Dave Choe Mexico City August 17th
Tuesday, 13 August 2013 09:04

David Choe is preparing to open the solo show SNOWMAN MONKEY BBQ in Mexico City on Saturday, the 17th at Museo Universitario del Chopo.

If you don't know who Choe is, you should, but if not, he was the lucky/ smart bastard who in exchange for $$$ opted for Facebook stocks when doing a mural in their offices in like 2005 (details).

Snowman Monkey BBQ is my first art exhibition in almost 4 years. why haven't i shown in so long? I been percolatin' i was busy destroying myself like any decent artist. 4 years of falling deep into addiction, heartbreak, rejoicing, discovery, recovery, hallucinogenics, worship and ignorant idiotic prophecies manifest and explode into a strange reality that I myself can't comprehend, it will encompass murals, sculptures, watercolors, oil, mixed media and if you're lucky and I'm fucked off this mezcal , maybe some performance art too. ~show preview & details

Speedy Recovery for artist Daryll Peirce
Monday, 12 August 2013 11:04

While browsing the Instagram the other day, we were sad to see that SF artist, Daryll Peirce, melted his hand while grabbing a burning plastic pillow out of the dryer. Major ouch!... We hope a speedy recovery to Daryll and happy travels as he and his family are off to live in Greece for 6 months. Sounds like an epic place to recover from the hand melting.

Daryll Peirce in happier times installing a show at Oakland's LeQuiVive Gallery last year.

Friends who witnessed Tasering of Beach teen offer disturbing details
Thursday, 08 August 2013 12:22

MIAMI --- 17 year old graffiti artist/ skateboarder "Reefa" (Israel Hernandez-Llach), whom we're not familiar with but thought the story was interesting, was killed by a police's tazer after being spotted spray-painting a shuttered McDonald's early Tuesday morning and after a short chase. According to friend and "lookout", who was there during the ordeal, cops laughed and "high-5'd" each other after the tazzing which knocked Israel to the ground and later killed him.

We're not sure if the act of tazzing was neccessary, but it does sound like something went wrong as tasers are considered a nonlethal weapon. ~continue reading

 
Amazon Fine Art
Wednesday, 07 August 2013 11:02

Amazon yesterday has jumped in the art selling business with its Amazon Fine Art listing art from 150 selected US galleries, and FFDG is one.

FFDG will be increasing its inventory through Amazon's Fine Art department over the next few weeks, but between you and me, I think you can get a better deal by contacting the galleries directly, obviously.

Local record and book shops have been disappearing as the market for music and literature moves online. In the past few years, there's been a growth in sites that sell fine art on the Internet. On Tuesday, Amazon joined that market. But in this case, many brick and mortar galleries aren't seeing the Internet as a threat. ~continue reading

The Writing on Mexican Walls Isn't Graffiti—It's 'Vernacular Branding'
Monday, 05 August 2013 08:14

In central Mexico, walls are invitations to party. Since 1960, bardas de baile (loosely translated as "music walls") have illuminated exurban and rural areas with colorful, hand-painted advertisements for music, dances, and carnivals. Although these work of homemade graphic design share some of the characteristics of graffiti, they are not tags - and they are tolerated by the authorities. The new book Mexican Wall Painting: Bardas De Baile (Ghost & Co., New York) by Patricia Cue, a designer and design teacher at San Diego State University, examines these expressive painted letterings and the subcultures that have developed around them. - continue reading

 
Art Gallery Opening Etiquette - What Not to Do
Friday, 02 August 2013 08:15

Want to make as bad an impression as possible at an art gallery opening you've been invited to? Here's all you have to do to irritate and offend not only the artist and the gallery owner, but also anyone else in attendance who's seriously interested in seeing, learning about or buying the art. Sad to say, these are actual behaviors that I have either seen myself or have been told about by others (mainly artists, gallery owners and gallery personnel) -continue reading

I'M SICK OF PRETENDING: I DON'T "GET" ART
Tuesday, 30 July 2013 09:24

"You know what? I'm sick of pretending. I went to art school, wrote a dissertation called "The Elevation of Art Through Commerce: An Analysis of Charles Saatchi's Approach to the Machinery of Art Production Using Pierre Bourdieu's Theories of Distinction", have attended art openings at least once a month for the last five years, even fucking purchased pieces of it, but the other night, after attending the opening of the new Tracey Emin retrospective at the Hayward Gallery, I'm finally ready to come out and say it: I just don't think I get art." --continue reading

Bummer Town in Huntington Beach
Monday, 29 July 2013 10:07

Guess people got pretty stupid at the end of the Huntington Beach Beach Van's Skate & Surf thingy yesterday. Bummer, but at least the art looked good. See some photos from the guys painting the bowl.

Huntington Beach is cleaning up Monday morning after a fight broke out following the U.S. Open of Surfing, leading to a two-hour confrontation between police and unruly beachgoers. ~continue reading

Future Colors of America
Friday, 26 July 2013 13:07

Los Angeles based artists Matt Furie and Aiyana Udesen swung through FFDG the other day for a howdy "nice to see ya".

Why were they back visiting their old home of San Francisco, we asked? "Rats", the couple, who have had rats for pets for the last few years, answer. "We drove up to grab a couple from the animal shelter and swung through to check out Sylvia's show"... Well, howdy, guys.

The duo will open their 3rd three person show "Future Colors of America" with Albert Reyes (LA) on Friday the 13th of September at FFDG... If it's anything like last year's show, it's going to be another great one.

With their best prom pose, Los Angeles based artists Matt Furie and Aiyana Udesen are photographed at FFDG in front of Sylvia Ji's piece "Mission Otomi".

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

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

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.

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

OB Shirt by Tucker Nichols

Tucker Nichols emailed over this new OB shirt he did for our friends at Park Life which can purchased here for $28.

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.

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
