David Choe - 10yrs of Fecal Face
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 18 August 2010 11:46
Everyday leading up to Fecal Face's 10 Year Anniversary Show, opening Friday, September 10th @The Luggage Store (after party @Mezzanine 9-2am), we'll be adding short interviews with artists participating.

David Choe is damn close to being one of the first artists we featured on Fecal Face many years ago. We've followed his life and career from his time in a Japanese jail up to his recent massive show in Beverly Hills. Hell, we've tried betting a dead bat with David while playing poker in Utah (thanks, Scion). His energy and work levels are always high with a fluid style that all of us would die for but which flows naturally from this San Jose native. It's an honor to know Dave and to have him participate in our 10 year show.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

My work has gotten exponentially worse, sloppier, obnoxious, contrived, pitiful, soulless, homoeroticy-er and one dimensional as time spans

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

When you first heard of Fecal Face what did you think about it?

How has Fecal Face Dot Com been a part of your life and/or career?

I lost Jeremy Fish’s # awhile back, so anytime I want to see what my old friend is up to, I check FF, I love looking at Tod Seelie photos every week up there, that guy is cool. Basically without fecalface I wouldn’t know which artists to rip off. Thanks, dudes.

Henry Gunderson - 10yrs of Fecal Face

Everyday leading up to Fecal Face's 10 Year Anniversary Show, opening Friday, September 10th @The Luggage Store (after party @Mezzanine 9-2am), we'll be adding short interviews with artists participating.

Today's is from SFAI student Henry Gunderson who had his first solo show @FFDG last year with raging success. His work is constantly morphing as he explores interesting themes and subjects but always within his own unique voice. Everyday we're viewing works from a lot of younger artists who inspirations are fairly obvious. Refreshingly, Henry's perspective is very much his own. Delighted to have him in the incredible lineup.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

I think I was in 5th grade making lego art and flying my bicycle off jumps.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

My work is considered art now.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

I thought I would have a robo-girlfriend with a facebook ipad.

When you first heard of Fecal Face what did you think about it?

I think I first stumbled upon it when I was surfing the web and I saw a link to Fecal Face. I thought hey that sounds cool and I clicked on it.

How has Fecal Face Dot Com been a part of your life and/or career?

John and Jessica put my work on Fecal Face, and I had my first solo show with Fecal Face. Fecal Face has been real good to me. Thanks Fecal Face!

Going through some old Fecal Face photos and came across this show we did back in December 2002 featuring work from Chris Duncan and Mat O'Brien. We were very excited about this one, and 8 years later, it still comes off strong... Things got exciting when Sonny Smith and Hightower played the after party. ~photos

Monday, 16 August 2010 15:00
We continue interviews with artists in Fecal Face's 10 Year Anniversary Show opening September 10th @The Luggage Store with an after party @Mezzanine following right after w/ bands and DJs...

Richard Colman was born in 1976 and grew up in Bethesda, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C. Colman graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts, in 2002. He has exhibited extensively throughout the world in solo and group exhibitions including Krets, Malmo Sweeden, V1 Gallery, Copenhagen, Denmark, Merry Karnowsky Gallery, Los Angeles, Union Gallery, London, UK and ARKEN Museum Of Modern Art, Denmark.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

Trying to stay out of trouble.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

It's more focused.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

Flying cars and food in pill form.

When you first heard of Fecal Face what did you think about it?

I didn't own a computer for a long time so the first time I heard of it was when you guys contacted me for an interview and I thought you were nice.

Ian Francis - 10 yrs. of Fecal Face
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 13 August 2010 12:29
We continue interviews with artists in Fecal Face's 10 Year Anniversary Show opening September 10th @The Luggage Store with an after party @Mezzanine following right after w/ bands and DJs... Ian Francis is a London based artist who shows at Lazarides Gallery with the now infamous Banksy. We've been following Ian's work for years and have always been a fan. It's an honor to have him included in our 10 Yr. show.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

In the year 2000 I was in university studying illustration. I was terrible at illustration - I basically just wanted to do my own work, had no interest in following a brief, and I struggle with deadlines that are shorter than a couple of months - but I had no idea at the time that there were galleries who would show the kind of work that I wanted to do. Luckily the course I was on had a pretty broad interpretation of what illustration was. I think actually for the most part I was either getting drunk or sitting around with my friends drinking coffee, procrastinating and having pretentious conversations about artwork without really doing much.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

Over the last 10 years my work has changed quite a bit, particularly in the way I actually make pieces. Back in university I was doing mixed media work with a lot more collage, messing around with photocopiers and gluing things on to boards. The first few years after I graduated I was scanning bits of drawings and paintings I'd done into the computer and layering things together in Photoshop. For the last four or five years I've switched to doing mixed media work straight on canvas, primarily painting in acrylic or oil. Although the process has changed quite a lot, I think I'd have been happy back then with where my work has ended up conceptually and stylistically. I think having worked in various different ways helps what I do now.

