Words & Photographs by Michael C. Hsiung
This is the LA based artist's first show in LA since 2009. Aside from owning and operating National Forest Design with fellow artist Justin Krietemeyer, he still finds time to work on both commissioned and self-inspired art projects of his own. Influenced by images, fashion and graphics discovered in Time Life Encyclopedias from 1965-1972, thrift stores, and The Moody Blues.

Crept a ride and arrived at the Known Gallery on N. Fairfax for the show. You walk in to catch a glimpse of this giant mural by Steven Harrington.

I kind of couldn't look away from this wall . . but that was unfortunate because I think I missed the sculptures and other various works. . better reason to go back and check it out.

More graphite totem works.

Interview w/ Joshua Petker
    Wednesday, 18 July 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Los Angeles based Joshua Petker recently closed the show "Adrift" at Lebasse Projects a few weeks back. After switching up his style and direction to inlcude these simplier/ nautical/ ship themed works, we had the chance to ask him a few questions about this new body of work.

There's a lot of nautical action taking place in the new works. Where does this angle come from?

I've always been interested in juxtaposing beauty and melancholia in my work and it was important to me I continue in that vein whilst expanding my visual vocabulary. This new series of work is built on an interest in conceptual painting rather than on the aesthetic approach I've taken in years past. I was very inspired by thoughts of vastness. I uncovered a quote by Anna Freud that said, "We are imprisoned in the realm of life, like a sailor on his tiny boat, on an infinite ocean" and though I found this quote well after I began painting, it is the same illustrative metaphor that I had in my mind informing the direction of my work.

Been awhile since you've been up on the site. What have you been doing these last few years?

I became a full-time artist a few years ago which has been really important to the evolution of my work. I've been able to read and research more than I was able to while balancing a day job with time in the studio. Having the freedom to focus fully on my interests has allowed me to see more art, learn more about art, and generally focus all of my attention on art and philosophy and this has been very important to my work.

I welcomed a baby girl into the world a little more than a year ago and that has been a bigger joy in my life than I honestly expected it would be. I spend a lot of time with her.

Los Angeles has become an even more interesting place to be an artist in the last few years. Lots of galleries and artists here making the place interesting.

The Status Faction Interview
    Thursday, 29 March 2012 /// Written by Daniel Rolnik

The Status Faction [T$F] have been a force of the underground Los Angeles graffiti/street-art scene for the last ten years. And when one of their members moved to Atlanta [GA] they took over that city as well. They are unique in the fact that each one of their paintings usually incorporates some form of performance – like the time they showed up to a party in full swat team gear and then painted a giant wall without anyone's permission. Or, the time they decked out an abandonded house to look like suicide scene and then left the door open for everyone to peek in. For T$F, it's not being the coolest, or the best, it's just about going out every single night, hand pulling every silke-screened poster, pressing spray tips with their fingers, and not being afraid to get grime. T$F is the stand against the computer.

Words & Interview by Daniel Rolnik

Why did you guys start T$F?

During the turn of the millennium, we noticed a lack of Angelenos mixing street art with traditional graffiti. So, we abandoned most of our individual identities as artists to focus on promoting one unified name - The $tatus Faction. The soul of our goal was to form a collective where each member would be a jack-of-all-trades. A crew where everyone could do whatever they wanted, get away with it, be ever changing, and totally unpredictable.

Is that why your work is so diverse?

We strive to make a point of not being pegged as one trick ponies, by constantly reinventing ourselves. We don't want T$F to become a repetitive brand like some of the other crews out there, which are basically t-shirt companies now. So, for us, it's more about putting our hearts into every piece we make and that's why we like it all to have a handmade feel to it. The imperfections and minor differences between each piece are what makes it human.

So none of your work is done digitally?

A big part of our art has to do with the process of physically creating it, which you can't get from pushing a couple buttons on your computer and hitting print. We mean, what would most street artists do if computers were wiped off the Earth? They'd be totally lost.

