C.R. Stecyk's film "FIN"
Written by Daniel Rolnik   
Monday, 30 January 2012 14:14

As cool as it is to be nostalgic about an artist's past, you don't have to hold onto it. Especially since there are people like C.R. Stecyk creating works in the now with even more punch than they had 30 years ago - a trait that can only be attributed to the character of a true artist. In fact, he's just made a new experimental film named "FIN", that's packed full of the elements of culture and spirit which have always fascinated Stecyk and his fans.

The film will be premiering at H Space Gallery on February 8th and if you think it's going to be a regular old screening, think again - since Stecyk and the creative team at Hurley will be fully transforming the space into an old movie theater. I'm talking a floor to ceiling installation that will be 110% unforgettable. Not to mention that "Fin" will continue to evolve even after its screening - taking on a life as a limited edition clothing run and web series.

If you don't know who C.R. Stecyk is, all you have to do is open up practically any skateboarding magazine and point to any page knowing that what you're seeing wouldn't exist without his vision of how to the capture the radical images and lifestyles that forever inspired our imaginations. From his Dogtown Articles in the 1970's, to his recent exhibit of posters at the Art In The Streets exhibit at MOCA - the man is just unstoppable. And so the film based on the lives of the z-boys he made part of history might have been called Lords Of Dogtown, but Stecyk was and is still most definitely the king.

F.C.A. Friday @FFDG
Written by Trippe

Future Colors of America
Collaborative works by: Albert Reyes, Matt Furie, & Aiyana Udesen
Opening: Friday, Jan 20th (6-9pm)
FFDG, San Francisco
2277 Mission St.

Future Colors of America formed in 2006 when San Francisco based Aiyana Udesen introduced her boyfriend and artist, Matt Furie, to her long time friend and also a San Francisco Art Institute alumnus, Albert Reyes (Los Angeles). Many hours were spent entertaining each other through visual drawing jokes. Many top-secret drawing techniques were traded. Many mysteries were solved/ created and, to keep the fun rolling, the trio began mailing back and forth unfinished drawings for the other(s) to complete. This routine of postal collaboration has led to approximately twenty-million pieces of art on mat board, bristol board, or book covers, depending on which artist started the work. For this show F.C.A. will be showing over one hundred new pieces with an emphasis on horror, Lindsay Lohan, and naked ladies. The first iteration of F.C.A. was showcased at Giant Robot in 2009 and the second at FFDG, July 2010. This is the third F.C.A. exhibition. ...a DIY sensibility, illustrative aesthetic, and fuck-all attitude who's charmingly hilarious pop commentary is indicative of something we don't feel comfortable defining, but goddammit, we like it... via Hi-Fructose

---
From Hi Fructose July, 2010 - The central hubs of, what we here at Hi-Fructose have decided to go with "New Contemporary Art", have always found identity and definition in their unique voices, locales, and perspective. For New York, many would point to the origins in train bombing and popularization of modern graffiti, for those in sunny Southern California one could reasonably identify the rise of the pop-surrealism masters, and for San Francisco it is the glory days of the late '90s and early aughts that has captivated museums, art historians, and the blue-chip market. One problem with the umbrella term, "Mission School", however, is that while McGee and Kilgallen were busy defining their own movement, the next generation of artists with a uniquely San Franciscan aesthetic were busy cutting class, revisiting A-HA, and in general, "missin' school".

For a movement to begin, to take shape, and to grow, it all needs, to some degree to occur organically. The shape of a city, the signs of the times, the influences we all are suspect to, come together at the right place and the right time and before you know it, several people are expressing themselves in original, yet similar ways. The Future Colors of America, the trifecta consisting of Albert Reyes (who now lives in LA), Matt Furie, and Aiyana Udesen, have created their own illustrative voice, a worldview who's origins are seemingly found uniquely in San Francisco (Jay Howell, Ferris Plock, and Porous Walker spring to mind as well), that is expressed with a DIY sensibility, illustrative aesthetic, and fuck-all attitude who's charmingly hilarious pop commentary is indicative of something we don't feel comfortable defining, but goddammit, we like it.

The three artists are currently on view at FFDG, and though we for one hope that these truly are the future colors of America, at the very least we'll settle for them being the future colors of the Bay Area.

MCD LAB # 3: Fake Sunset - concept and inspiration

MCD LAB # 3: Fake Sunset is an ambitious project of art and music, that throughout 2011 will connect different art galleries, artists and players from the creative scene in Brazil. This year's edition is curated by NOZ.ART (Ana Ferraz, Lucas Ribeiro Pexão and Tristan Rault), and FFDG's John Trippe.

The starting point for this experience is a classic image from California, intentionally used in excess, playing with the irony of this cliché figure which influenced much of the world: the gradient sunset, adorned with the silhouettes of palm trees. Images widely used in t-shirt prints, stickers, skateboard decks and surfboards. An icon of the message that emanated from California for decades, just as, in another moment, the subculture of aggressive surfing, illegal skateboarding and hardcore music was "smuggled" beyond U.S. borders. An imaginary with vibrant colors that arrived in Brazil through movies, magazines, records, video clips and even video games to be reproduced by young people, invading even concrete cities where the skyline (and the sunset) are obstructed by buildings.

Fake Sunset seeks a reflection on the influence of the Californian imaginary on Brazilian subcultures. Californian and Brazilian artists were invited to create new silkscreen prints for a group show. The only rules to create the graphics were: the landscape orientation of the paper, and one gradient on the image. Besides that, each artist was free to address their unique point of view about the influence in question, creating a real bridge through the sunset to finally connect these creative communities. All screen prints were produced in Brazil, by the Fullhouse studio. The series of exhibitions opened on July in Sao Paulo and were showed in another 4 Brazilian capitals. Together with the 10 radiant prints, each city had a site-specific artwork, create by one (or more) of the ten artists invited.

About FFDG's new Mission location

Last year at this time FFDG (www.ffdg.net) was located in a small storefront on Gough St at Market St in a slightly desolate location. In March of last year, FFDG moved to a larger space in the heart of the Lower Haight next to Upper Playground and were just getting settled when on Sept 27th a four alarm fire tore through the top floor of the building. Massive amounts of water soaked the entire building ruining everything including FFDG's space. After gathering their damp things, to continue their schedule while searching for a new home, FFDG temporarily located to Clement St in San Francisco's Inner Richmond. After only searching a couple weeks, FFDG found their new 700 square foot home on bustling Mission Street just walking distance to some of the best restaurants and bars in the city. "I love being over here", says owner John Trippe. "It's great to be in the heart of such a dynamic neighborhood. I mean, we're across the street from the 2nd best new restaurant in the US", he says referring to Mission Chinese which was recently voted by Bon Appetit as the US's 2nd best new eatery. "It's one of the best culturally diverse neighborhoods in the city and we're so happy to be here". FFDG opens their first show "MCD LAB#3: Fake Sunset" on Friday, January 6th (6-9pm).

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

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.

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
