Klea McKenna's Paper Airplanes
Written by Nikki Grattan   
Friday, 24 June 2011 13:25
When my friend, photographer Klea McKenna, invited me to help her out for a day on her latest project, I quickly said yes. I knew she was bringing together a bit of local history, a lens-less camera, a wild landscape, and 12 hours of changing light. But I didn’t think too much about what exactly the day would entail, I just thought it’d be fun and out of the ordinary. I really had no idea what I was getting myself into.

Written by Nikki Grattan

Klea exposing a paper airplane

Klea was working on the second project in her Paper Airplanes series, a photographic installation that would be comprised of 57 paper airplanes folded out of color photographic paper installed in a giant triangle. The project is based on and inspired by a bit of local history— during WWII, soldiers were deployed to man several anti-aircraft lookout posts along the Marin and Sonoma coast. All day and all night these soldiers looked west, watching the sky and horizon over the Pacific Ocean for signs of enemy planes. But they saw no enemy planes, instead they only witnessed the light change and watched hundreds of sunsets.

The project is a kind of performative photographic act that places Klea in the position of the soldiers who guarded the coastline and interprets their prolonged observation of the sky into an abstract visual art form. So, the plan for the day was that Klea would expose the paper airplanes on site at the anti-aircraft lookout post at Tennessee Cove in Marin Headlands. Beginning at dawn and ending at dusk, she would expose one plane every 10 minutes using camera made from a large biscuit tin. My job would be to help her fold the photographic paper into airplane shapes in portable dark bags, while she loaded them into the camera, and then exposed and unloaded them.

Nothing can make your day even better when a package arrives with free goods.

The Vans tape ruined the surprise.

3 pairs? Thanks VANS CALIFORNIA COLLECTION for sending out some shoes.

Now I can sail straight to the skate park without changing shoes. How do they match up with some Sperry top siders?

Ever look at shoes and can tell that they'll look even better after they get some serious wear?! That's a sign of a good shoe.

Aaaaaa, that nerdy new shoe look.

Pretty sure these leather beauties take top prize. Thanks for the love, VANS! Who's next? I could use a sports car.

Zoltron & The 18th St. Forum
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 21 June 2011 10:00

Zoltron emailed over some photos and text of how his wheat pasted Ronald took on a life of its own over the course of a couple weeks. His words below.

Somehow I found myself involved in a spontaneous, public art project that organically unfolded over the last couple of weeks in sf.

For the hell of it, I was drawing a famous clown named Ronald (as a junky villain derelict,) but somewhere along the way, I saw a glint of compassion in his eyes. So the drawing ended up showing Ron suddenly caught in an existential crisis of sorts... Like he just realized that he was solely responsible for the death of hundreds of millions of cows. Maybe he suddenly understood that he was fueling massive rainforest destruction and undeniably accountable for child obesity and onset adolescent diabetes.

So I drew him, printed him out, mixed up some pigment and painted on some paper. Then I pasted him up in a foodie district in the mission. The following photographs were taken over the next 2 weeks.

the aging clown experiences an unexpected moment of clarity.

a few days later, someone (equipped with at least 4 colors of aerosol) wasn't amused. "fuck you, hipster scum." Right on point, oh disgruntled youth.

a public forum concluded that it was obviously the work of a certain masked villain. (humburglar was later arrested for defacing public art)

Only hipsters use words like "Hipster."

a few days later, a stencil party ensues.

followed by a confirmed metric fuckton of unadorned radness.

and finally.... according to the local shopkeep, the entire wall is "archived for historical significance." ..

Join us next week, as we discuss vegan soy lattes and their effect on the youth of America. - Zoltron

Mel Kadel & Travis Millard Opening Saturday
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 09 June 2011 16:47
Los Angeles based Travis Millard and Mel Kadel will be showing individual and collabrative works at FFDG with an opening reception Saturday, June 11, 2011 (7-10pm). Both artists will be present and beer & wine served as usual.

Since Mel Kadel's last show at FFDG in 2009, her work has become much more layered. The thick layers of hand cut paper, with foregrounds and backgrounds, are reminiscent of engravings. The technique has added dimension to the pieces and seems to add to the strength of the characters and their surroundings. The work as a whole communicates interconnectedness and balance. The character is determined as usual, with patterns and obstacles surrounding her adventure.

Travis Millard's drawings included in the show explore a variety of themes, including waking dream states, ultra violence, repetitive movements and other oddities of the imaginative landscape. Ultimately, the work seeks to find respite in humor and peace through drawing from a host of modern personal anxieties.

Also on display will be Travis Millard's ghost sculpture project which is an experiment from the ground up. Unfamiliar with the process of roto-casting and minimal sculpture experience, this was achieved through trial and error, and the help of trusted associates. The result is an edition of 50 ghost sculptures and a video produced with the efforts of photographer Theo Jemison, animator Jim Dirschberger, and music by El-P.

Mel Kadel - Water Island, 22" x 30", pen, ink, and collage on paper

Travis Millard - Applewood Turnaround, 10" x 8", ink on paper

About Mel Kadel
Mel Kadel, born in 1973, grew up in Pennsylvania suburbs and graduated with a B.F.A. from Moore College of Art & Design in 1997.

