Marc McKee at HVW8
    Monday, 25 April 2011 /// Written by Michael Hsiung

Back in 1989 Marc McKee started creating skateboard graphics for World Industries, Blind, 101, Menace, A-Team and Almost. Probably most infamously known for his funny, offensive, and provocative graphics which were hugely popular then and remain so today. McKee, also editor of Big Brother Magazine for the first four years, later worked on Blunt Snowboard Magazine and continues to make art for skate companies today. Visiting Philadelphia artist Shawn Beeks and I went to check out this show, which we were both blown away by McKee's originals of some of the most notorious boards, from the Napping Negro graphic to Natas's Challegener Explosion board to the Fucked Up Blind Kids Series.

Hubba Memories
    Monday, 14 February 2011 /// Written by Trippe

Skaters -- we walked past Hubba yesterday... Well, we passed a mound of dirt where Hubba used to be before it was torn down. In any case, it's nice to remember what it used to be.

R.I.P. HUBBA HIDEOUT
    Tuesday, 25 January 2011 /// Written by Trippe

We just learned that probably most iconic San Francisco skate spot, HUBBA HIDEOUT, is being torn down. Besides the already dead EMB, Hubba was truely an SF Skateboarding icon and makes us sad to see it go. I personally have skated it many years ago, have filmed countless people skating it and have taken quite a few hippers on it over the years. Perfect height. Perfect location, and it will truely be missed... Kinda makes ya sad. A moment of silence.


The destruction of the long-time iconic San Francisco skate spot, Hubba Hideout began yesterday with the spot's top ledge already ripped out by city employees. The remainder of the walkway, including the retaining wall ledges that have been a tremendous part of street skating's history are scheduled for removal today, according to city employees on hand yesterday who were erecting fences around the area. -continue reading

IPhone Skatey Skate Skate
    Thursday, 02 December 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Skaters: We were going to talk about the interesting story of Steve Martin and his "botched" interview at the 92nd Y in NYC, but you already read that on the NYTimes. Instead, Urich suggested the Stick Skater IPhone game last night. Been playing it, and it's pretty addictive. Well worth the 99 cents. Get it.

Oh, and speaking of skating, SLAP's One in a Million is ongoing and our friend Alex Klein put together a little "Real World" style video.

 

Skate & Create - Behind the Scenes
    Tuesday, 23 November 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Fecal Pal Matt Irving does all of the creative work for Adidas Skateboarding along with Juice Design here in SF and guest blogs up a really interesting project Adidas was involved with last spring. Transworld Skateboarding invited 4 shoe teams to compete in an artistic competition where each team is given a warehouse, skate obstacles and given 10 days to shoot a short video which will be judged on the level of skating, creativity, the use of obstacles, and overall image and video quality.

This blog is a little behind the scenes from the 10 days in Matt's words.

Thanks, Almost & Enjoi
    Tuesday, 16 November 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Thanks to Almost Skateboards and Enjoi for completely rerigging my closet and setup with new gear. Been doing skateboard shit for over half my life, and amazed at how the quality has gone up. Enjoi makes some fine gentleman's clothing. Don't be shy, and we're digging on the man of the mountain vibes they got going on. Skating about town = hot. Camping with a bottle of whiskey = hot. Artshow going = hot. Win win.

Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul
    Thursday, 11 November 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Skateistan: To Live And Skate Kabul
A beautifully shot film that follows the lives of a group of young skateboarders in Afghanistan. Operating against the backdrop of war and bleak prospects, the Skateistan charity project is the world’s first co-educational skateboarding school, where a team of international volunteers work with girls and boys between the ages of 5 and 17, an age group largely untouched by other aid programmes.

 

Eric Wollam Sat in LA
    Wednesday, 20 October 2010 /// Written by Trippe

My good friend Eric Wollam who I've known since high school has been the art director for Almost Skateboards for many years now. Besides being quite the ripper himself, Wollam is a talent with design and with the art workings. He'll be showing some boards he designed as well as some work this Saturday down in San Pedro @Sunken City Skates. Complimentary beer as well.

 

ClipODay: One Way or Another III
    Monday, 04 October 2010 /// Written by Van Edwards

Michael Hsiung traveled around the US w/ a bunch of dirty ass skater/ artists to put on art shows and to get shred gnar under the title of One Way or Another. Well, Corey Adams (MachoTailDrop director) was filming the whole time and has edited the footage down into a 5 part feature. Part 3 is the latest.

Barker Barrett just stopped in Fecal Face... Haven't seen Barker since doing things for a shoe company awhile back. The guy is a joy to watch on a mini ramp.

 

FLATGROUND CASE STUDY - ClipODay
    Tuesday, 10 August 2010 /// Written by Trippe

From our buddy Kirk Dianda comes this awesome short. Michael Hsiung informed via email. Thanks, Michael!... Words below come straight from Kirk's computer typing fingers.

The FLATGROUND CASE STUDY is a short film I made, starring Chad Tim Tim, that played at the Love & Guts art show in Costa Mesa, on August 5th

The idea was to create a non-linear story that didn't rely on a musical soundtrack. This way people could watch from any point within the film, for any amount of time. So at the exhibition, the video looped seamlessly throughout opening night.

The film is an experiment in documenting style and technique, which was played back in a gallery setting (and now online) in a way that depicts the similarities of tricks through motion and style.

Most of the video is presented in slow-mo, with the hopes that you can observe the shapes and technique through overlapping imagery… The basics of skateboarding, silhouetted and colored, come alive and create a moving Rorschach test.

It was fun to come into this with a low-budget, creative way of thinking. The production process is simply Chad Tim Tim and myself, a white wall, two cameras, and a few lights, and then we edited it on Final Cut; no green screen or After Effects.

SF Giants' World Series Trophy & DLX

I'm not sure how many people are lucky enough to have The San Francisco Giants 3 World Series trophies put on display at their work for the company's employees to enjoy during their lunch break, but that's what happened the other day at Deluxe. So great.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.

Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON

Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.


Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...


Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.


Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


NYCHOS @Fifty24SF

Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.


Gator Skater +video

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?


Ferris Plock Online Show Now Online as of April 25th

5 new wonderful large-scale paintings on wood panel are available. visit: www.ffdg.net


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


Tyler Bewley ~ Recent Works

Some great work from San Francisco based Tyler Bewley.


Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery

While walking our way across San Francisco on Saturday we swung through the opening receptions for Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery in the Mission.


Jeremy Fish Solo Show in Los Angeles

Jeremy Fish opens Hunting Trophies tonight, Saturday April 5th, at the Los Angeles based Mark Moore Gallery. The show features new work from Fish inside the "hunting lodge" where viewers climb inside the head of the hunter and explore the history of all the animals he's killed.


The Albatross and the Shipping Container

Beautiful piece entitled "The Albatross and the Shipping Container", Ink on Paper, Mounted to Panel, 47" Diameter, by San Francisco based Martin Machado now on display at FFDG. Stop in Saturday (1-6pm) to view the group show "Salt the Skies" now running through April 19th. 2277 Mission St. at 19th.


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.
