Victor Malagon's Wood Cut Graffiti
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 01 June 2012 12:33

I am a painter out here in California. I create work that is a clash of my graffiti style, a bit of graphics and razor sharp points into these shaped panels. All work is flat, just painted to look 3D. I hand cut these wood panels, and paint them with Oils, sometimes with Spray paint. The usual size is about 24x48 inches. -Victor Malagon

These are great, Victor. Thanks for emailing them over... Different obviously, but kind of reminds us of Graffiti Technica.

MURALS @ The Venice Art Walk
Written by Daniel Rolnik   
Friday, 01 June 2012 10:34

It's not everyday that during an art walk you get two sick murals, let alone one. And that just so happened to occur at the 2012 Venice Art Walk. Only a few blocks awat from one another, the artists Jesse Hazelip and Aaron Axelrod were working on their individual walls.

Mural by Jesse Hazelip

Jesse flew out from his new home in New York to paint and put up one of the most ginormous wheat-pastes I've ever seen on what was dubbed the RED FORT of Venice Beach. The piece features his epic renderings of a warthog and bull in front of gorgeous red and blue lettering. And then inside the building was a pop-up exhibit featuring his original ball-point sketch – which is so masterfully done that it's hard to believe it was done.

And while Jesse had started his mural earlier on in the week, due to it's towering scale, Aaron Axelrod was putting his entire body into the colors and motions of a wall built specifically for him at the entrance of the auction portion of the event. Within four hours he had gotten up two wheat-pastes, an energetic splattering of paint, and a mannequin complete with a light-up halo. So, just as the night fell upon the Earth, the piece lit up and sparked everyone's imaginations. -Daniel Rolnik

Six Months In The Merchant Marine
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 11 May 2012 12:58

Remember Marty Machado's great feature he did here at Fecal Face called Life and Work on a Containership? Well, over the years he took a lot of video and has recently got around to putting together this 20 minute short below.

Marty is also a very talented painter, and his newest paintings are on display here in SF at Gallery Hijinks through May 26th for the show Too Far Gone. View the show here.

In this short documentary, I tried to answer some of the common questions that I usually get about shipping. The footage I took myself using fairly basic cameras that I could fit in my pocket while I was on the job as a deckhand. The story follows me on my six month journey around the world on a container ship which was on a run between New York and Singapore via the Suez Canal. Thanks for watching. -Martin

Murals by Flavio Samelo (Brazil)

Tuesday, 01 May 2012 11:31

We had the pleasure of meeting Flavio Samelo when we were in Sao Paulo last summer (blog). He's a skateboarder/ photographer and talented artist. Here are some photos from some of his recent mural done in Rio de Janeiro.

Flavio Samelo submits goodness from his native Sao Paulo, Brazil and/ or from around all of South America for Fecal Face.

The people from Redley, invited me to make a mural on the facade of their Ipanema store in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The location is perfect for the type of work that I am developing. My current work is inspired by the optical studies of Isaac Newton, and how light refraction works, and as I am a photographer I really enjoy studying light. -Flavio Samelo

Mural work also done in Sao Paulo curated by ROJO.

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.

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.

Brian Barneclo's 225' Food Chain Mural

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.
