Legalize Marijuana in CA - Animation

Thursday, 21 October 2010 14:06
Written by Trippe

On whichever side you sit with Prop 19 (if passed would legalize the sale of marijuana in California) you gotta love the animation I Shot Him made in support of the proposition. ~thenewleaf.org

Produced and funded by I Shot Him Because I Loved Him, Damn Him, a cause-driven design studio. We did this because we care about our fellow Californians and the future of our great state. We hope TheNewLeaf.org helps voters to make informed decisions on this important proposition.

251 Post St, San Francisco, CA 94108

This month Brett Amory reveals the latest in his "Waiting" series. The solo show, titled "Oakland Anticipations", features various locations in Oakland, where Amory has a studio. Personally, having followed Amory's work for the past two years, this is one of my favorite sets of paintings (my other favorite being the work at FFDG last year) - the texture of the paint is grittier, and the compositions feel more ominous. ~photos

No Naked Faces @Giant Robot

Written by Michael Hsiung

Ed Note: Sorry to Michael and the Universe for getting these up so late, but throwing a 10 year show is one thing, wrapping it up is yet another. In any case, I expect you're going to enjoy... so... Enjoy these words and pics from Michael Hsiung when he came up to San Francisco from Los Angeles for his show at Giant Robot.

We rented a car and drove very fast up to San Francisco where we stayed with artists duo Mildred and Pacolli in the Mission. We were headed up to check out No Naked Faces featuring artist Moto Nakaba, Sean Boyles, and Michael C. Hsiung (me) at the Giant Robot store on Haight. Also, it gave me a good reason to make a weekend trip and also catch the Fecalface 10th Anniversary show. What a weekend! ~check it out

Brian Barneclo's System Mural Project

Monday, 18 October 2010 13:32
Written by Trippe

San Francisco artist Brian Barneclo has been working on creating the largest mural here in SF at 7th and Townsend streets "Systems Mural Project" . He's been in the fundraising part of the project for over a year now as he trys to raise the money for the permits, paint, equipment, etc. It's a grassroots campaign, and with the help from businesses and organizations such as the Intersection for the Arts, it's looking like it will be come a reality. Brian has rasied over $30,000 to date but needs a total of $70,000 to begin work. He's created this KickStarter page where you can dontate... and remember that IT'S TAX DUCTABLE since it's being fiscally sponsored by the Intersection for the Arts. Get in there and drop a $20 on a great project. ~on Facebook

Brian Barneclo's work is now on display @The W Hotel through December... Also, a funny thing about the mural is that Brian has the green light to begin today, Otc 18th, but they need $8,000 for insurance. Donate and help make it happen, captain.

Some mural facts:
* This will be the largest mural in San Francisco at 600 feet long and 40 feet tall
* SF Mayor Gavin Newsom has given the project a Proclamation declaring September 16th Systems Mural Day in SF
* The "canvas" for the huge painting greets Caltrains passengers as the enter and exit The City near 7th and Townsend
* There is a 30' mini version of the design on display at a new gallery in the Metreon called Brief Space on display through December

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.

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
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:42

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

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.
