Good Stuff
Belated New Years, Mr. Lluch
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 03 January 2013 16:13

We got all kinds of emails from artists wishing us and their mailing list a happy new year. Many nice illustrations and works included, but this one from Mr. Kern stood out entitled "ALAIN LLUCH"... Who and why Alain Lluch? All we could find online is that Mr. Kern paints him often.

Wonderful, Mr. Lluch. Thanks for the kind wishes, and the best new year to you too.

Normally he sells his prints, zines, etc on his Etsy store, but at the moment it looks pretty empty. Thanks for the goodness, kind sir and fill up your store so people can purchase. Love the print below.

Huey Crowley - Recent Paintings
Written by Van Edwards   
Friday, 21 December 2012 10:30

NYC based painter Huey Crowley, who was in our group show 11.11.11 last year, emailed over some new paintings based on reinterpreted children's fairy tales his grandmother read to him as a child.

Huey writes I chose to reinterpret these stories through my own narrative, and I chose excerpts from my own life to explore them. For example, in the painting "Toad I miss U" I am painting what I think it would be like if someone never listened to these stories or had a role model in their life... what their life would be like if they never had an adult around to read to them, or to care for them. The painting depicts an empty subway, with a homeless person's makeshift home inside. Surrounding the home are messages calling out to find Frog and Toad. The absence of role models can leave one’s life empty.

San Francisco artist Jesse Balmer emailed over this drawing recently and, by gosh, we'd like to share it with you.

Speaking of Jesse Balmer, we loaned supervisor Jane Kim artwork for her office, which included some work from Jesse Balmer, and we almost forgot about it. Damn, that was two years ago. Wonder if the works are still hanging. Might be time to investigate.

Max Rippon Mini Interview
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 20 December 2012 15:13

As we approach the Holidays (are we there now?), we thought we'd check in with some of the artists currently showing in our Winter Group Show at FFDG on display through Jan 12th.

We've been posting up Barcelona based Max Rippon's (RIPO) work for years now (since 2009?). He does a lot of it outdoors and some of it indoors like he did with his recent show at White Walls (pics).

For some press release terminology: Heavily influenced by sign painting, Ripo creates text-based work with an urban aesthetic, exploring single words and short turns of phrase with a tongue-in-cheek sensibility. Elaborately-drawn fonts, formed with watercolor, ink, graphite, sign painters enamel and oil pastels on delicate handcut paper, allow us to appreciate the aesthetics of the words regardless of their associations.... Here is a short interview with the prolific fella covering all the bases.

Location? Age? Education? Website?

Barcelona, Spain. Coming around the bend of thirty years. Educated. www.ripovisuals.com

"Untitled" currently showing @FFDG

How would you describe your work to someone?

Alphabetic. Calligraphic. Sarcastic. Serious. Destructive. Constructive.

Influences?

My friends, my brother, the Internet, and letters, signs, and sights I come across in the streets. Coming across unintentionally hysterical signage is the best.

Favorite place traveled?

Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Working routine? Music? Time of day?

It can range from midday to midnight. An "average" day (I actually don't have these too often) I wake up mid-morning and do a bit of work in the studio or on the computer before running errands. If I get out of the house too late I won't be able to do anything since most places close in Spain during lunchtime. It's one of the most inconvenient things about living here. Then later in the afternoon I'll get down to business in the studio until someone distracts me and drags me out at night.

ROA Update

Our buddy in Copenhagen Henrik Haven emailed over a massive update from Belgium street artist ROA. All kinds of goodies from around the world.

South Africa- Jobannesburg - Thanks to I ART JHB, Ricky, Monica and the team!

Sleeping Fox - Painted in July in rainy Bristol.

Driving from the east to the west of America (thanks Marcy and Alex) to stop at Tucson. By invitation of Eric Firestone of the Boneyard Project I got to paint this US Navy discarded plane that been used during the Korean war. Painting such a 'loaded' surface, gives some 'weight' during painting it.

Dave Kinsey Thurs in NYC
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 11 December 2012 11:50

Dave Kinsey
Everything at Once
December 13, 2012 to January 13, 2013
@Joshua Liner, NYC
We have a sneak peek of Dave Kinsey's solo show that's opening this Thursday, Dec 13th in NYC at Joshua Liner. Dave's last solo show was here in San Francisco @FFDG last May.

As the show title suggests, Kinsey attempts to convey a world gone mad with media, perpetual conflict, and a sense of the mounting struggle between the urban and natural worlds. Kinsey creates this new body of work through a brash synthesis of materials, textures, and aesthetics, conjuring multilayered abstractions with traces of figuration which create dynamic transformations of images within images.

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

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

 

Nikki McClure at Needles & Pens, Friday 4/11
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:42

SAN FRANCISCO --- Nikki McClure, known for her painstakingly intricate and beautiful paper cuts, returns to Needles & Pens with an opening reception this Friday, April 11th - She'll be showing original papercuts for the book, "May the Stars Drip Down" - show details

This approach was born and bred out of the Olympia, Washington independent music scene. There, local artists emphasized everything handmade and self-published. The idea was to do a lot with a little. The result was a rich community sharing artistry and ideas. McClure found herself deeply embedded in this community which shaped an ethic of hands-on and accessible artmaking. - show details

Going Over Murals?

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.

Brian Barneclo's 225' Food Chain Mural

San Francisco based Brian Barneclo was commissioned in 2006 to paint a HUGE mural on the side of Foods Co on Shotwell at 14th Streets. After some time on its own, it got pretty taxed by misc graffiti and pigeon shit.


A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the citys shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesnt end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.


John Felix Arnold @BRIC House, Brooklyn

In the year or so that I've known Felix, almost every one of his shows has had a live musical element and it seems perfect that he would be included in a show called Art Into Music. He commandeered the corner of the gallery to create an installation that houses not only his drawing, but also an entire drum kit, amps and a dude playing a guitar. The warm wood paneling stands out in contrast to the matte grey boom-box tower and the muted wall of album covers and looks like a beacon calling to the crowd saying "this is what you shoud be looking at." However, it's not in a "look at me" attention-starved desperation, more like a welcoming invitation into his world.
