwork has been exhibited at galleries in New York City, Berlin, Paris, Copenhagen, East Hampton, Washington D.C., Miami and San Francisco. Porcella’s art has been reviewed in the New York Times, NY ARTS, Fiber Arts Magazine, Chelsea Now, San Francisco Magazine and the Village Voice to name a few. He has a BA in Psychology from the University of California at San Diego, a BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts and an MFA from Hunter College in New York. His art is included in some of the world’s best art collections.

Drawing from his own imagery of the suburban and his interest in folk art, cartoons, and science fiction, Porcella's work allows the subjective and strange to penetrate humorous representations of a wildly imaginative reality.

Unpiano Releases Arthur Pollock Friday
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 17 October 2011 15:07

Unpiano releases a new book featuring a collection of photos by long time Boston Herald news photographer, Arthur Pollock, at SF Camera Work (657 Mission St) here in SF with a show featuring photos from the book this Friday Oct 21 (5–9pm)

Arthur Pollock happens to be the father of Jesse Pollock, a long time contributor to Fecal Face and also the owner of Unpiano Books. Jesse gave us a copy of the book last week which runs 184 pages spanning Arthur's 50 year career as a photo-journalist.

Printed on high quality paper, this beautifully bound book is relaxing to flip through- capturing many moods of human beings living on planet earth and more precisely living in or around Boston. Cops busting hippie thugs. Musicians jammin out in a spirited haze. People relaxing on the beach during a heat wave. Youngsters getting their protest on. There is no one theme to the book, expect possibly that humans do many different things while living in and around Boston. It's an enjoyable book to flip through. Every page offers another unique unexpected turn as seen through the eye of a hard working talented news photographer. [soon available on Upiano's site for $30]

Too Big to Fail
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 17 October 2011 11:09

NY based Illustrator Anthony Freda emailed over his latest "Too Big to Fail" which seems quite fitting in these wonderful economic times.

According to this theory, certain financial institutions are so large and so interconnected that their failure will be disastrous to an economy. Proponents of this theory believe that these institutions should become recipients of beneficial financial and economic policies from governments or central banks to keep them alive. It is thought that companies that fall into this category take positions that are high-risk, as they are able to leverage these risks based on the policy preference they receive. The term has emerged as prominent in public discourse since the 2007–2010 global financial crisis.

The book includes hundreds of plates and quotes from artists across the globe and introductory statements by Shepard Fairey, FAILE, Wooster Collective - Marc and Sara Schiller and Tristan Manco.

"I first encountered ABOVE’s art on the streets of Paris in early 2003. His large-scale trademark arrows were painted on roll down gates, trucks and storefronts with impressive coverage throughout the city. ABOVE is extraordinarily driven. To paraphrase Radiohead, “ambition can make you look pretty ugly,” but in ABOVE’s case, his ambition makes the streets look very engaging. I am very impressed by ABOVE’s diligence, but after I got to know him and his artwork more, I began to realize that his output is not evidence of selfish ego, but of a lust for life, a utopian life, where his generosity, and curiosity, and his pursuit of creativity and social-consciousness have led him around the world making more friends than enemies.

ABOVE made the time to act as tour guide for me and my wife and our two young daughters in a city he knows well and we didn’t. The gesture made me greatly value ABOVE’s friendship and reinforced my belief that what you give is what you get. The Karma Police are not coming for ABOVE even if the police vandal squad is." ---Shepard Fairey, Los Angeles, California


From WIKI (born circa 1981) has been creating public art since 1995. ABOVE  is an international contemporary street artist who keeps his identity concealed and is widely known for his multi-layer/full color social and political stencils, spinning wooden "arrow mobile" installations, and large mural "word play" paintings. ABOVE started traditional graffiti of tagging freight trains in California in 1995. ABOVE moved to Paris at the age of 19 where he started painting his trademark arrow (pointing above) all around the city. Since then ABOVE has been consistently traveling around the world doing many large self-financed "tours" with each tour exploring a new medium or style of artworks. ABOVE has been successful in putting his street artworks in over 90 cities in 60 different countries around the globe. 

