Free Fridayz: Total Vacation Mode
    Friday, 12 August 2011 /// Written by Trippe

Everyone's on vacation. You're most likely checking Fecal Face from your IPad on a beach in the middle of the Bahamas sipping on a drink that has an umbrella sticking out of it while crabs nibble at your toes. Is it warm and beautiful? Are there tropical birds shitting on your shoulder? I wouldn't know.

We walk up and down Haight Street every day coming and going from Fecal Face. It's so easy to spot the tourists with their maps out, cameras hanging on their chests casually strolling up to Haight and Ashbury. On those beautiful crisp mornings, they make me wish I was in total vacation mode. I would buy them a crepe and an ice cream sandwich in appreciation.

Free Fridayz: Friggen Fraggen
    Friday, 17 June 2011 /// Written by Ashley Taylor

     I think it would be a great time to publicly thank Ashley Taylor who puts together Free Fridayz here at Fecal Face every week. Not only does she do that, but she also has spent a serious amount of Saturdays gallery sitting at the old Gough St. space while we played in the sunshine.

Friggen Fraggen theme submitted by Travis Gillan (Denver, CO).
     What you should know about Ashley is that she takes wonderful photos. Check her site and see for yourself: 4blankwalls.com

     So how about a short rant unrelated to how rad Ashley is. In fact, the rant will have nothing to do with Ashley at all. It'll just be written under the public thank you and your photos are rad words I wrote above. Maybe it would be best if I started a new paragraph to visually separate as well.

     Did you know that The Animal Control and Welfare Commission here in San Francisco recommends that the city ban the sale of tropical fish and gold fish?.

     Have you ever eaten a gold fish? I ate 3 in one night (I need to dig up the footage). 4 other Howard House residents downed the lil' guys too. This is no rant. It's a silly state of fact.

     If you must, don't chew. Best with a large glass of water. -Trippe



Free Fridayz: Retarded Fish
    Friday, 03 June 2011 /// Written by Ashley Taylor

Submission by Trav Walker (Minneapolis, MN)
   It's going to rain this weekend here in San Francisco... Like record breaking amounts of rain. What's up with that shit?! It hasn't rained this much since like 1864 or something.

   And we had the whole weekend off to play as well. That's rare. We normally have to work on Saturdays, but because we're between shows, it's a 2 day weekend but you know what? We're just going to work... Well, at least on Saturday. Maybe the rain will break on Sunday... That's the goal.

   Tonight, we're going to put on rain gear, grab a bottle of wine and walk around San Francisco and pretend we're on vacation in Alaska. -Trippe



Free Fridayz: Favorite Band/ Musician
    Friday, 20 May 2011 /// Written by Ashley Taylor

Entry from Junkyard Sam
Fudge this noise, it's freakin' Friday, and we've had a crazy ass few months. Sometimes you gotta bail from work early and go for bike ride. The weather is starting to get nice and fresh air is in dire need.

You know what's a lot of fun? Ride across the Golden Gate Bridge and then take the ferry home. Don't buy the alcohol on the boat. It's expensive. Bring your own. They don't care, but don't tell them Fecal Face told you to do it. They might get upset. -Trippe



Free Fridayz: Stupid Free Fridayz
    Friday, 13 May 2011 /// Written by Ashley Taylor

So yes, the voting will remain the same. You need to login in order for your vote to count, but as many of you have suggested, it seems that some of the votes are less than honest. A solution suggested by many of you is to start a discussion within the comments throughout the week, and in the end, Fecal Face should choose the winner considering your votes and comments. Sound good? Is Free Fridayz still totally Stupid? You decide.

<-- SHINE submitted this gem.



Stupid is as Stupid Does
    Wednesday, 11 May 2011 /// Written by Trippe

We take forever getting prizes mailed out. Everyone cheats with the voting system. It's meant to be a weekly contest, but takes Fecal like forever to get a new one up... STUPID FREE FRIDAYZ <-- is this week's theme, and it WILL be going live this Friday and we WILL be giving away a Michael Sieben print... Yeah right, heard that before.

Email your Stupid Free Fridayz themed drawing to freefridayz (at) fecalface.com like Greg Bemis of Portland, OR has before... this Friday.


