Going Over Murals?
    Wednesday, 02 April 2014 /// Written by Van Edwards

We've noticed this mural on 19th St here in the Mission has been getting bombed over the last week.

Is going over a mural acceptable?

Isn't there an unwritten rule of not going over murals?

Mik Shida Mural in Queensland, Australia
    Wednesday, 12 March 2014 /// Written by Trippe

Know how they tell you that there's no ozone over Australia, and you think to yourself, "damn, that sucks. Humans are a horrible plague on the Earth" and what a bummer that our children are going to inherit the Earth with all our problems and blah blah blah???

Well, we went to Australia once some years back, and WOWZAS, the sun is super intense. You can feel it burning into your flesh while sitting for just a couple minutes. It's not the "wow, it's hot" kind of burning. No, it's like a magnifying glass burning ants kind of intensity. It's as though the Sun's rays are being focused onto your flesh and your being burned from the inside out kind of intense... It's on the verge of terrifying actually... But it is cute how the little school children wear these hats to not be burned to death.

Mik Shida completed this mural recently in Toowoomba regional Queensland, Australia for http://www.firstcoat.com.au/ -- Photos by Tim Caraco

Steve Powers US Embassy Mural
    Tuesday, 05 November 2013 /// Written by Trippe

COPENHAGEN --- US graffiti/ street artist/ letter/ design artist, Steve Powers just completed a mural project for the US Embassy in Copenhagen on a 55-meter long temporary wooden construction wall. Henrik brings us PHOTOS of Powers and his helpers working on the mural from the other day. PHOTOS

We wanted to do something different. The long, grey temporary construction wall in front of the Embassy building site provided us with a perfect opportunity, and V1 Gallery helped us identify just the right artist. With his mural, Steve pays tribute to a Danish icon, Hans Christian Andersen, whose stories many Americans grew up with, myself included" says Emily Ronek, Cultural Attaché, at the U.S. Embassy. "I am really excited about this, and I hope the thousands of Copenhageners who pass by the Embassy every day will enjoy this as a token of the great friendship between Denmark and the U.S. ~read on

Hyuro "In/Between" at ArtRebels
    Tuesday, 04 June 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Hyuro from Valencia, Spain was recently in Copenhagen for the solo show "In/Between" at ArtRebels.

While she was there she completed a massive 271 metre long mural project in Orestad, Copenhagen which tells the story of a deer moving from light into obscurity and emerges again, changed, on the other side. In her words: "In the battle of opposites, nobody wins and nobody loses. It's just a cycle, just another one. A deer runs and disappears in the trees, the forest devouring it in its branches. You can't win the race against time. The night will come first and bring its darkness, but Copenhagen can sleep peacefully. The sun will rise again in the morning and the deer will continue along his way. Nature takes its course. Nature meets city meets nature; chaos meets order meets chaos; night meets day meets night."

Her solo show at ArtRebels runs through June 15th -- Photos by Henrik Haven

ARYZ's TL Mural and The Apple
    Tuesday, 04 June 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Rachel Ralph spotted Barcelona-based ARYZ working on his mural in the TL a couple weeks back, and we forgot to share the pics. His show at Fifty24SF opened back in April.

Looks amazing, but what's the deal with the mural's metamorphosis? In the beginning phases she's holding a small figure in her hands, and with the mural's completion, she's holding an apple?... The completed mural is a women holding some fruit? Was the subject matter of her holding a man too edgy and had to be tamed? Was the original intent to be an apple all along? Notice her right hand changes angles to adjust for the apple? So many questions and so little interest.

That massive thing is 5 stories tall and located at the corner of Polk Street and Eddy Street. Look up next time in the Tenderloin, but watch out for the human shit at foot level.

An apple is held.

Or is it a figure she's holding?

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

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.

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

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

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.


Flavio Samelo's Downtown Sao Paulo Murals
