Tuesday, 26 April 2011 09:09

Going down tonight... I'd get there early and be sure to bring lots of $$ to donate to SAVE KUSF'S cause of bringing back the station to 90.3.

Benefits all around this evening at The Eagle because we all wanna Save KUSF and we just learned that the Eagle is closing. WHAT?! <-- so this may be one of the last times to enjoy one of the best venues for music in San Francisco with live music from Thee Oh Sees, Ty Segall, Carletta Sue Kay & The Sandwitches.

Tuesday, April 26 at 8:00pm - 1:30am <-- and you're gonna wanna get there early because something tells us this is going to be a full house.

Urrrffff Day
Friday, 22 April 2011 09:40

Hey, why not take your favorite plant to some openings tonight for Earth Day? {calendar} Poor lil' guy doesn't have legs to walk around with. Show some love for the slow moving green machines who convert our carbon dioxide back into oxygen giving us all that breathing important stuff. The least we can do is show a little love... Actually, that would be pretty funny to see people spending the evening with their favorite plant. Dinner, a walk, a film, riding bikes and skating down the street all holding lil' plants. Haha. I'd buy that for a dollar.

SPB Convention in SF This Weekend
Thursday, 21 April 2011 13:08

Bunnies... Hundreds of bunnies, The Silly Pink Bunnies, are about to descend onto San Francisco from across the globe as the SPBs wrap up their final (the last?!) yearly convention this weekend.

Photo: pbo31

The meanest gang in America? Or are there the loudest and drunkest? You decide this weekend. --> Silly Pink Bunnies: a large gang with connections to the artist Jeremy Fish. He was the founder of this rather large skate gang that has chapters in many cities like Los Angeles, Long Beach, and San Francisco. Unless you are a member, the traditions and customs of this gang are rather secretive.

The private festivities for Dons only begin this evening and continue throughout the weekend, but there are 2 nights open to ALL where you can celebrate with the infamous gang. Saturday night at Thee Parkside, Hightower lets loose w/ Motorhome and Buzzard. DJ Don Ceasar will be spinning too, and trust us, this DJ has the best taste in music. If you have just one of his mixes, you know what I mean. --> Biz Markie on Sunday night @Mezzanine.

In order to effectively respond to this call, you must submit your reply no later than June 1, 2011. ~Complete Details

Constance Lee Hockaday Lecture Sat
Thursday, 21 April 2011 09:04

One of my friends from the Miss Rockaway rafts is doing one of her crazy interactive floating lectures in SF over the next couple weeks beginning on Saturday.

Constance Lee Hockaday, nautical artist and lecturer has scrapped together and dissected old wooden sail boats into a tsunami shaped sculpture at the Carville Annex in the Outer Sunset. From within this shipwreck of an installation she will give a scattered and performative lecture of associations and truth stretchings--questioning some people’s tendency to cross great bodies of water in unlikely vessels, the tendency toward that awful word hope, pilgrimage, abandon, carnival; with the help of Moby Dick, Elizabeth Taylor, Wallace Stevens, Ms. Nancy Bogg’s floating brothel, Magpies and their fascination with the shiny, water as a metaphor for other radical human endeavors, how ridiculous is it to project ourselves into the future--a tremendous thing.

The Carvile Annex, A year and a half of gatherings and publications generously supported by Southern Exposure's Alternative Exposure Grant (Fecal Face was awarded one in 2007).

April 23rd, May 6th, and May 13th. Come at 8pm. There will be whisky. -->more details

Tommy Guerrero on KQED's Forum
Tuesday, 19 April 2011 09:59

Woke up yesterday morning totally fried from moving apartments all weekend (see below) and was pleased to hear our friend Tommy Guerrero being interviewed on KQED's Forum (listen online or download the MP3)... Covering his music, skateboarding, art, etc, it's an interesting 1 hour long interview and you're gonna wanna download it for later listening enjoyments... or listen to it right now.

The San Francisco Chronicle describes musician Tommy Guerrero's work as "a soul, jazz, psychedelic fusion that feels like a soundtrack for walking the streets of San Francisco." That's appropriate, since Guerrero first made a name for himself navigating the city's avenues and alleys as a pioneering pro skateboarder. We'll talk to Guerrero about his journey from high school dropout and teen skate god to entrepreneur and indie music icon. He joins us as part of our "First Person" series featuring the leaders, innovators and other individuals who make the Bay Area Unique.

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

"Arrangement" by Michelle Fleck
Friday, 18 April 2014 10:23

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

Michelle Fleck is a painter living in San Francisco. Her work focuses on the relationship between man and the landscape, and the marks we leave on it. Influenced by everyday life in the city, her paintings serve as snapshots of an ongoing intersection of the natural and man-made world. 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.

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

Think how high those throw ups can be now.

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

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
