NYC is Damp About Banksy
Thursday, 03 October 2013 07:20

(Reuters) - British graffiti artist Banksy revealed Tuesday his first work in what he described as an exhibition on walls throughout New York City this month - a painting of boys disobeying prohibitions on graffiti.

Banksy, a pseudonym for the elusive artist who first emerged in the streets of Bristol, England and whose real identity is unknown, announced the "Better Out Than In" show along with new artwork in Manhattan on his website along with a caption saying: "The street is in play." ~continue reading

Haight Fillmore Apartments
Tuesday, 01 October 2013 07:50

2 years ago the building on the corner of Fillmore and Haight caught fire and it displaced not only FFDG and the ground floor businesses but also the many people in rent controlled apartments above. Sounds as though many of those people took a payout and thus don't have first dibs on the remodeled apartments that are now back on the market.

What was once a one bedroom apartment that an artist could afford is now $3,995/ month! Yep, a 700 square foot one bedroom is on the market for $3,995/ month. Ouch ~right here.

Yep, that Home Depot cabinetry can be yours for a measly $3,995/ month.
 
RIP, Henry Trippe
Saturday, 28 September 2013 10:37

Life comes and, just like that, life goes--- My father, Henry Trippe, passed away last night in our family hometown of Easton, Maryland next to his loving wife, Wilma... Obviously, a little shaken over here... and to people who we owe emails to and the like, sorry for the delay as we prepare to fly home for the funeral.

Without him, this site would never have been possible, and I want to pay tribute... He was a very kind and sensitive man who I'm so happy to have called my father... If there's an afterlife, I hope he's out there somewhere having a damn good time. He deserves it!

The universe lost one hell of a good man. RIP Mr. Trippe.

Art Dealer Admits to Role in Fraud
Tuesday, 17 September 2013 08:26

The Long Island dealer at the center of an $80 million art forgery scheme that duped dozens of experts and buyers pleaded guilty on Monday to charges of wire fraud, money laundering and tax evasion.

The dealer, Glafira Rosales, is the only person who has been indicted in connection with the fraud, which passed off fake paintings as the work of Modernist masters. But she is cooperating with federal prosecutors, who have said that they expect further arrests.

What has particularly fascinated the art world is that the scores of paintings and drawings successfully presented as newly discovered works by some of the 20th century’s greatest artists were actually produced by a single man: an immigrant from China who painted out of his home and garage in Woodhaven, Queens. ~continue reading

 
Save South Bank (+london)
Thursday, 12 September 2013 09:27

There's an interesting urban development battle taking place in South Bank London as of late between developers of the Southbank Centre and the skaters who have used the space for over 35 years. The developers not only want the skaters to move, but they are willing to build the skaters "a better" skate spot a short 120 meters down the road. The skaters don't want to leave and thus a PR battle ensues.

Proposals for the centre's £120m Festival Wing complex will see the concrete undercroft beneath the Queen Elizabeth Hall, which has been a mecca for skaters since the 1970s, transformed into restaurants and shops. It is a move that sparked a vociferous campaign to protect the site for skating and BMXing, generating a 50,000-signature petition in July that has delayed the planning application. ~read on.

Developers want the skaters to move on.

And the skaters don't wanna leave.

The Bunny Statue Funeral, Friday, the 13th
Tuesday, 10 September 2013 13:26

SAN FRANCISCO --- As you may or may not have known, Jeremy Fish's bunny was stolen last week from it's perch on the corner of Haight @Laguna, but don't fret as it was recovered from the thieves in less than 24 hours by the SPBs.

The corner where the bunny rested along with numorous mural works is about to be demolished by Wood Properties, the developers of the Haight and Laguna property as they prepare for construction on the block. But in collaboration with the Haight Street Merchant and Neighbor Association, there are plans (and money has been raised) to contruct a 10 foot high bronze bunny!

Friday the 13th at 6pm, there at the corner of Haight and Laguna, there will be a funeral or sorts for the old bunny along with some people giving speaches about the 55 Laguna developments, Waller park, and the new Haight Street art center, all being built on this location. After that Jeremy Fish will read an eulogy, and thank everybody for helping to make a bronze statue in the Haight. ~complete details

He was a Bunny who loved the outdoors, and bowling, and as a surfer explored the beaches of southern California from Lahoya to Leo Carrillo. And up to Pismo. He died -- he died as so many young Bunnies of his generation, before his time.

Guerrero Gallery Moving Locations
Monday, 09 September 2013 09:15

We were sad to learn that the wonderful Guerrero Gallery will be closing their doors after their final show closes on October 1st.

They moved in and remodeled their beautiful 19th St space 3 years ago, and on Saturday, Sept 14th, they will open their last show in the space with works by Ben Venom and Lucien Shapiro... Guerrero writes in a recent emailer, "We are sad to be leaving, but excited for future endeavors. Although we will be closing the doors temporarily, we will continue to move forward with the gallery and will keep everyone informed about our plans to re-open at another location." ~continue reading

Guerrero Gallery is moving out of their current space and looking for a new location.

Mollusk Big Sur Jamboree on September 27 to 28th: Two days of music, camping and ensuing fun, set amongst the redwoods co-presented by (((folkYEAH!)))
Monday, 02 September 2013 10:41

Camp fire roaring in Big Sur with live music from Vetiver, Beachwood Sparks, McCombs Skiffle Players (a once in a lifetime Cass McCombs super group), Allah-Las, Sonny and the Sunsets, The Autumn Defense, Little Wings, Neal Casal, Chris Cohen, F.D and the Wizards of the West All Stars, Range of Light Wilderness, The Mattson 2, Sonny and the Sunsets, and many more.

Sponsored by Mollusk surf shop and the Big Sur Jamboree features two days of music, camping and ensuing fun, set amongst the redwoods co-presented by (((folkYEAH!))). Sept 27-28

Though there will be food and drink on site, Jamboree attendees are encouraged to bring their own. Been saving a vintage bottle of chardonnay from the famed Marcassin Estate in Sonoma… there couldn't be a better time to uncork it than when Beachwood Sparks hits the stage deep in the woods. Lastly, Farmer Dave has been deemed the Jamboree's "Cultural Vibesman" and will be on hand to ensure all attendees will have a wonderful time. Think of the Jamboree less as a music festival and more as summer camp for adults!

Adult summer camp goes down Sept 27-28

Jeremy Fish Opening a Solo Show in August at FFDG
Tuesday, 15 April 2014 09:33

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
Monday, 14 April 2014 10:20

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

Think how high those throw ups can be now.

Tucker Nichols emailed over this new OB shirt he did for our friends at Park Life which can purchased here for $28.

Speaking of Ocean Beach, if you know, you know, but if you don't... it's not what the average american thinks of when thinking of a California Beach (missing 14 yr. old yesterday). Can't believe we used to drunk naked swim at 3am in the dead if winter... being surfers probably helped us not dying.

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

 

Nikki McClure at Needles & Pens, Friday 4/11
Wednesday, 09 April 2014 09:42

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

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.
