... since the year 2000.

Back when most art aficionados were still scratching their heads over the whole concept of the internet, a skateboard fanatic named John Trippe moved to San Francisco and taught himself to code. Fecal Face, Trippe’s 13-year-old website, is now an internationally renowed art forum...

The tight knit community that has built up around Fecal Face is an integral part of the site’s success. San Francisco’s Mission School family of artists that exploded in the nineties, the punk, folk art, skateboarding and graffiti-inspired set that mirrored New York’s Alleged Gallery crew of creative retrobates first fostered that very feeling. Barry McGee, Margaret Kilgallen and Chris Johanson could be seen as the trinity of artists that initially set the way for Trippe and Fecal Face. Now with over 13,000 visitors a day and 390,000 uniques a month, Fecal Face is leading the charge, boasting not only a history, heritage and absolute love for San Francisco (and beyond) but a multi-layered and content-rich site, transcending the usual art zine and art blog dynamics.

Artists like the brilliant So Cal psychedelia surfer and painter Kelsey Brookes contributes his success to the mighty Fecal family and the power of its interviews, high profile art star contributors, photography, hourly-updated news, forum, creative jobs database, obscure events calendar and the passionate, personable tone of the editorial. Welcome to the sun-shining, glorious world of Fecal Face. Check out John’s own High5s blog for him and his wife Jessica’s adventures in art culture.
