About Jay Howell
"Artist Jay Howell has been a strong presence in the Bay Area for the past few years (now living and working in Los Angeles), sharpening his cartoon-style drawings of skinny guys with erections, naked chicks on skateboards, dogs, beer, rockers, and endless good times. His art manages to be whimsical and crude at the same time, but above all damn right funny. His zine Punks Git Cut, and animated series called "The Forest City Rockers,” have deservingly earned him a devoted following. While “Forest City Rockers” seemed like the apex in punk rock cartoons, he’s taken things even further by developing the characters for Fox’s latest Sunday night animated sitcom, "Bob’s Burgers.” Produced by Loren Bouchard, best known for creating Comedy Central's "Dr. Katz Professional Therapist" and Adult Swim’s "Home Movies," "Bob’s Burgers’ about a family that runs a fumbling burger joint. Howell’s style and humor are a perfect match for the team, earning him a well deserved place alongside animation greats. Howell is currently in production developing a show for Nickelodeon." -Justine Sharrock, 2011

About Mark Whalen (Kill Pixie)
From his beginnings in Sydney, Australia, Mark Whalen has evolved into an artist whose meticulously crafted paintings and sculptures examine the human experience by exploring communication, emotion, sexuality, invention, interaction, and ritual - all with an undercurrent of quiet absurdity. Whalen’s line precision and glowing color palette is enhanced by the introduction of colors of light, caution and arousal, making the interaction of his subjects more accentuated and accessible. Thick, seductive layers of clear glossy resin create a post-modern plane for the artist to explore spatial possibilities and relativity within the narrative.

Whalen has evolved into an artist whose meticulously executed paintings now have a prominent place in galleries around the world. He was also included in 2009's Apocalypse Wow! Exhibition at MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, Italy, and 2010's SPACE INVADERS Exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia. His work has also appeared in publications such as Juxtapoz, Modart Europe, Lodown, Arkitip, Art Ltd., Anthem, and Monster Children. He currently lives and paints in Los Angeles California.

F.C.A. Friday @FFDG
    Tuesday, 17 January 2012 /// 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.

Fire-Damaged Haight Gallery Finds Mission Home <-- Mission Local does a feature story on our move to the Mission. See you tonight, Friday, for the grand opening.

More than three months after a fire forced FFDG Gallery owner John Trippe out of the Haight, he's opening a new space at 2277 Mission St., near 19th... "We found this place on Craigslist and on December 8 it was ours," Trippe said of the 700-square-foot gallery where works from several Brazilian artists will hang on the walls for tonight's opening.

"I've wanted to have a gallery on Mission for a long time [because of] its energy, respect for art — and I love the burritos from Cancun, which is right across the street. You can’t beat that." ~read on

MCD LAB#3: Fake Sunset
Opening Fri, Jan 6th (6-9pm)
@FFDG
2277 Mission St @19th

FFDG is pleased to open the co-curated silk screen print show "MCD LAB#3: Fake Sunset" at its new location in the Mission district (2277 Mission St @19th) on Friday, January 6th (6-9pm).


3 color silk screen by Jeremy Fish

During the summer of 2011 FFDG was asked to select three San Francisco based artists and bring them to Sao Paulo, Brazil to participate in the third edition of the MCD LAB shows co-curated by Brazil's NOZ.ART (Ana Ferraz, Lucas Ribeiro Pexao and Tristan Rault). Featuring hand pulled three color silk screen prints, the show opened on July 25, 2011 at Sao Paulo's LOGO Gallery and featured prints from Jeremy Fish (USA), Matt Furie (USA), Aiyana Udesen (USA), Sesper (Brazil/SP), Lucas Cabu (Brazil/SP), Fabio Bitao (Brazil/SP), Talita Hoffmann (Brazil/Porto Alegre), Anthony Nathan (Brazil/Curitiba), Lucas Torres (Brazil/Belo Horizonte), and Alberto Monteiro (Brazil/Rio de Janeiro).

After traveling throughout Brazil during this past Fall, FFDG will host the only US stop for the exhibition on display for 2 weeks with an opening reception Friday, January 6th (6-9pm). San Francisco based artists Jeremy Fish, Matt Furie, Aiyana Udesen along with Brazilian artists and curators Lucas Torres, Ana Ferraz, Lucas Ribeiro Pexao and Tristan Rault will be present. All 10 prints will be for sale framed and unframed. Tecates shall be served.

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).

We can finally shut up about FFDG's fire, about FFDG's temp space, about all the transitions, because we signed a 2 year lease on a new space in the heart of the Mission District last night!

FFDG is now at 2277 Mission St, San Francisco, CA. 94110

Our first show is the American version of the MCD print show featuring prints by Jeremy Fish, Matt Furie, Aiyana Udesen and others we had in Sao Paulo, Brazil back in July of this year (pics) opening up on Friday, January 6th (6-9pm). More details on that show very soon.

With a little TLC she's going to look like a gallery.

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

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.

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


Tyler Bewley ~ Recent Works

Some great work from San Francisco based Tyler Bewley.


Kirk Maxson and Alexis Mackenzie at Eleanor Harwood Gallery

Stop in Saturday (1-6pm) to view the group show "Salt the Skies" now running through April 19th. 2277 Mission St. at 19th.


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.
