I'm Satterugly street artist based in Guadadalajara Jalisco Mexico and these are some pictures of my latest murals MEXICO AND CALIFORNIA.

In Mexico I paint in the streets of some cities like Guadalajara, Puebla, Cholula, and Durango, in California a couple stops in Los Angeles, one in the study of art prints of Richard Duardo's MODERN MULTIPLES, and another mural in the street at Olympic Blvd in LA.

Inside Silent Music, an exhibition straight from the storage boxes of "accidental rock ephemera collector" Lee Reymore

Silent Music opens tomorrow, July 14th, and runs until August 14th. Opening reception at 8pm, live music by The Fresh & Onlys - at Vacation - 651 Larkin Street in the Tenderloin - ON FACEBOOK

Lee Reymore was once called San Francisco's doppelganger of Jarvis Cocker, and he's got a tantamount of wit, edge and thick-rimmed glasses to match. Omnipresent in a lineage of R&R since the late 70‘s, Lee has traversed through multiple city scenes, from witnessing only one of two Throbbing Gristle North American shows before their break up in 1982, drug interactions in the green room with Bobby Gilespie on the 1991 Screamadelica tour, to living in Edinburgh and modeling colonial outfits with Shirley Manson way before Garbage, and catching plenty of live debuts from buzzed San Francisco garage rock in the late 2000's.

Words: Gabe Connor
Photos: Brian Pritchard

Silent Music, curated by Reymore and installed by partner Randy Walker, is a manifestation of the musical ephemera Reymore has accumulated through his time spent backstage, in the pit, and in the record store. Some are scored secondhand through his connections as a rare book dealer, or just by having an innate eye for scouting his taste.

"I was a thirteen year old stamp collector nerd as a kid. I had this sort of collector mentality early on. I started collecting Samuel Beckett first editions when I began working in the book industry. But I didn't set out to collect art or music ephemera. I just ended up accumulating all of this stuff and not getting rid of anything."

Reymore remembers his first acquired gem of ephemera, caught at 1979 Clash show in his hometown of San Diego on the bands first American tour. It was ripped directly off the back of Joe Strummer himself, in the heat of an intense pit moment. Twenty years later Lee saw Strummer during an in-store at Amoeba, and gave him a handmade sign to pose with that reads "I want my patch back!" Both the original patch as well as the photograph of Strummer with the sign are placed side by side in the show.

The show, on view at Tenderloin vintage boutique and gallery Vacation, is focused on multiple trajectories in Rock N' Roll throughout the years: an eclectic mix of Late 70‘s UK industrial, 60‘s San Francisco psychedelic, mid 80‘s SoCal punk, New York new wave, and present day San Francisco garage rock.There is a variety of mediums in the show: LPs, cassette tapes, handbills, posters, paintings and prints. And through running his own rare and arcane book business Modlit Books he has included in the exhibit selected music biographies and poetry anthologies from the likes of Patti Smith, Nick Cave, and Jim Morrison.

Each item of ephemera in the show comes with a unique backstory behind how he got it. "I had all these great original punk rock fliers from San Diego and Los Angeles from my period living there, and using, like many people do, their parents garage as storage space. My mother threw it all away. I was really pissed. So I have sought out original [1980‘s] San Francisco punk fliers and posters from the people that distribute them back then, for that fact that all my original ones are gone."

Some of the work is made by the musicians themselves, such as paintings or writings that necessarily the focus of their career. Did you know Ian Curtis may or may not have cut the sandpaper used to write the liner notes for a Durutti Column album? Or that Frank Sinatra could sketch a drawing inside of a book he signed?

Silent Music is dedicated to the late renowned San Francisco ephemera collector, writer and curator Steven Leiber. Reymore was invited to visit Leiber's garage, a Mecca of ephemera from artists familiar and obscure. Leiber would keep files on every artist from whom he collected, their paintings, prints, even gallery invitations. "He was interested in the full depth of the artist," says Reymore. In collecting related work beyond just the physical LPs or cassettes, Reymore shares this interest in depth and variety as well.

Their visits exploring this basement-sized treasure chest of art continued until Leiber passed away earlier this year. "We would just talk for hours and hours and I would learn so much about this artist or that artist, some I had never heard of. He had worlds of knowledge, and a genuine passion for what he did."

