Director of The Water McBeer Gallery, Henry Gunderson, emailed over some images of their current show with Tom Betthauser who currently lives and works in the small desert town of Califorina City, California. He is faculty at Ridgecrest community college where he works to mold the young minds of rural desert youth. This is his first exhibition with the venerated Water McBeer Gallery featuring a new series of hypothetical paintings and drawings that give landscape new substance. Tom received his MFA from Yale University.

18 Years of Antihero
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Tuesday, 13 August 2013 12:00

The Eleanor Harwood gallery opened its doors last Saturday night for Anti-Art, a show of Anti Hero skateboard decks made by Dennis McNett.

The show commemorated the 18th birthday of Anti Hero Skateboards, and I can't quite believe they're only now legal. McNett is one of my personal favorite artists and it was great to see the woodblock, the print, and the deck all displayed together. It really brought the creation of the boards to life, and the energy imbued in the woodblock is unmistakable in the completed deck. I got there just as it opened, and the prints were already selling like hot-cakes, and I'm sure it only accelerated through the night. It was awesome to see it all together, and I hope it got more rowdy as the beers were drunk and the sun went down. Happy birthday, Anti Hero!

Rip Zinger @Book & Job
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Tuesday, 23 July 2013 10:39

Japanese skate photographer Rip Zinger and skate legend and musician Tommy Guerrero stormed the Book and Job Gallery on Saturday night to host an evening of good old-fashioned skate rock (pics).

Marking the one-year anniversary of the Book and Job, people gathered in the gallery to see and buy Rip Zinger's photos, and spilled outside the door to catch a show by Tommy. Rip Zinger was selling his photos for super cheap, starting at $5, and displayed them in a way that made you feel like you couldn't help but buy a few and support the cause (it probably also helped that he seems like one hell of a salesman).

People were enjoying themselves in the casual atmosphere and I'm told that the cops who came because of the noise were even pretty cool about it and didn't kick anyone out. If this is only year one, the Book and Job Gallery has developed a growing community, and I can't wait for next year's anniversary party.

I LV @The Shooting Gallery
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Thursday, 18 July 2013 09:39

A little bit gaudy, a little bit cheeky, and a whole lot of quality describes the work which can now be seen in the Shooting Gallery's newest show I <3 LV. The artists in the show responded to the luxury designs of Louis Vuitton with work that reads as both literal and loosely-based. (PHOTOS)

Bringing the work of Niels "Shoe" Muelman in through video and that video's object output tied the show together, and connected it with the other spaces in the show. Forgoing the traditional logo of the company, several artists, such as Casey Gray, Chad Hasegawa, and Ferris Plock focused on the checkerboard pattern the company frequently uses, and provided a break from the heavy presence of the icon. Even more solace was provided by Meryl Pataky's Cellar Door which can be seen in the project space. Combining foliage and neon lights, this show reads like the garden outside of a glamorous ball, perfect for the concept of the main gallery and its luxury goods. But no matter how lost you may get in the high-priced world of this show, remember, the Tenderloin is just outside the door.

Niels "Shoe" Muelman @White Walls
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Friday, 12 July 2013 13:22

Niels "Shoe" Muelman (Amsterdam) opened his latest shows Unism and Unpire! here in San Francisco at White Walls last Saturday night. The first title cleverly prevents his categorization into an art-historical 'ism' and his Calligraffiti seals the deal. (+Photos)

His process is clearly seen in a video produced by Louis Vuitton and was shown in the space of the Shooting Gallery, as he sweeps paint across a boxing ring to read "Word" as Yasiin Bey recites a poem about Muhammed Ali. Like a Chinese warrior, his broom reads like a sword as he paints the surface with his aptly named Calligraffiti. This was a nice touch to the show, as although you can see most of his paintings unfold on canvas as you imagine a palette knife spreads the thick letters into formation, the video allows a different and dynamic process to be revealed.

His second show, Unpire! follows the same tropes but takes on the world of baseball, or as the advertising postcard says "A Tribute to Baseball (The Essence of Life in the Universe)." In our baseball-crazed city, I'm sure these pieces sold like hotcakes. Painted with traditional umpire's brushes, these works follow his style, but infuse it with the essence of baseball, read clearly through common phrases like "Infield Fly." These pieces provided more diversity to the entire show, and although people weren't flocking there on Saturday night, I'm sure more will come through the door before the show closes on August 10th.

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

ClipODay II: Needles & Pens 11 Years!!

Congrats on our buddies at Needles and Pens on being open and rad for 11 years now. Mission Local did this little short video featuring Breezy giving a little heads up on what Needles and Pens is all about.


BANDES DE PUB / STRIP BOX

In a filmmaker's thinking, we wish more videos were done in this style. Too much editing and music with a lacking in actual content. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.


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

Our buddy Flavio Samelo down there in Brazil does all kinds of great work including this recent mural project in downtown Sao Paulo in front of one of the most important modern buildings of Oscar Niemeyer from the 60's, THE COPAN.
