We've been posting interviews with artists in the FECAL FACE DOT COM 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY SHOW -- Opening Friday September 10th @The Luggage Store Gallery (6-8pm) with After party @Mezzanine (9-2am) featuring live musical performances by Kelley Stoltz, Sonny Smith, and Ty Segall - w/DJ Ted Shred.

NYC based Maya Hayuk has been a friend of Fecal Face for many years- so long in fact, that don't even remember when and how we met, we're just glad we did and that she was available to be included in the show. Maya shows her work across the globe and does many commissions featuring her mural work. For the 10 Yr. Show, Maya will have a site specific mural on the walls at The Luggage Store. She starts work on it today, actually. Excited as we've never seen her work on a mural in person.


What were you up to in the year 2000?

I lived with Kyle Ranson, John Dwyer, Molly Harvey & Gary Wertz (not all at once, but throughout that year) at Lake Sleepytown on Sanchez st. between 16th & market in a building infested with raccoons and the world's meanest slumlord and cheapest rent ever. I was painting, quietly, in the pantry of my kitchen not really sharing my work in public much/ at all. I was photographing lots and lots of bands & printing at In Color II. A bunch of my friends and I started a skate-surf-snowboarding website/ magazine called withitgirl, which I art-directed, so I was learning to stand on moving boards, and learning photoshop & html. I worked the door on Wednesdays at Minna, and I spent most of my time down in the warehouses on Illinois street.


How has your work changed in the last 10 years?

I hope it's gotten better. it's become harder and easier to make. I understand my direction more and it's gotten way larger in scale, but I still feel like I am at the very beginning of learning a lot, lot more.


What did you think 2010 would be like back then?

Futuristic & remote-controlled & everyone on segways.


When you first heard of Fecal Face what did you think about it?

That it was a childishly named, super-awesome web magazine. (what? I'm serious)


How has Fecal Face Dot Com been a part of your life and/or career?

Big-time! not only have I discovered shit tons of amaaazing artists, people have found me, leading to countless numbers of shows and projects. I'd say it's been more impactful on my career than any other site, hands down. thank you, Fecal Face!


Hear any good music lately?

yes!


You making the opening at The Luggage Store on Friday September 10th? Love to see you.

Super yes! And I'm stoked to see you and to see Kyle Ranson & Dan Higgs' show at Needles and Pens the night before and then Chris Duncan the night after. Plus, I get to see my sweet family, so I'm freaking crazy excited to be out there!


What are you working on now and have coming down the line?

we are having our annual Monster Island Block Party, with like 18 bands playing outside on the street on September 4th, so I'm all about super-sprucing-up the outside of the building with some fresh paint. Inside of Secret Project Robot on the ground floor we are making this show called "Main Street Monster Island", where a bunch of us are creating this kind of utopic town with all these different structures, like a head shop called "Inspirations" by sto & eli from Cinders/ dub know dub, a comic book shop by Chris Uphues, a gazebo stage, a hair salon by Vashti from Golden Triangle, etc etc. I am making a planetarium-observatory thing where you stand on a pile of old clothes and look up into this mirrored, black-lit sculpture called "God's Observatory and Thrift" & air-brushed tie dyed tee shirts for the head shop.

Last friday night I played a show across the street at Pete's Candy Store with 3 Treasures, which is my sweetheart, Andrew Deutsch, and 4 other women singing these really beautiful summer camp fire sing-alongs. Tonight I'm making a vegan Brazilian black bean stew with sweet potatoes, mango & cilantro, which I'll serve tomorrow night before the show at our house when we practice.

And then on november 6th i'll be opening my solo show at Cinders called "Heavy Light", which I am pretty excited for.

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.