Leiber's collection generally was not music minded, and most of the music related pieces he did carry were purchased by Reymore, such as the original punk fliers. But for Reymore, Silent Music emulates the experience he had of viewing and learning about Leiber's collection of ephemera, yet curated with his own aesthetic and tailored to his own taste.

"None of us have the same taste, but having said that I don't think I could ever move in with someone and not be controlling the artwork on the walls. That would have to be me."

Silent Music opens tomorrow, July 14th, and runs until August 14th. Opening reception at 8pm, live music by The Fresh & Onlys - at Vacation - 651 Larkin Street in the Tenderloin - ON FACEBOOK

Vacation, opened this past June, is a vintage boutique curated by Kristin Klein, who previously manned a former Vacation storefront in Atlanta. Klein, a tour manager in the indie and garage circuit for several years, chose to intersect her passions for art and music in Vacation. The space will host an ongoing series of gallery shows and carry releases by local bands in addition to fashion.

Confessions of an Old Dirty Skateboarder
Mike Giant, solo show
July 20 - August 12, 2012
Opening reception: Friday, June 20th, 7–10 pm
@FFDG, 2277 Mission St., SF, CA

preview inquires, email: info(at)ffdg.net

San Francisco, CA -- FFDG is pleased to present San Francisco based artist Mike Giant in his first solo show with the gallery entitled "Confessions of an Old Dirty Skateboarder" featuring a wide assemblage of recent drawings and also a rare opportunity to view Giant's personal collection of skateboards he illustrated the graphics for, including boards from his early career. There will be an opening reception for the show on Friday, July 20th (7-10pm). The artist will be present. Beer and wine will be available.

"I'm a product of my generation. I grew up through the 80s and was drawn to the punk rock and hip-hop cultures simultaneously", Giant said in a recent interview. "I threw myself in headfirst. A lot of those things were about personal expression, and also an anti-establishment attitude like, "We don't need you, we have our own thing." That's the backbone of who I am to this day".

San Francisco based Mike Giant has achieved fame as a graffiti artist, illustrator and tattooist. Black ink is Giant's specialty and whether his medium is concrete, paper or skin, his signature style - inspired by Mexican folk art and Japanese illustration - is unmistakable. Mike Giant has worked in media covering, graffiti, design, fine art, photography and tattooing, making him one of the most celebrated and versatile artists of his generation. He has shown in galleries around the world.

Preview of Jeremy Fish's Show Opening Sat
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 10 July 2012 12:19

Last night we swung through Ffity24SF in the Lower Haight for a preview of Jeremy Fish's show "Where Hearts Get Left" which opens this Saturday, July 14th (5-9pm) here in San Francisco, Ca.

The show is Fish's ode to all that that makes San Francisco... San Francisco. He illustrates his favorite lores and legends like how the Native Americans believed that the Earth and subsquently San Francisco was created by a silver-fox and coyote as they danced in the Bay Area's constant dense fog... or how a pair of giant grumpy battling turtles under the Earth's crust cause our earthquakes.

Approx 50 14" x 17" drawings take you on a tour of the special San Francisco-centric things that make the city so special to Fish. From the Mission's best burrito spots to SF's first notable quirky self proclaimed Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, Fish illustrates not the obvious tourist highlights, but those little things that take a decade of discovery to find and appreciate.

My favorites include the collage of the best under the radar, not your fancy burger jams including my all time favorite, Hamburger Haven on Clement. Let's not forget the group of Native American activists who occupied Alcatraz for 19 months in the late 60s... or that like the city itself is always in a constant state of change (sometimes for the worse), but that, like the Vapor Room R.I.P. (for now), even good things come to an end and out of the ashes, the phoenix will rise.

Jeremy Fish in his own heart.

Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I sculpted from south east Asia wood.

This handmade limited to 100 copies book featuring the drawings in the show will soon be on sale complete with a cover made out of wood.

Check the full preview complete with some video interviews with Fish.

In September of last year I had the honor to go with Yong-Ki Chang, Jef Hartsel and Bob Lake down to LA to document their skating and participate in the installation of the Solitary Arts portion of the Product of Design show curated by GlueKit.

These photos were taken over a five day period in which we skated the streets of Venice, rolled on the round wall of the legendary Gonzales pool, sessioned with Jay Adams at Arto Saari's backyard pool, hung art, met extraordinarily talented people, and slept where the munchkins rested their heads. In my short life it was one of the most truly epic adventures I participated in. Thank you Yong-Ki, Jef and Bob.

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

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

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.

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.

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

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.
