Faile's Mural for Spectrum Art Projects
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 15 November 2013 14:03

TORONTO --- The finishing touches have been put on the large-scale, colorful and dynamic public art work by Canadian-born Patrick McNeil along with his art collaborator, Patrick Miller. Collectively known as FAILE, the Brooklyn-based duo designed the football-field-sized mural, located on Bathurst Street between Davenport and St. Clair in the city of Toronto.

Coordinated by Spectrum Art Projects, the ambitious installation marks the first large-scale FAILE mural in Canada. The images from their extensive archive were carefully selected as a nod to the history and heritage of the installation’s unique location, identifying the history of Aboriginal People's in the neighborhood, and the Tollkeeper’s Cottage, believed to be the only surviving tollgate from the 1800s in Canada. 

“This marks our fourth project in Toronto and FAILE's first major project in Canada. We’re thrilled that Patrick and Patrick were able to create this extraordinary piece – one that reflects the community and its history,” say Simon Cole of Spectrum Art Projects. “It has been great to see the neighborhood engaging with and embracing the installation and, now that the mural is complete, the excitement is palpable. We’re certain this piece will be an iconic addition to the area for years to come.”

"Car Poolers" by Alejandro Cartagena

Monday, 11 November 2013 13:40

Love the series "Car Poolers" from photographer Alejandro Cartagena.

Cartagena takes photographs in Monterrey, Mexico, documenting parts of everyday life there that he sees as depicting "a global issue from a local perspective." In a town that has a relatively new, booming construction market, Cartagena decided to document a side of the day laborers' lives that might not often be seen: the commute to and from work at various construction sites.

Cosplay by Klaus Pitchler
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 05 November 2013 14:17

We had no idea what the hell Cosplay was when we first saw these images. Had a feeling it had something to do with Comic Con people who are really into their D&D/ mythical/ cartoon/ video game/ comic book characters and really enjoy playing dress up and getting into some serious role playing action... An extension of Furry fandom? In any event the Cosplay costumes can get very involved/ boobie.

These portraits of Cosplayers in their homes are taken by Klaus Pitchler and are part of his series Just the Two of Us. Below are just a few of our favorites. For more, be sure to check his site HERE.

 
Steve Powers US Embassy Mural
Written by Trippe   
Tuesday, 05 November 2013 10:54

COPENHAGEN --- US graffiti/ street artist/ letter/ design artist, Steve Powers just completed a mural project for the US Embassy in Copenhagen on a 55-meter long temporary wooden construction wall. Henrik brings us PHOTOS of Powers and his helpers working on the mural from the other day. PHOTOS

We wanted to do something different. The long, grey temporary construction wall in front of the Embassy building site provided us with a perfect opportunity, and V1 Gallery helped us identify just the right artist. With his mural, Steve pays tribute to a Danish icon, Hans Christian Andersen, whose stories many Americans grew up with, myself included" says Emily Ronek, Cultural Attaché, at the U.S. Embassy. "I am really excited about this, and I hope the thousands of Copenhageners who pass by the Embassy every day will enjoy this as a token of the great friendship between Denmark and the U.S. ~read on

Alex Ziv, an update with
Written by Rachel Ralph   
Thursday, 31 October 2013 09:13

Our friend Alex Ziv has been a very busy man. While most of the time you can find him locked away in his SFAI studio, his work has gotten to travel the world.

Ziv has achieved a milestone with his participation in a museum show called Brilliant Optics at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art (Indiana) showing alongside artists like Dabs Myla. The exhibition, based around the central theme of color, will be travelling to other venues throughout the country for the next three years, so keep your eyes open for it at a museum near you.

The Slovakian company Retart has also chosen Ziv's work to feature on wallets, sunglass cases, and scarves (soon), allowing his work to travel further via the pockets of his fans. Both the wallets and cases sold quickly at art fairs this summer, but you can get yours from their site. Clearly, no matter the medium, his work is being seen and loved by a lot of people and we're proud to say he's one of our own. --Rachel Ralph ~ rachel(at)fecalface.com

Husband-and-wife Davide Luciano and Claudia Ficca have teamed up to create Meals Interrupted, a photography series of dining tables abruptly disrupted by various events, namely, a bee swarm, a devastating fire, a full-blown cafeteria food fight, a calculated mobster hit, and a heavy rainfall. Each shot vividly captures the disappointment and sense of abandonment that evidently accompanies a gathering that is suddenly and unexpectedly ended.

Statue Of A Homeless Jesus Startles A Wealthy Community

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

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

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

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.

San Francisco based Brian Barneclo was commissioned in 2006 to paint a HUGE mural on the side of Foods Co on Shotwell at 14th Streets. After some time on its own, it got pretty taxed by misc graffiti and pigeon shit.


A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the citys shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesnt end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.


John Felix Arnold @BRIC House, Brooklyn

In the year or so that I've known Felix, almost every one of his shows has had a live musical element and it seems perfect that he would be included in a show called Art Into Music. He commandeered the corner of the gallery to create an installation that houses not only his drawing, but also an entire drum kit, amps and a dude playing a guitar. The warm wood paneling stands out in contrast to the matte grey boom-box tower and the muted wall of album covers and looks like a beacon calling to the crowd saying "this is what you shoud be looking at." However, it's not in a "look at me" attention-starved desperation, more like a welcoming invitation into his world.
