At the beginning of December 2013 Kenor, Zosen and Mina Hamada from Barcelona went to Miami for paint some murals during Art Basel. We painted at Grove Studios in Coconut Grove ("Coconut Sunrise"). (PHOTOS)

Next days we created 2 big murals close to Wynwood walls: one doing a circles series ("Acid Galaxy") and other one more free-style ("El carnaval de la juventud") . Both murals are in collaboration (left side by Mina Hamada, center by Kenor and right side by Zosen).

Ernest Zacharevic in Malaysia

Thursday, 16 January 2014 13:06

I am now in Penang, Malaysia where I have have enjoyed a very interesting and busy week in the beautiful surroundings here.

I've had the pleasure to follow Ernest Zacharevic since friday while he created some of the new paintings, murals and installations for his first solo show ever, which will open on Friday January 17th here in Penang, Malaysia.

I have also included shots of his visit to the local wood carver/sign maker (since a sign above the door of a new opened store is good luck) where he picked up a sign with one of his "childish horses" which is going to be on display at the show (it's Chinese New year here and it will be the year of the horse - again for good luck), a visit to a legendary stamp maker who carved Ernest's signature in marble in the traditional Chinese way which will be added on the hand finished prints that goes along with the show and finally shots from a local Indian store that usually produce ornament for parades etc. but in this case made 2 Lego sculptures in large scale for the show (similar to the ones he made on a mural just recently that caused quite a stir and controversy in the area here).

Yet More Art Theft
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 13 January 2014 14:10

Ouch, these guys are complete thieves having stole Tiffany Bozic's Strigiformes artwork for their clothing line. Bozic emailed this morning with the disturbing news:

From Tiffany Bozic: "Check out this lame-ass company who blatantly ripped off the Strigiformes painting, trying to sell it on ugly sweatshirts. I posted an alert on my Tumblr blog about it.

I'm sick of this happening, and I feel like it would help IMMENSELY to get some more exposure out there on the subject to help put an end to this. I can imagine this is happening to a ton of other emerging artists as well, not just me."

Has this happened to you? We've seen other large companies in the past plunder artists' works... Any lawyers out there know the legality of this? Is this a case of cease and desist?

Even though it's a rad sweater, Tiffany Bozic did NOT license her artwork for this.

She did license her beautiful image to FFDG for this print though.

David Young, Eddie Colla, and Hugh Leeman @111 Minna
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 08 January 2014 10:42

SAN FRANCISCO --- After their successful 3000 square foot installation based show in Los Angeles, artists David Young, Eddie Colla, and Hugh Leeman return to San Francisco. This Bay Area based trio will showcase new artworks from oil paintings to 3 dimensional assemblage sculptures. These new works will take over the entirety of 111 Minna Gallery's 4,700 square feet of open space.

While Young and Colla will add to their richly layered allegorically collaborative works, Leeman will show new oil paintings based on his imagination, created through a wet reductive process. These artworks will be on display for two months at 111 Minna Gallery. This show opens February 7th, 5p.m. till late at 111 Minna Street in downtown San Francisco.

Hugh Leeman

David Young

Eddie Colla


statement on the works:
"I threw away all my things, gave away all my paint and started over with black and white. I stopped painting from photos or life and painted from my head with my feelings through movement. I began using brushes less and less instead keeping my paint very wet and using a rubber squeegee to remove the paint from the canvas. I would dance while I painted, I was always alone, and at the summit even I was absent from the process, my subconscious creating on my behalf."
Hugh Leeman

Information:
What: Art Exhibition At 111 Minna Gallery
When: Opening Reception, Friday, February 7th, 5pm Till Late, Through March 29th
Who: Artists, David Young, Eddie Colla, and Hugh Leeman

Tuesday, 07 January 2014 09:22

Ok, the gap at Love Park in Philly is huge. If you don't skate, know that the gap is a monster and Love Park has been a very notable skate spot for the last 15 years or more... In any case, this clip of recent Skater of the Year Ishod Wair struck a chord with me because I used to film skateboarding years back, and even though skate parts flow smoothly together, gathering the footage takes a lot of time... and just like it did with Ishod here, it can be very much worth it.

My newest work "MS DOS In Attesa" that was painted in Formia, Italy for the In Attesa Art project where bus stops are turned into spaces for art. It's my homage to the MS-DOS operating system from the 80s/90s. The project is appropriately named because "In Attesa" means waiting. Photo by Flavia Fiengo. --Giulio Vesprini

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

Speaking of Ocean Beach, if you know, you know, but if you don't... it's not what the average american thinks of when thinking of a California Beach (missing 14 yr. old yesterday). Can't believe we used to drunk naked swim at 3am in the dead if winter... being surfers probably helped us not dying.

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

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.
