Ludo in Paris
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 21 December 2010 11:45
Ludo emailed over a recent Paris "co-branding" where he's changing up some bus ads. More here.

Paris is under some big snow right now but there is still some time to do something... "Greed is the new color."

Just wanted to share some pics of a little series I'm doing right now. Basically it's called "co-branding" and it's about invading bus shelters spaces with my stuff and brand them to fit in the commercial world. It started with a DelMonte custom can and still going on... ~more here || http://www.thisisludo.com/

 
Matt Relkin New Works
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 21 December 2010 10:01
Brooklyn based Matt Relkin emailed over some of his newest works.

A GATHERING- acrylic on panel- 12"X12"

THE HORSES- acrylic on panel- 12"x9"

He writes about the new work on his site: "I’ve really been trying to expand my Black Tower universe, to branch out into other realms & dimensions, to explore hidden corners of this slowly evolving world I’ve been attempting to create. I haven’t been dwelling on meanings with these new paintings, just allowing the images to take shape from simple sketches and ideas in my head. I’m coming to realize that these pieces are all connected whether I want them to be or not. I’ve been enjoying the actual act of painting, the physicality of it, allowing the planning and conceptualization to take a back-seat to the final image. There’s a new feeling of freedom in the whole process of these current works, where I’m almost subconsciously allowing the painting to materialize on it’s own, my hand & brush becoming nothing more than the vessel through which the paint applies itself to the panel."

Kid Zoom Showing Now in NYC @72 Gansevoort St
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 16 December 2010 15:18
Got this great Kid Zoom image emailed to us yesterday, and to answer some comments on the forums... the kid does create his works using just spray paint. F*cking sick!... Manuel did a studio visit w/ him last week.

Is Kid Zoom the best aerosol artist alive today? Maybe. He’s certainly the most skilled that I’ve seen, despite his young age. Combining astonishing spray can ability with classical painting technique, Kid Zoom appears to be the artist who will finally bridge the gap between gallery and street, legitimizing aerosol once and for all as a fine art medium.

Kid Zoom belongs to the second generation of graffiti, a global movement that, through the internet and other forms of media, has inspired and connected young artists, elevating the medium through competition, collaboration, technology and the law of supply and demand. The more people witness and participate in the evolution of aerosol art into something wonderous, the more the medium will propel itself into art history.

Kid Zoom, Rembrandt with a Spray Can, represents the future of this movement. - RON ENGLISH

What Wood You Say?
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 03 December 2010 12:39
It was nice to open up the gallery this morning and see the mailman had delivered this nice package from Multi Polar Projects which will custom make any word or groups of words for only $5 a character (up to 50 characters). It's the What Wood You Say - Order by Dec 6th to get your custom made wood by Christmas. We'd say a badass gift in our humble opinion. Our Fecal Face wood cutout is quite exemplary. Thanks for making our morning, Multi Polar Projects.

 
How to be a European Fisherman Photographer
Written by Corey Arnold   
Thursday, 02 December 2010 10:39
We're very excited to post another great blog from our pal and great photographer Corey Arnold who started his fishing life on the Bering Sea fishing for crab. One of the ships he worked on, The Rollo, was featured on the TV show Deadliest Catch. It was then that Corey began his life's work of documenting the lives and work of the world's fishermen.

His feature How to be an Alaskan Fisherman is on of Fecal Face's most popular, and he opens the solo show FISH-WORK Europe on Dec 2nd (through Jan 15) at Portland's Charles A. Hartman Fine Art gallery. His forthcoming book FISH-WORK: The Bering Sea can be pre ordered on his website. He'll be signing copies and showing photos @Fecal Face Dot Gallery on Feb 11, 2011. This blog documents his time recently photographing the lives of Europe's fishermen and women... and it rules.


Fish Processors in Vigo, Spain

Earlier this year, I received and email from a freelance producer in the UK asking if I was interested in a long term photo project documenting the state of the commercial fishing industry in the European Union. The job was for a coalition of sustainable fishing advocates, commercial fishing groups, and environmental organizations called Ocean2012 that are working together to reform the currently messy Common Fisheries Policy in the European Union. It was a pretty mind blowing request. I'd decided long ago that photographing the commercial fishing lifestyle around the world would be my life's work. Not my only work, but definitely a subject matter that I'd like to revisit annually in some form throughout life. Needless to say, it was the perfect match. I still can't believe my luck.


Dutch Owned Beam Trawler in the North Sea

The original plan was for me to take photographs that focus on one large and one small port in each of four countries around Europe, covering the major fishing ports and regions. I would photograph everything related to fishing including the fishermen, their families, communities, processors, shipyards, netmakers, and everyone that would be affected by changes in common fisheries policy management in Europe. My intentions were simple: Create a broad image library of the current state of the commercial fishing industry in Europe (and have a lot of fun doing it).

Say what you will about the Insane Clown Posse’s music, but you can’t deny that they have some of the most loyal and dedicated fans in the US.

Weekends w/ Rain Gear - High 5s
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 23 November 2010 10:44
Not sure what's in store this winter in terms of rain here in SF, but do know that day light savings ended and the rain has started. Freak that. That shit bummed me out. So instead of staying home and upgrading my Netflix account, we decided to splurge on some water proof gear: pants, jackets and boots. If you're completely dry, the rain makes no difference. So a trip to Sports Basement, and we had our waterproof gear. Rainy weekend? No problem.

Friday the rain began and we decided to walk across San Francisco. A couple bottles of 2 Buck Chuck in my bag, and we shoved off from the Mission, through Civic Center, past Union Square, up through China Town, into North Beach and to Fisherman's Warf... On Saturday we did our part in helping the struggling state parks with some camping at China Camp in Marin. It stormed like crazy with lightning and hail, but who cares. The discounted rain gear did the trick. We stayed 100% dry and had an awesome time. Highly recommend getting some rain gear this year. ~photos

Lower Haight Murals
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 09 November 2010 16:11
Caught wind of some murals going up just a couple blocks from Fecal Face. Jeremy Fish, Mars-1, Doze Green, NOME, PNUT, Hugh Leeman, Romanowski, and others are in the middle of creating as each burst of rain shuts down production.

Jeremy Fish left & Ursula Xanthe Young (right)

Doze Green and NOME working on his section.

Our understanding is that someone in charge of the property contacted Lower Haters about getting some artists together to cover these walls since it doesn't look like the building will be rented anytime soon. Let's beautify the neighborhood.

Next time you're heading up Haight St and at the intersection of Haight and Laguna, look around. Can't miss them. !~check all the photos.

Jeremy Fish working... Mentioned something about a large sculpture. Be on the look out.

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

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.

Jeremy Fish Opening a Solo Show in August at FFDG
Tuesday, 15 April 2014 09:33

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

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

Speaking of Ocean Beach, if you know, you know, but if you don't... it's not what the average american thinks of when thinking of a California Beach (missing 14 yr. old yesterday). Can't believe we used to drunk naked swim at 3am in the dead if winter... being surfers probably helped us not dying.

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.
