The Energy That is All Around @SFAI
    Friday, 27 September 2013 /// Written by Trippe

The Energy That is All Around (thru Dec 14th) at the San Fracisco Art Institute's Walter and McBean Galleries is hands-down the best gallery show I've seen in a while. Showing the work of Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri, the show commemorates these Mission School artsits after gaining two decades of recognition not only in the Bay Area, but worldwide. The works alone are obviously phenomenal, but the way in which the gallery intertwined them with each other brought a sense of balance and community that speaks to more than the geographical proximity which links these artists.

The night started with a small and mature crowd but quickly snowballed when students and the public were allowed in. Several rock bands played on the patio as the beer and wine flowed, and it was so clear that we could see the new Bay Bridge sparkling in the distance. It was exciting. Students could not only gather with each other, but look at work of SFAI alumni who have clearly made an impact on both the local and international artworlds. Hopefully, one or two of them will return in twenty years with their impactful work, continuing this energetic evolution.

"ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND" - Great Show Not to be Missed at SFAI Opening Sept 12th
    Friday, 30 August 2013 /// Written by Trippe

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.

ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND features early and formative work by five artists—Chris Johanson, Margaret Kilgallen, Alicia McCarthy, Barry McGee, and Ruby Neri—who began their careers in the early 1990s in San Francisco's Mission District and, by the early aughts, had been identified and celebrated as key members of the so-called Mission School.

REVIEW: BARRY MCGEE @ ICA BOSTON
    Tuesday, 16 April 2013 /// Written by Van Edwards

Barry McGee reigns as one of the most legitimate artists of his genre and his time. While some of his "graffiti" peers have spent 20 years cashing in at every corner possible, he has quietly created an amazing body of work. He's an absurdly talented artist that assembles work and exhibitions that don’t just appeal to the eye; they’re a sensory overload. Entering a show by Barry is an immersive event that leaves you with a feeling of excitement and wonder. ~continue reading

 

Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, & Laurie Reid @CCSF
    Tuesday, 26 February 2013 /// Written by Rachel Ralph

Barry McGee, Chris Johanson, and Laurie Reid returned to their alma mater, City College of San Francisco, to open an unassuming art show and interact with students and the community.

After seeing McGee's Berkeley Art Museum exhibition last fall, this show was not what I was expecting, but it was perfect. Instead of a large-scale museum installation, the works were hung haphazardly on pins, just like any other student show which would take place in this gallery. A small crowd flowed into the gallery and then out into the hallway where they served cookies and popcorn, and where legends like McGee could look at student work hung in display cases. The artists were present, adding to the inclusive environment, and many students passed by on their way to class without realizing that there were stars in their halls. It was a great little show, and was probably highly encouraging to students who are just starting their art careers. It was as if the artists took a step back to show just how far they have come and, maybe, just how far they can go next.

Is Barry McGee A Graffiti Art Sellout?
    Friday, 21 September 2012 /// Written by Trippe


Barry McGee at Prism LA May 2012

Invited to exhibit in one of New York's premier galleries a dozen years ago, Barry McGee responded by upending several trucks. He then bombed the wreckage with spraypaint and made it the centerpiece of an installation that confronted art collectors with an ersatz urban ghetto mimicking those he ordinarily vandalized on the downlow. One of the most memorable exhibitions in the 14-year history of Deitch Projects, the spectacle became the basis of McGee's nearly unparalleled popularity, culminating in his current midcareer retrospective at the Berkeley Art Museum. Through it all, he's struggled to reconcile mainstream appeal with his stated aim "to carry on pissing people off". It's been a losing battle. His furiously overturned trucks are now crowd-pleasers. ~read on @Forbes

Barry McGee special exhibit in San Francisco, Saturday
    Friday, 13 April 2012 /// Written by Trippe

This just in from Mickey Reyes' Instagram via Paule Anglim.

A special exhibition at our off-site space 1717 17th Street, San Francisco hours: Thursday - Saturday 11am -5pm April 14th - May 19th , 2012
Reception: April 14th from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m

San Francisco CA Gallery Paule Anglim is pleased to announce a special exhibition by Barry McGee at the gallery's off-site space at 1717 17th Street in San Francisco's Potrero Hill district. Contemporary Arts Centre describes the community acknowledging its present and past: an installation featuring work by McGee and fellow invited artists.


Moving easily across the boundaries of street art, historical High Art, private/anonymous art practices and museum-sanctioned collections, Barry McGee has created and collaborated on artworks appreciated by a broad audience. Acclaimed for his work as a graffiti artist and for his installations in galleries, museums and art festivals around the world, the artist crafts a language that resonates as a shared public experience as well as on a private intimate scale. Addressing social concerns of urban life, yet elaborating a unique personal style, McGee's works focus on a shared humanity, one painstakingly hand-detailed, finely-painted image at a time. McGee's work has been shown widely in the San Francisco community and internationally, including The Venice Biennale (2001) and the Biennale de Lyon (2009-2010,) the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA Los Angeles, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, the BALTIC Centre in England and the Watari-um Museum in Tokyo. A retrospective exhibition of his work will be presented at the Berkeley Art Museum opening August 2012.

A reception for McGee & the artists will be held Saturday, April 14th from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. Please visit the gallery's website at www.gallerypauleanglim.com

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.

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.

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.

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.
