Here's a little short I (John Trippe) did on artist/ designer Michael Leon back in 2003 for Element skateboards. Michael Leon at the time did Commonwealth Stacks clothing and designed a set of boards for Element. He previously was a designer at Girl Skateboards.

 

Ernest Zacharevic in Malaysia

Thursday, 16 January 2014 13:06
Written by Henrik Haven

I am now in Penang, Malaysia where I have have enjoyed a very interesting and busy week in the beautiful surroundings here.

I've had the pleasure to follow Ernest Zacharevic since friday while he created some of the new paintings, murals and installations for his first solo show ever, which will open on Friday January 17th here in Penang, Malaysia.

I have also included shots of his visit to the local wood carver/sign maker (since a sign above the door of a new opened store is good luck) where he picked up a sign with one of his "childish horses" which is going to be on display at the show (it's Chinese New year here and it will be the year of the horse - again for good luck), a visit to a legendary stamp maker who carved Ernest's signature in marble in the traditional Chinese way which will be added on the hand finished prints that goes along with the show and finally shots from a local Indian store that usually produce ornament for parades etc. but in this case made 2 Lego sculptures in large scale for the show (similar to the ones he made on a mural just recently that caused quite a stir and controversy in the area here).

Alex Lukas at Breeze Block Gallery, Portland

Thursday, 16 January 2014 10:22
Written by Trippe

PORTLAND --- Chicago based Alex Lukas is now showing new work in the show Prints & Photographs; Copies & Concrete (PHOTOS) at Breeze Block Gallery. Alex has shown with Guerrero Gallery here in SF a couple times and we've featured his work many times... like HERE HERE and HERE.

His last show with Richard Coleman was beautiful.

Alex Lukas in front of his works.

In addition to his painting and drawing practice, Lukas is self-taught printmaker with a background in ‘zine publishing and non-traditional use of print media. For this exhibition he will present several new editions, a new artists’ book, diazotypes, sculptures, offset lithographs and unique works based in printmaking as parts of an ambitious installation at the gallery. Eschewing the concept of using print merely as a means of reproducing an already existing image, all of the work presented here is unique to it’s medium.

Alex Lukas’ highly detailed works on paper and intricate artists’ books examine a possible future of destruction and violence, coupled with rebirth and a quiet sense of optimism, alongside an examination of the contemporary landscape. 


 

Beth Van Hoesen @The George Krevsky Gallery

Wednesday, 15 January 2014 14:47
Written by Rachel Ralph

SAN FRANCISCO --- The George Krevsky Gallery opened Beth Van Hoesen: Portraits from the Castro last Thursday night at their downtown gallery and it was truly a local event.

Housed in the 77 Geary St. building on the second floor, not many tourists stopped in, but there was a crowd of locals who gathered to enjoy the works. Each piece was donated by the Beth Van Hoesen trust to help raise funds for a new public monument in San Francisco, the Rainbow Honor Walk. The works were created during a 22-year period in which Hoesen lived on 22nd at the top of the Castro, in which she documented her neighbors, including many members of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence.

The highly stylistic and flattened, yet realistic and detailed paintings highlight the intimate relationships fostered in this colorful neighborhood and are definitely worth a look before the show closes at the end of February.

Yet More Art Theft

Monday, 13 January 2014 14:10
Written by Trippe

Ouch, these guys are complete thieves having stole Tiffany Bozic's Strigiformes artwork for their clothing line. Bozic emailed this morning with the disturbing news:

From Tiffany Bozic: "Check out this lame-ass company who blatantly ripped off the Strigiformes painting, trying to sell it on ugly sweatshirts. I posted an alert on my Tumblr blog about it.

I'm sick of this happening, and I feel like it would help IMMENSELY to get some more exposure out there on the subject to help put an end to this. I can imagine this is happening to a ton of other emerging artists as well, not just me."

Has this happened to you? We've seen other large companies in the past plunder artists' works... Any lawyers out there know the legality of this? Is this a case of cease and desist?

Even though it's a rad sweater, Tiffany Bozic did NOT license her artwork for this.

She did license her beautiful image to FFDG for this print though.

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.