Mel has been living and working in Los Angeles, CA. for the last 12 years, starting out showing drawings in small cafes. Now her work has been exhibited extensively all over the U.S. and abroad. Kadel has created a visual narrative that communicates the idea that we are all part of a large system, whether recognized or not.

About Travis Millard
Travis Millard, born in 1975, grew up in Olathe, Kansas and founded the Fudge Factory Comics operation in 1997, producing small run drawing zines, prints, comics, and assorted ephemera .

Jeremy Fish in NYC June 21st
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 07 June 2011 15:00
Jeremy Fish has been working his ass off for this show opening up @Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC on June 21st. Check back with Fecal Face later in the week for a studio visit we did with him.

Jeremy Fish's art naturally lends itself to storytelling. In an unabashed celebration of this folk art form, 'Listen and Learn' puts stories and storytellers front and center as Fish demonstrates the enduring appeal of storytelling in popular culture. The exhibition features assorted tales from a wide swath of contemporary life—including from artists, skateboarders, rappers, athletes, a stripper, a cop, and a historian—which Fish has reinterpreted in lovingly realized painted works.

For this impressive project, Fish gathered a selection of friends and acquaintances whose rich lives have engendered no end of interesting tales. Most prominent among them is rapper/producer/actor Snoop Dogg, who recounts a story from childhood. In the tale, Snoop is among a select group of neighborhood kids to be bussed to a brand new, highly touted elementary school. Right off, Snoop gets into trouble when he allegedly exposes himself to a female student in the lunch line. The rapper's account of the principal's reprimand displays his undisputed gift for storytelling and turning naughty content into witty word games with a humorous twist. In 'Pulled Out My Worm', Fish's painted rendition of the tale, these story elements are incorporated into a baroque-style mirror image of two dog silhouettes, adorned with scrolling filigree, cartoon characters from an American childhood, and neighborhood identifiers.

See Fish's complete story this month at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC. 'Listen and Learn' opens to the public Tuesday June 21st with an opening reception party on Thursday June 23rd from 6-9pm.

Contemporary Urban Bird Houses
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 06 June 2011 12:03
Got an email from Brooklyn based XAM, a former architecture student and 2009 graduate from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, who creates these awesome contemporary urban bird houses equipped with passive ventilation systems, solar panels, LED porch lights to attract insects and "green roofs". The houses pack flat, assemble like a 3-D puzzle and hang from city signage. They attract Wrens, Swallows, Warblers and many other small birds. We asked him what inspired him to create these awesome little feathered homes.

I am a former architecture student with a history in graffiti and street art. I like the idea of building functional objects to scale that can embody similar rules of that of architecture. I also like the idea of participation in art. The viewer participates on a level that questions morality. The units are illegally placed, but are serving a function that many benefit from. I don't bolt them to the signs I simply hang them and if you feel the units don't belong amongst the clutter of city signage, then take them down. I like to play with the idea that street art is ephemeral and it is up to society to decide the lifespan of the units. Also attached to the back of every unit is a QR code that when scanned lists a number of ways we benefit from birds in the urban environment. I don't promote people taking them down, but I would like them to question their reasoning and see if it goes beyond 'well it's illegal'.

CSD DWELLING UNIT 2.0 - Equipped with a "green roof" system that acts as insulation. The unit also has a birdhouse on one side and a food dispenser on the other. There is an adjoining wall that allows the residents to eat from inside the dwelling rather than flying to the other side to feed. This unit straddles city signs.

Stops included Vermillion, SD, Bellingham, WA, Madison, WI, Jacksonville. FL, St. Louis, MO, Kansas City, MO, Emporia Kansas, Wichita, KA, Omaha, NE, Lubbock, TX, and Odessa, TX.

This adventure involved sacrificial burnings, fortune telling pinatas, overrun streets, metal bands, trains, ufo's, chupakabras, viking ships, and blood ice castles. Here is a small taste of the chaos.

ROA @White Walls (video)
Written by Van Edwards   
Friday, 27 May 2011 14:28

White Walls Gallery - San Francisco || April 9- May 7, 2011 || Street artist ROA got his start by painting intriguing murals of animals in hidden places – underneath bridges and on walls that strayed from the beaten path. A darling of the underground street art scene, photos of his work regularly appear on Vandalog, Brooklyn Street Art, Wooster Collective, Unurth, and a fury of London newspapers and blogs running to his defense when a street piece he did in Hackney faced removal late last year. ROA is earnestly repopulating the cityscape with animals, as a way to have them re-enter the contemporary landscape that was once theirs. With a style all his own.

New Paintings by Ian Shults
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 24 May 2011 16:57
Ian Shults' (Austin, TX) paintings forge fine art and the profane to tell sordid tales of debauchery with a sly sense of humor. His paintings recall a bygone era when the sheen of the American Dream dulled, and subversive behavior of illicit drugs and kinky benders were swept under the rug.

Ian emailed over a few recent paintings that feel more painterly than his earlier works that resonated a bit of a found photograph broken down in Photoshop feel. Nice direction with the newer works, Ian. Dig it.

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.

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.
