Pose MSK in the heart of New York City
    Thursday, 06 March 2014 /// Written by Trippe

The L.I.S.A. Project NYC invites Pose MSK to paint a mural in Little Italy on the eve of his show at the VOLTA art fair.
This week Pose MSK, who is visiting New York City from Chicago to take part in the VOLTA art fair with Jonathan Levine Gallery, painted a mural in Little Italy with The L.I.S.A. Project NYC. Pose's work combines elements of signpainting, advertising, comic books and graffiti into collage-like pop-art compositions. The mural is located at 188 Lafayette, at the corner of Lafayette and Broome, and is the only mural Pose has running right now in Manhattan, although many New Yorkers may already be familiar with Pose's work since he painted at Houston and Bowery alongside Revok last year. -CONTINUE READING

Jeff Depner at NYC's Nancy Margolis
    Friday, 15 November 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Vancouver based painter Jeff Depner ('12 interview) is currently showing new paintings in VARIATIONS BLACK NAPKINS at NYC's Nancy Margolis Gallery through Dec 7th. -PHOTOS

The work ebbs and flows between graphic qualities and thick painterly styles with muted but contemporary feeling colors. The constant process of ‘improvised moves' allows some of the work to be based in grid like structures. It allows some of the smaller paintings a chance for inquiry in constructive qualities and aspects of painting, inserting his work into the long history of painting. -our '12 interview

In his abstract acrylic paintings, Vancouver-based Depner explores compositional structure through the relationship between colors. His works’ painted layers create singular, functioning systems of interacting parts, yet juxtapositions permeate—between the architectonic and the organic, the graphic and the painterly, the matte and the opulent.

ICY Signs + Stephen Powers
ICY Signs - Perfection is Standard, Mistakes Cost Extra
October 24 to November 16, 2013
@Joshua Liner, NYC
I moved home to the Bay Area about 4 years ago and recently had the opportunity to visit New York City for the first time since. Having missed Barry McGee & Raymond Pettibon by a day, I felt lucky to have an old friend clue me into the ICY Signs show when I arrived. PHOTOS

Over the last decade, Steven Powers has proven his talent, wit and superior work ethic many times over. Beyond getting to study his work up close, it was neat to see the talent of all the other sign painters and collaborators he keeps company with. Had I known John would be posting these shit photos I would have documented their work a bit more properly. Take a minute to visit the gallery's selected work pages to see for yourself. - Adam C.

Banksy NYC, Over 'N Out
    Friday, 01 November 2013 /// Written by Trippe

Well, Banksy's month long experiment with the city of NYC is all but wrapped up... Gotta say that the "Spray Art" booth was his best. That guy from Chicago who bought 4 including the iconic flower molotov piece is sitting pretty. Lovely ~ banksyny.com

Banky's "Spray Art" ~~~ $60 each

In an audio guide accompanying the work (available on Banksy's website), the narrator says Banksy said of his month-long endeavor: "If just one child has been inspired to pick up a can of paint and make some art, that would be statistically disappointing considering how much work I put in."

He also said that if there was one cohesive message from the show, it's that "Outside is where art should live, among us," and that "rather than street art being a fad, maybe the last 1,000 years of art history are a blip, when art came inside in the service of the church and institutions." ~read on

Recent Works by David Lyle
    Tuesday, 23 April 2013 /// Written by Trippe

NYC based David Lyle emailed over some recent works as he prepares for his upcoming shows in both NYC and Paris. Check out some of his previous works.

Working from found photographs, Lyle's paintings are created through a reductive painting process where each piece is rendered using only black paint and turpentine. Lyle begins this process by priming a panel with white gesso. He then paints a thin, rich, oily black veneer over the primed panel, slowly and systematically developing his images by removing some of the black paint with a cloth. In doing so, Lyle renders layer upon layer of various values of black paint resulting in his signature-style of luminescent works.

Mark Mulroney lives and works in Syracuse, NY and has shown here in San Francisco at Park Life, Ever Gold and FFDG. His current and 5th show at Mixed Greens in NYC began with the simple vision of a man stranded on a desert island with a palm tree, two coconuts, and maybe a girl. Vintage Playboys and the idea that Tarzan was an asshole.

Huey Crowley - Recent Paintings
    Friday, 21 December 2012 /// Written by Van Edwards

NYC based painter Huey Crowley, who was in our group show 11.11.11 last year, emailed over some new paintings based on reinterpreted children's fairy tales his grandmother read to him as a child.

Huey writes I chose to reinterpret these stories through my own narrative, and I chose excerpts from my own life to explore them. For example, in the painting "Toad I miss U" I am painting what I think it would be like if someone never listened to these stories or had a role model in their life... what their life would be like if they never had an adult around to read to them, or to care for them. The painting depicts an empty subway, with a homeless person's makeshift home inside. Surrounding the home are messages calling out to find Frog and Toad. The absence of role models can leave one’s life empty.

Dave Kinsey Thurs in NYC
    Tuesday, 11 December 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Dave Kinsey
Everything at Once
December 13, 2012 to January 13, 2013
@Joshua Liner, NYC
We have a sneak peek of Dave Kinsey's solo show that's opening this Thursday, Dec 13th in NYC at Joshua Liner. Dave's last solo show was here in San Francisco @FFDG last May.

As the show title suggests, Kinsey attempts to convey a world gone mad with media, perpetual conflict, and a sense of the mounting struggle between the urban and natural worlds. Kinsey creates this new body of work through a brash synthesis of materials, textures, and aesthetics, conjuring multilayered abstractions with traces of figuration which create dynamic transformations of images within images.

FILLING THE VOID

Some of Tod Seelie's post Sandy coverage from a couple weeks ago. Did you happen to view his first post or Bryan Derballa's photo blog?

So sad also about the galleries in Chelsea that had extensive water damage. We asked a friend recently about the situation and commented how lucky that the galleries are insured and will cover their losses when he responded, "they don't have flood insurance. Insurance won't cover a thing." Ugh... Well, we hope they all get back on their feet quickly. Here's a somewhat recent news video story here.

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.

Sculpture of Jesus as homeless and sleeping on a park bench is "freaking out" the neighbors of this wealthy NC suburb.

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

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

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.
