Raphael Villet @Adobe Books May 28th
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 20 May 2011 11:00
Currently studying at Santa Cruz, photographer Raphael Villet stopped in FFDG a couple weeks back and mentioned his show at Adobe Books opening on May 28th. We've published Raphael's great photos in the past and dig his new work as well. Below is a taste of what you're going to see at the Adobe show. ~Oh, and the band Meat Market will be playing at the opening as well.

Bruise Cruise Music Festival
Written by Jesse Pollock   
Tuesday, 17 May 2011 13:23
Earlier this year I packed up a small bag and headed down to Miami in order to board a giant cruise ship. While this would normally be a horrifying proposition, I was comforted by the fact that Ian Svenonius and Jonathan Toubin would be along for the ride as well, along with The Strange Boys, Black Lips, Vivian Girls, Surfer Blood, Thee Oh Sees, Quintron And Miss Pussycat, Ty Segall, Turbo Fruits and Jacuzzi Boys. The first ever Bruise Cruise music festival set sail down to the Bahamas on February 25th and to be honest, I'm not even going to try and review it. John Norris, Spin, VBS and a slew of other media outlets did a bang up job already saying everything there is to say about it in the months since it took place. However, just so you get the idea, the cruise included one bass guitar being launched into the Atlantic, one successful marriage proposal during a Ty Segall set, one couple meeting, falling in love, and getting engaged, one Black Lips video being made, and two documentaries being filmed. Not to mention all the free pizza and ice cream that I ate.

This is either the most fun you have ever had for 3 days straight or probably your worst nightmare.

I have had many people (most of whom stayed on dry land) tell me their varying opinions on the cruise and the fact is; either you get it or you don't. Either way it's miles away from the same old song and dance, which is a feat in itself these days. The photos below back that story up in the sense that normally I document everything relentlessly, but this time around I barley remembered to pick up a camera. Those are the times that you can tell something worthwhile has occurred.

Pantónio and 4ink in Lisboa

Friday, 13 May 2011 10:23
Pantónio and 4ink altered some poster ads in a street of Lisboa. The next day however came with a surprise, when Amnesty International replaced them with their series of posters but left one of them untouched, which played very well with their message. Props to the paste-up guy on this one. -4zero

Cole Willsea's Abstract Beer Cans
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 10 May 2011 08:43
Got an email the other day from 24 year old Santa Cruz artist Cole Willsea as he wanted to share his awesome collection of abstract-ish interpretations of beers that he's consumed. In his words, I am very interested in exploring the intersections between art and partying (for example, the word art is inside of the word party and what does that mean)... Sounds good and your homage to the tasty beer treats is good enough in our eyes. Thanks emailing, Cole. -->colewillsea.com

212 Slaves - Huckleberry Finn's N Word
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 27 April 2011 13:34

5.5" x 8" Altered book, acrylic on paper.

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, written by Mark Twain, has been the source of much controversy over the years due to the frequent use of the word "nigger" and other racial slurs. In this piece, I've blacked out the entire text of the book, except for the 212 instances of the word. It was recently announced that the book will be re-released with all instances of the word replaced by "slave" instead.

Matt Relkin New Work
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 27 April 2011 08:00
Brooklyn based Matt Relkin emailed over this new painting. Love it. Go here for more... and if you wanna know what was going through Matt's mind in Sept '09, check our mini interview with him.

Dying Star 1- acrylic on panel, 6"x6" 2011

This piece’s completion seems especially timely in regards to the passing of Gerard Smith. Seeing so many friends dealing with such grief has been almost unbearable. Today I just wanted to tell every friend I had that I loved them and was there for them if they needed me. I can’t help but reflect on my own life and wonder if I’ve truly become a good person as a result of all that I’ve learned and experienced in my 35 years on Earth. My personal interactions with other human beings are often tinged with cynicism, sarcasm, insincerity, all as a result of my own character flaws. I wonder what would be said about me, what memories people would have of me if I were to die tomorrow? I hate to turn the tragedy of others into my own vain worries, but these thoughts are unavoidable. I believe that there is so much potential good in all people, that there is so much that can still be done in this life to make things better for all creatures. I want my actions to only contribute to the betterment of mankind, yet so much of my time is spent frivolously and selfishly. I have always been aware of my mortality, that everything could end in an instant, and I always hear that ticking in the recesses of my mind, the hands of a clock slowly but surely running out of numbers, and still I cannot say that I’ve spent my life interacting positively with others. At what point do I start to truly believe that I AM good, that when it all comes down to what I’ve done with my time, when it’s all laid out before me neatly and orderly, I’ll look at my life and know that I did the right things? -Matt Relkin

One: we like it, and two: OMG, it looks like the weather is going to begin getting awesome around the Bay Area, and that means wonderful evening bike rides out the beach. Love the summer summer times. Get on the whip and making your way across town for a sunset beer. Glorious.

"Arrangement" by Michelle Fleck
Friday, 18 April 2014 10:23

This morning we take a closer look at this beautiful painting by San Francisco based Michelle Fleck now showing at FFDG.

Arrangement measures 24"x30", acrylic and aerosol on panel - inquires: info(at)ffdg.net

Michelle Fleck is a painter living in San Francisco. Her work focuses on the relationship between man and the landscape, and the marks we leave on it. Influenced by everyday life in the city, her paintings serve as snapshots of an ongoing intersection of the natural and man-made world. She strives to make work that has a sense of relevancy in a culture driven by a need for change and newness.

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.

Statue Of A Homeless Jesus Startles A Wealthy Community
Monday, 14 April 2014 10:20

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb. The sculptor, who has an affinity for street art, created it to remind us that "We believe that that's the kind of life Jesus had," Buck says. "He was, in essence, a homeless person." ~READ ON

 

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

The Rena Bransten Gallery is packing up their 77 Geary space to make way for tech company MuleSoft

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

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.