What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

I've got no idea, I always like idly speculating about The Future, but I can't remember what I thought back then.

Jeff Soto - 10yrs of Fecal Face
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 12 August 2010 12:00
From now until Fecal Face's 10 Year Anniversay Show (opening September 10th @The Luggage Store) we're going to be posting short interviews with the artists participating in it. The first is from LA's Jeff Soto whose been on Fecal Face from way back when and whose work we've always loved. Be sure to click the image to read the entire interview.

What were you up to in the year 2000?

I was still in art college, I was 25. Oh so young! I had my own car for the first time in my life, so my girlfriend and I got to explore a bit. Things I remember vividly- art openings in L.A., cactus hunting in the Mohave, and I was doing some of my last graffiti art for a decade. Art college stuff, you know.. and getting started in my career.

How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

I feel like right now I'm working on the types of paintings I wanted to make in 2000 but hadn't yet acquired the know-how. In the last decade I went through a more "crafty" experimental stage, making tons of small pieces, I tried stenciling, collage, drippiness, and a bunch of different techniques. At some point it all felt like visual gimmicks to me, so I began to just get back to pure painting the last couple of years and it feels great.

Electric Windows - Beacon, NY
Written by Bill Dunlap   
Tuesday, 10 August 2010 12:35
I was in Beacon, NY at the end of July for Electric Windows, an event where artists painted in the streets on big sheets of vinyl-ish stuff. Then the final pieces were hung on the exterior of an old building. It was a great event. I met lots of great artists, and ate good vegan Pad Thai. Beacon is a nice town. You should have a look. -Bill Dunlap

Beacon, New York - On Saturday July 31st 2010, OPEN SPACE gallery and Burlock Home presented Electric Windows 2010. 30 artists will converge in Beacon, NY to create live artwork and have their work installed on the exterior of a 19th century factory building. Electric Windows draws its name from the former electric blanket factory at the foot of Mount Beacon that will act as the backdrop for the event.

Artists included Big Foot, Buxtonia, BoogieRez, Cern, Chor Boogie, Chris Stain, Chris Yormick, Depoe, Elbow Toe, Elia Gurna, Ellis G, Erik Otto, Eugene Good, Faust, Gaia, Joe Iurato, Kid Zoom, Mr Kiji, Logan Hicks, Lotem & Aviv, Michael De Feo, Paper Monster, Peat Wollaeger, Rick Price, Ron English, Ryan Bubnis, Ryan Williams, Skewville, and thundercut

Art Hustle - Artist Trading Cards
Written by Van Edwards   
Thursday, 29 July 2010 10:04

    Just like baseball cards from the 60s-80s, these chipboard card stock trading cards wrapped in and the much-loved wax paper come equipped with waxy bubble gum and each pack is filled with cards featuring work by a number of artists. I was surprised that besides a few, I had little idea who these people were (complete roster here). Seems a majority of artists are involved in the art toy scene/ comic influenced... I'm not much of a collector of stuff (small apartment) and not into the whole art toy thing, but maybe you are. For what they are, they do a good job. They're just like classic baseball cards I collected as a kid. Might be more interested if there were more artists I was familiar with, but again, they may be artists you know and enjoy and you might be looking for more kitsch to collect.

Boxes, which include 36 packs of cards, run $126 and available here

Faile in Lisbon, Portugal
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 21 July 2010 10:13
Portugal Arte 10 is a new biennial show of contemporary art in Lisbon. One of the most spectacular works on display is Temple (2010), a site-specific environment by the Brooklyn-based artist collective FAILE (Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller).


Above photos via dflektor.com

FAILE’s Temple is a full-scale church in ruins in Praça dos Restauradores Square, one of the major squares in the center of Lisbon, Portugal. For this installation, FAILE used both the typical motifs they use in their work and styles and material that are typical for Lisbon, such as the ceramic tiles. The building also features wrought iron gating and concrete relief work, from local and foreign manufacturers, and familiar FAILE images, such as the barking dog logo that appear in the reliefs, and a white, blue, and gold color palette as a reference to the Portugese landscape. -Read More

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.

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.
