Mars-1 @Jonathan Levine NYC
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 25 May 2011 12:00
San Francisco based Mario Martinez (Mars-1) is in NYC preparing for his show Afterglow which opens tomorrow (5/26) at Jonathan Levine Gallery. Looking good. If you're in that part of the world, get to the show. It's going to be amazing.

Mars-1 working on a massive painting... Remember this one?!

 
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.

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 14:23
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 11:23
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 09:43
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 14:34

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 09:00
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.

SF Giants' World Series Trophy & DLX

I'm not sure how many people are lucky enough to have The San Francisco Giants 3 World Series trophies put on display at their work for the company's employees to enjoy during their lunch break, but that's what happened the other day at Deluxe. So great.

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

5 new wonderful large-scale paintings on wood panel are available. visit: www.ffdg.net


ClipODay II: Needles & Pens 11 Years!!

Congrats on our buddies at Needles and Pens on being open and rad for 11 years now. Mission Local did this little short video featuring Breezy giving a little heads up on what Needles and Pens is all about.


BANDES DE PUB / STRIP BOX

In a filmmaker's thinking, we wish more videos were done in this style. Too much editing and music with a lacking in actual content. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.


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.
