Owen Takabayashi Preview & Interview
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 26 August 2011 10:16

We're not entirely sure what's going on after looking at some preview photos that SF's Ever Gold Gallery emailed over, but their second residency program looks interesting as SFAI graduate Owen Takabayashi prepares for the opening on Sept 1st. The residency continues for 3 weeks with a closing reception set for Sept 24th. Interview with Owen Takabayashi by Gregory Ito.

For Takabayashi’s new body of work and site-specific installation he will be appropriating the utility of found, mass-produced objects.

A couple weeks back we checked out the Divisadero Art Walk on cold San Francisco summer evening. Compared to the last Divis art walk we made it to, this one seemed a lot less crowded. No doubt the cold weather was the culprit.

A few weeks back we were in Sao Paulo and had the honor of getting a behind the scenes of the upcoming show "De Dentro e De Fora" at one of South America's greatest museums MASP (photos). Our friend and Sao Paulo resident Flavio Samelo reports on the show which opened last week. Besides being a fine artist himself, Flavio is also the photo editor of the great Brazilian skate magazine VISTA.

This week in São Paulo, Brazil, one of the most important Museums of South America, the MASP, opens a super nice exhibition called “De Dentro e De Fora” which means something like “Inside Out, Outside In.” The exhibition features the amazing works of artists, JR (France), Swoon (USA), Invader (France), Remed (França), Point (Czech Republic), Defi (Argentina), Chu (Argentina), Tec (Argentina), and Bijari (Brazil).

Hahaha. Got this great image from Portugal based Mr. Phomer earlier in the day. Which side do you stand on?

Got an email from Austin based photographer, Keith Young, and his photos on his site are wonderful. Keith has shot for magazines like Vice, Frankie, Mint, Huh, Slice, Positive, The Photo Album: Vol. 1, Shashin Collective, Tell Mum Everything is Ok, Austin Monthly, etc...

As a lover of images, there's something about Texas being so visually interesting. Good place for a photographer and, imagine, a filmmaker. Interesting scenes abound. Check a small taste of Keith's photo skills here and be sure to continue onto his site for more.

Big Questions by Anders Nilsen
Written by Trippe   
Thursday, 14 July 2011 11:20
1pm update: Well, that didn't take long. Right at 1pm when FFDG opened the doors, Clark (below) swooped in and grabbed the book. For the rest who may want the book, go here and order one.

Drawn and Quarterly was kind enough to mail us out this massive (658 paged) magnum opus collection from Chicago based graphic novelist Anders Nilsen. 10 years in the making, Big Questions follows the minimalist story detailing the metaphysical quandaries of the occupants of an endless plain, existing somewhere between a dream and a Russian steppe --- the story's birds and snakes have more to say than their human counterparts and there are hints of the classic hero's journey, but the easy moral that closes most fables is left here as open and ambiguous. Rather than lending its world meaning, Nilsen's parable lets the questions wander out to go where they will.

If you want this beautiful book, stop in FFDG sometime during open hours (Wed-Sat, 1-6pm) and grab it. First come, first... can have the book for free. It's a great collection, and as much as we want it, we'd rather you enjoy it.

The thing is thick.


VIA DRAWN & QUARTERLY: Come out to see the tour that's more than ten years in the making! That's right, folks, the brilliant (and handsome...) Anders Nilsen is going on tour for 600+ page masterwork Big Questions, and he's coming to a town near you!

West Coasters, he's starting with you in July, so make sure not to miss him:

07/20 Family, LA
07/21-24 Comic-Con, San Diego
07/26 Needles and Pens, SF
07/27 Pegasus, Berkeley
07/29 Floating World, Portland
07/30 Fantagraphics, Seattle

Last Ride 200 Miles Up
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 08 July 2011 09:20

It could be our age and how we grew up with the space shuttle. It could be that we're major nerds over here... Whatever it is, it sure was sad watching the last shuttle launch this morning. It also seems slightly symbolic of the future of the United States. Funny that now, decades after the cold war, US astronauts have to take rides to the space station on Russian spacecraft.

Ryan De La Hoz at Seattle's Flatcolor
Tuesday, 22 April 2014 10:52

SEATTLE --- San Francisco based Ryan De La Hoz opens a show of new works at Flat Color on May 1st. We love Ryan's work and have shown it many times throughout the years. Ryan will be also showing at LA - Juxtapoz Psychedelic Show, The Well, LA, CA April 26th 2014 - SF - Paper Cuts, Spoke Art, SF, CA May 3rd 2014

Working in unconventional mediums such as woven blankets, puzzles, and faux marble, De La Hoz has pioneered an innovative style in a class of its own. Collages of white noise, flowers and tie-dye are all hand cut and assembled to create mystic portals of intrigue. Heavily influenced by themes of death and rebirth, past and present, and the collision of modern culture with antiquity; Form and Void is mysterious look into the odyssey of creation, destruction, and an examination of society at large. -show details

"Arrangement" by Michelle Fleck
Friday, 18 April 2014 10:23

This morning we take a closer look at this beautiful painting by San Francisco based Michelle Fleck now showing at FFDG.

Arrangement measures 24"x30", acrylic and aerosol on panel - inquires: info(at)ffdg.net

Michelle Fleck is a painter living in San Francisco. Her work focuses on the relationship between man and the landscape, and the marks we leave on it. Influenced by everyday life in the city, her paintings serve as snapshots of an ongoing intersection of the natural and man-made world. She strives to make work that has a sense of relevancy in a culture driven by a need for change and newness.

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.

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

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

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.


Flavio Samelo's Downtown Sao Paulo Murals

Our buddy Flavio Samelo down there in Brazil does all kinds of great work including this recent mural project in downtown Sao Paulo in front of one of the most important modern buildings of Oscar Niemeyer from the 60's, THE COPAN.
