The Bunny Statue Funeral, Friday, the 13th
Tuesday, 10 September 2013 13:26

SAN FRANCISCO --- As you may or may not have known, Jeremy Fish's bunny was stolen last week from it's perch on the corner of Haight @Laguna, but don't fret as it was recovered from the thieves in less than 24 hours by the SPBs.

The corner where the bunny rested along with numorous mural works is about to be demolished by Wood Properties, the developers of the Haight and Laguna property as they prepare for construction on the block. But in collaboration with the Haight Street Merchant and Neighbor Association, there are plans (and money has been raised) to contruct a 10 foot high bronze bunny!

Friday the 13th at 6pm, there at the corner of Haight and Laguna, there will be a funeral or sorts for the old bunny along with some people giving speaches about the 55 Laguna developments, Waller park, and the new Haight Street art center, all being built on this location. After that Jeremy Fish will read an eulogy, and thank everybody for helping to make a bronze statue in the Haight. ~complete details

He was a Bunny who loved the outdoors, and bowling, and as a surfer explored the beaches of southern California from Lahoya to Leo Carrillo. And up to Pismo. He died -- he died as so many young Bunnies of his generation, before his time.

Guerrero Gallery Moving Locations
Monday, 09 September 2013 09:15

We were sad to learn that the wonderful Guerrero Gallery will be closing their doors after their final show closes on October 1st.

They moved in and remodeled their beautiful 19th St space 3 years ago, and on Saturday, Sept 14th, they will open their last show in the space with works by Ben Venom and Lucien Shapiro... Guerrero writes in a recent emailer, "We are sad to be leaving, but excited for future endeavors. Although we will be closing the doors temporarily, we will continue to move forward with the gallery and will keep everyone informed about our plans to re-open at another location." ~continue reading

Guerrero Gallery is moving out of their current space and looking for a new location.

Mollusk Big Sur Jamboree on September 27 to 28th: Two days of music, camping and ensuing fun, set amongst the redwoods co-presented by (((folkYEAH!)))
Monday, 02 September 2013 10:41

Camp fire roaring in Big Sur with live music from Vetiver, Beachwood Sparks, McCombs Skiffle Players (a once in a lifetime Cass McCombs super group), Allah-Las, Sonny and the Sunsets, The Autumn Defense, Little Wings, Neal Casal, Chris Cohen, F.D and the Wizards of the West All Stars, Range of Light Wilderness, The Mattson 2, Sonny and the Sunsets, and many more.

Sponsored by Mollusk surf shop and the Big Sur Jamboree features two days of music, camping and ensuing fun, set amongst the redwoods co-presented by (((folkYEAH!))). Sept 27-28

Though there will be food and drink on site, Jamboree attendees are encouraged to bring their own. Been saving a vintage bottle of chardonnay from the famed Marcassin Estate in Sonoma… there couldn't be a better time to uncork it than when Beachwood Sparks hits the stage deep in the woods. Lastly, Farmer Dave has been deemed the Jamboree's "Cultural Vibesman" and will be on hand to ensure all attendees will have a wonderful time. Think of the Jamboree less as a music festival and more as summer camp for adults!

SAN FRANCISCO --- Mark your calendars, people, as the show ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND featuring works by Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri is one not to be missed which opens Wednesday, Sept 12th at SFAI.

RIP Matt Doust
Thursday, 29 August 2013 13:34

We're sorry to hear that 29 year old Australian/ American artist Matt Doust has died from after an epileptic seizure last night. His next show at LA's Thinkspace Gallery opens next week on September 7th. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.

Perth artist Matt Doust, an Archibald Prize-finalist, has reportedly died at the age of 29. Doust, best known for his large-close-up portrait of actress-model Gemma Ward, died after an epileptic seizure, according to the Los Angeles art gallery where he was due to open a new exhibition next month. Doust had become a favourite of celebrity collectors, with Hollywood stars Jim Carrey and Mickey Rourke among those who have purchased his large, hyper-realistic youthful close-ups and semi-nude paintings. -continue reading

Man (or Woman) Down
Friday, 23 August 2013 10:51

It's with a heavy heart to announce that we had a floater this morning at FFDG. It looks like "Shark 1" or "Shark 2" (they look the same) has passed away.

We're not sure what did him (or her) in. All we know is that our two shark looking little fish had been hanging in the corner by the heater for the last couple weeks. But it's been warm in the gallery, so heat shouldn't have been a factor. The tank has been clean with plenty of tasty fish flake food for the eatin'... In the end, you know, it doesn't matter. He (or she) has moved on to the art gallery in the sky where small little fish have multiple cubic feet to swim about with plenty of plants to hide behind and plenty of fish flakes to eat, spit out, and eat again.

Only dead fish go with the current.

Our gallery lil' fish passed today. RIP, lil' buddy.

Stop Jack Spade
Thursday, 22 August 2013 11:21

San Francisco --- NYC chain store Jack Spade allowed to continue construction of their upcoming fancy pants men's boutique in the retail space Adobe Books used to hold until forced out by landlord who doubled their rent.

The SF Board of Appeals failed to get the necessary four votes to overturn Jack Spade's building permits although The Valencia Corridor Merchants Association can file another appeal within the next ten days, and we think SHOULD!

Maybe it's just us, but does our community need a shop to sell us a $145 tshirt or a $700 parka?! Will they "improve" the neighborhood as a few short sighted merchants think they will, or will this just entice other retail and residential landlords to increase rents in the already expensive neighborhood? - For those merchants who supported Jack Spade. I hope your not next to be evicted.

Our favorite quote from Jack Spade's company co-leader Melissa Xides, "We fell in love with the uniqueness of 16th Street... We fell in love with the food scene and gentrification that's happening there." Ya...

"We have a lot of problems on our block, but Jack Spade is not going to fix them," said Katz. "We as a community are in a dangerous position when we look to a multinational corporation to fix our block."

Beached Whale Stinson Beach
Tuesday, 20 August 2013 10:13

How often do you get the chance to view the second largest creature on Earth? That's what we were thinking after learning that an endangered fin whale had beached itself on Stinson Beach yesterday after sustaining some sort of trauma.

The 1 year old whale, which is about half the size of a full grown adult whale, died there on the beach after thrashing about in the morning and taking its last breaths. Members from the Marine Mammal Center performed a necropsy with plans of burying the whale there on the beach. ~details

The whale was breathing, moving a side fin, and had one of its eyes open, she said. The sisters ran back to tell their parents. By the time the family went back out to the beach, firefighters and other emergency crews were there.

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.

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb.

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

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