Fishing With My Dad
Written by Corey Arnold   
Wednesday, 12 October 2011 15:31

I grew up in Southern California in the little suburb of Vista. My dad grew avocados and tropical plants for money, so when I wasn't spending weekends planting or picking fruit, we were usually at sea sport fishing for mako, bonito, yellowtail, dorado, and rockfish or casting in lakes all over the west. My father's obsession with fish rubbed off on me and I quickly became known as "the fisherman" in elementary school. I lugged around a huge shark trolling rod for halloween many years in a row, and would often bring odd sea creatures and baby sharks to class for show and tell. My dad is also partially responsible for my photography habit. Every fishing trip of my life was meticulously documented, or at least the catch of the day was recorded. I've recently been thumbing throw those old photographs with nostalgia. Not only are they a record of how much more fashionable I was in the 80's, they are also telling of how my early exposure to nature, the sea, and the endless quest to find fish helped solidify my fate as both photographer and commercial fisherman.

I've compiled some of the most compelling images into a series called "Fishing with My Dad 1978-1995". The images were shot by either my father or myself, as we would take turns photographing each other holding our catch. Nazraeli Press recently published a small book of these images as part of their One Picture Book Series #69 which includes an original signed print and lives in a limited edition of 500. You can watch a little youtube video of the book HERE

A solo exhibition of the images will open this Saturday, October 15th, 6-10pm at Ampersand Gallery and Fine Books in Portland, Oregon. My dad and I will be present. Hope to see you there!

Whilst relaxing with the family back in Chicago I thought I'd see what was what artwise in the city. Turns out there was a shitton- I missed an Evan Hecox show and this dood speaking (D'OH) - Max Kauffman

Here's some of what I did catch:

Robert Hardgrave had an amazing new show at Ec Gallery

Randomly I found a Cody Hudson had a show at Andrew Rafacz, few blocks from the parents place... Not what I expected, but pretty rad.

Oakland based artist John Casey just opened Hands and Pants over at Swarm Gallery last Saturday, Oct 1st. We meant to add this preview last week, but the fire kept us pretty busy away from updating the site. In any case, check out these great works. A solid group of artists John collaborated with.

Hands & Pants is a broader collaborative venture, employing over 40 of John's artist peers. John drew either hands or pants (blue-jean-clad waist-down shod figures) or both, in his simple pen-and-ink style on 8"x10" Bristol paper. An invited artist was given the hands and/or pants and asked to complete the figure in any way the artist saw fit.

"Black Light", Pencil on Panel, 36"x48", 2011

"Blowing Smoke", Pencil on Panel, 14"x11", 2011

We're happy to report that FFDG will open at a temporary gallery space located at 248 Clement St @4th on Thursday, November 10th. We will be there until either 248 Fillmore is repaired and we can move back or if Fillmore is down for good and we need to find a new permanent home.

FFDG's temporary gallery space located at 248 Clement St. since recently displaced by the Haight & Fillmore fire last week.

Interesting that we're moving from 248 Fillmore to 248 Clement. Something about the number 248, we guess.

Mark your calendar for Thursday, November 10th when we open a solo show from Mario Martinez (Mars-1).

Julia Kim Smith's With Banksy
Written by Alyssa Perry   
Friday, 30 September 2011 10:38

Baltimore-based conceptual artist, Julia Kim Smith work focuses on the issues of identity, memory, and the artistic, social, and political landscape. Her recent photo series WITH BANKSY does just that- punking the elusive street-artist as she depicts herself doing daily tasks around the house while he just hangs out doing things like reading JUXTAPOZ magazine featuring Ed Hardy and drinking a Tesco beer. The satirical irony is on point. Check out this photo project along with her print series, OBEY TM and video collaboration with David Beadouin, EVER AFTER 9/11 at Seoul’s unique art space, Platoon Kunsthalle running from September 19 to September 30.

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

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

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.

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.


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.

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

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.