LA Zine Fest - 2012
    Tuesday, 06 March 2012 /// Written by Daniel Rolnik

2012 was the first year of the LA Zine Fest and it was insane! When I met with the team organizing it 6 months ago we were all talking about how sick it would be if only 200 people showed up. So, you can imagine our surprise when close to (if not over) 3,000 visitors walked through the upstairs of the Last Bookstore where the event was taking place. Almost every exhibitor sold out of at least one title - like my tablemates Brass Tacks Press (thanks for the pizza bro's!) and my friend and fellow FecalFace contributor Michael C. Hsiung.

Luckily, the crowd was peaceful, kind, and extremely awkward. Otherwise, I don't know, it wouldn't have felt right. However, the main attraction of the day, besides all the wonderfully weird and creative people, was when Henry Rollins did an extremely in-depth Q&A with legendary punk rock zine man V. Vale. The discussion got really nerdly, really fast, but the crowd was still glued to every word exchanged between the two.

The girls who organized the LA Zine Fest did such a fantastic job at making everyone taking part feel like family and everyone walking around feel accepted. They even put together a library, where folks uncomfortable with reading zines in front of their makers could check each one out, pressure-free, and then purchase them without even having time to blush. And it's because of their attention to detail that such a diverse crowd showed up – from families to an old man who claimed to have a grandson named Daniel and then took 20 of my pins. I don't have a grudge against him though, they were free anyways – I just want to know what he actually did with all of them. -Daniel Rolnik

Photos of Os Gemeos at Prism Los Angeles
    Wednesday, 29 February 2012 /// Written by Colin Day

Os Gemeos opened there latest show, Miss You at Prism Gallery in LA this past Saturday. They continue there exploration of the surreal and gravity in this latest body of work.

The installation took 6 weeks to complete and the results are a fully immersive experience that gives the public a taste of the magical world that flows from the twins' spray cans. Upon entering the gallery, a floating yellow head invites you to peer into the glowing blue hole from the bottom, briefly taking you out of the crowd into an infinity mirrored isolation chamber with music being pumped in. Glowing yellow drips float upward out of the ground and floors, walls and ceilings are all covered in paint and murals creating a truly remarkable experience. Giant detailed murals grace the walls of the stairway and there is a collaboration with older brother Arnoldo, as well as some very special knitted pieces by their mother. They also re-imagined their interactive projection room from the 'Fermata' at Museu Vale in Brazil.

The amount of detail in the exhibit is a truly astonishing feat which is impressive even before one sees the collection of new works that were created for the show! All things considered, the twins have created what I believe to be a masterpiece of a show, and I feel fortunate to have witnessed it coming to fruition.

The twins... aka Os Gemeos

Rich Jacobs @New Image Art - LA
    Thursday, 02 February 2012 /// Written by Michael C. Hsiung

I headed down to New Image Art gallery Saturday, January 28th to catch Rich Jacobs' Look Into It – If You Know How, which also featured a mini move group show including Sandy Yang, Tobin Yelland, Aya Muto, Jeff Canham, Billy Sprague, Orion Shepherd, Kelly Nicholson, Jordin Isip, Simone Shubuck, Erika Borboa, Clint Woodside, and Tim Kerr.

Rich, known for his colorful, loose and sketch-like character faces, had tons of new works, ranging from new abstract pattern pieces to larger works painted on wood. Another highlight of the show as well was when Harry Wirtz Elementary School assignment winner Terrence Barr and his mother stopped by to show Rich and folks his drawings, some of which were inspired by Rich's paintings. Here are some photos from that evening.

LA's Bitchcraft
    Tuesday, 13 December 2011 /// Written by Daniel Rolnik

Fellow FecalFace contributor and artist Michael C. Hsiung sent me an invite to the Bitchcraft Trading Post event just outside Silverlake in Atwater Village. I showed up at a super industrial parking lot where hipsters, vintage hounds, and zinesters were gathered around tables selling all sorts of unique goods - from wolves' tooth necklaces to elegant terrariums. Hell, there was even a surf shop. It was a freakishly cold day in LA and even though the vendors hands had frozen over they all kept smiles on their faces and vibes high. Oh yeah, there was also a woman dressed up as a fat santa running around and a really good looking model-esque girl with half of her hair dyed black and the other half bleached blonde - radical! -Daniel Rolnik

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.


Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON

Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.

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.

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.