Free Fridayz: Art Walk
    Saturday, 23 April 2011 /// Written by Ashley Taylor

Walk. View art and music. Drink a beer. Eat a sandwich. High five a couple friends. Try not to fall. Enjoy the locals. Smell the air. Toast of the town you are... What are you doing later? Maybe we should get some beers and play music... Or we could just stay here and drink some more... Or, go home and light a tree on fire. Stand back and admire your skill at lighting matches. Maybe I'll smoke next to the fire and wonder what would have happened if you said hello to that cute girl who like was totally checking you out. Your friend totally saw it, but you're always a little scared... Well, here we are now. Maybe put the fire out and crash. Listen to your favorite album while making a piece of toast and think about going surfing tomorrow morning. That'll feel nice.

Free Fridayz: Haight St
    Friday, 25 March 2011 /// Written by Ashley Taylor

Man, it's been a month since the last time we added a Free Fridayz?! Well, it's been a crazy month with moving the gallery and all... In any case, here's this week's Free Fridayz.

Next week's theme to get your drawings in for? Well, that would be NASAL ISSUES... My nose is acting up and I wanna see drawings explaining what the hell is wrong with it. Should be a grand Free Fridayz next week... But this week is down right funky as well. I mean, we have Haight St. One of the things our grand city is known for. Damn hippies peace signing it up and how the street has changed since the summer of love. All that's missing is a Crazy Shirts. Already have those crazy sexy legs.

Free Fridayz: Movin' On Up
    Saturday, 26 February 2011 /// Written by Ashley Taylor

We are so damn excited about moving FFDG next week that this week's Free Fridayz theme is: MOVIN' ON UP.

Many great entries this week. You wanna know a secret? It takes two to tango, and I never learned how to dance... Dance? May I have your hand for this second in time? But why you ask?... I don't know but when we were on our way home last night we ran into your sister and instead of going home we stayed out drinking. So today we are slow. Slow in the brain and I'm looking forward to getting a beer which I may in fact do at around 5 or so. In the meantime, I'm going to Caffe Trieste for another cup of coffee. A small half caffeinated one would work best. I don't wanna get all shaky AND I don't wanna have disturbed sleep tonight. Need to be fresh on Monday. We're moving the gallery on Tuesday and the week is going to be a busy one... See what just happened? Now we've come 360 and are back to my point... We're moving the gallery. UP? Well, the elevation is in fact UP and next door neighbor will be Upper Playground and their initials and U.P. Oh how apt for you? --> I need to urinate as well.



Free Fridayz: Catch Air
    Friday, 04 February 2011 /// Written by Ashley Taylor

Catching air is something that only select few can fully comprehend. All those considering must be mindful of caution like feeble minded aspects to get your teeth caught in... Caught air? Catch air on your foot and try walking like that for a solid week... I bet that would be extremely difficult. Ever drop in on vert? The first time I did was in Ocean City, Maryland like in 1988 and I ate shit. In fact, my front foot never touched the board, but instead went right over the top and I proceeded to tumble down the ramp... and it was freakin' hot. They used to cook eggs on that thing on hot days. No joke. Metal vert ramp like 14 feet tall that would get hot enough to cook eggs on... The best part was that they older dudes who coached me to eat shit we're hyped that I went for it... It didn't hurt too bad in the end, and I gained the respect of the older skaters... Or I should say that I entertained them for 10 minutes in one horrific blow... As I got older I loved making the little ones drop in. Good laughs but you gotta pay your dues. You gotta prove that you have enough balls to go for it. CATCH AIR!

Ryan De La Hoz at Seattle's Flatcolor
Tuesday, 22 April 2014 10:52

SEATTLE --- San Francisco based Ryan De La Hoz opens a show of new works at Flat Color on May 1st. We love Ryan's work and have shown it many times throughout the years. Ryan will be also showing at LA - Juxtapoz Psychedelic Show, The Well, LA, CA April 26th 2014 - SF - Paper Cuts, Spoke Art, SF, CA May 3rd 2014

Working in unconventional mediums such as woven blankets, puzzles, and faux marble, De La Hoz has pioneered an innovative style in a class of its own. Collages of white noise, flowers and tie-dye are all hand cut and assembled to create mystic portals of intrigue. Heavily influenced by themes of death and rebirth, past and present, and the collision of modern culture with antiquity; Form and Void is mysterious look into the odyssey of creation, destruction, and an examination of society at large. -show details

"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.

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
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

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.

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.
