Good Stuff
David Young, Eddie Colla, and Hugh Leeman @111 Minna

Wednesday, 08 January 2014 11:42

SAN FRANCISCO --- After their successful 3000 square foot installation based show in Los Angeles, artists David Young, Eddie Colla, and Hugh Leeman return to San Francisco. This Bay Area based trio will showcase new artworks from oil paintings to 3 dimensional assemblage sculptures. These new works will take over the entirety of 111 Minna Gallery's 4,700 square feet of open space.

While Young and Colla will add to their richly layered allegorically collaborative works, Leeman will show new oil paintings based on his imagination, created through a wet reductive process. These artworks will be on display for two months at 111 Minna Gallery. This show opens February 7th, 5p.m. till late at 111 Minna Street in downtown San Francisco.

Hugh Leeman

David Young

Eddie Colla


statement on the works:
"I threw away all my things, gave away all my paint and started over with black and white. I stopped painting from photos or life and painted from my head with my feelings through movement. I began using brushes less and less instead keeping my paint very wet and using a rubber squeegee to remove the paint from the canvas. I would dance while I painted, I was always alone, and at the summit even I was absent from the process, my subconscious creating on my behalf."
Hugh Leeman

Information:
What: Art Exhibition At 111 Minna Gallery
When: Opening Reception, Friday, February 7th, 5pm Till Late, Through March 29th
Who: Artists, David Young, Eddie Colla, and Hugh Leeman

Gappin' Love

Ok, the gap at Love Park in Philly is huge. If you don't skate, know that the gap is a monster and Love Park has been a very notable skate spot for the last 15 years or more... In any case, this clip of recent Skater of the Year Ishod Wair struck a chord with me because I used to film skateboarding years back, and even though skate parts flow smoothly together, gathering the footage takes a lot of time... and just like it did with Ishod here, it can be very much worth it.

MS DOS In Attesa

My newest work "MS DOS In Attesa" that was painted in Formia, Italy for the In Attesa Art project where bus stops are turned into spaces for art. It's my homage to the MS-DOS operating system from the 80s/90s. The project is appropriately named because "In Attesa" means waiting. Photo by Flavia Fiengo. --Giulio Vesprini

Mural by Brazilian Fredone-Fone

Monday, 30 December 2013 10:31

Fredone-Fone emailed over this great recent mural he did in Venezuela as part of the festival "Maracay se Activa".

The self-taught Brazilian artist Fredone-Fone is a son of a bricklayer who started doing signatures in the street in '95, and with time he creates the "HumanUrbano" a being of concrete and steel who lives in a city of meat and bone-, an alive dialog between two bodies: the human being and the urban one.

Consumerist Christmas Tree by Luzinterruptus
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 25 December 2013 12:00

Of all the posts that we have queued up to post here on FF, we thought that the Consumerist Christmas Tree by the German anonymous artistic group Luzinterruptus was best fitting for this Christmas day.

Whether you know, care/ don't care for Christmas and it's consumerist tendencies, we hope you have a brilliant Holiday Season and Happy New Year!... and not to get religous or anything, but loving how the Pope said this today.

Oh, and speaking of Luzinterruptus, check out their Radioactive Control by Luzinterruptus from 2011.

In November we went to festivals around the world… first we visited Glow in Eindhoven where we once again displayed our Portable River  and from there we went to Lumiere in Durham, to carry out a large-scale piece, which transcended the dates of the festival to continue to illuminate the city during the Christmas holidays.

We based this piece on the installation Plastic garbage guarding the museum, that we had already carried out at the Gewerbemuseum, But this time we wanted to give a double edge to our complaint, on the one hand the massive use of plastic bags and the consequences this has on the environment, and on the other hand, the excessive and unnecessary consumption that occurs during the Christmas holidays.

Winter Sailing

Monday, 09 December 2013 13:55

We did a little winter sailing yesterday on the SF Bay, can't stop thinking about it. Lovely 10 knots of wind with a nice genoa up and we were hitting 6 knots of boat speed. Lunch at Angel Island, and it's days like yesterday, miles from the city and enjoying all the quiet and island to ourselves, that reminds us how important having a boat is.

Buy this Santana and join us... or not, we'd rather have it all to ourselves anyway.

It took Rone five days to paint this excellent work.

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

Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.


Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...


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.


Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


NYCHOS @Fifty24SF

Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.


Gator Skater +video

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?


Ferris Plock Online Show Now Online as of April 25th

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.

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.
