Brian Barneclo's 225' Food Chain Mural

Friday, 07 March 2014 12:46
Written by Trippe

San Francisco based Brian Barneclo was commissioned in 2006 to paint a HUGE mural on the side of "Foods Co" on Shotwell at 14th Streets (PHOTOS). Through the years it got pretty taxed by misc graffiti and pigeon shit.

Barneclo and assistant David Benzler were asked to clean it up and under a week's time they completed this great 225 foot food chain themed mural.

The original involved MASSIVE mural (note the cars) completed in 2006 by Brian Barneclo.

A short documentary following the late artist, Shawn Whisenant

Thursday, 06 March 2014 12:27
Written by Trippe

Shawn Whisenant is a born and raised San Francisco Bay Area artist whose art can be found lurking in the streets or galleries and museums across the USA, Australia, and Europe. He has been working on the streets of the Bay Area since the mid 1990's, where his images continue to endure on walls, mailboxes, and other surfaces around the city. He enjoys making books and stickers, taking photos, painting signs, and moving about in the city’s shadows. In the streets and galleries, his work has seen many different forms. From rare-hand crafted books, to skateboard films and a signature pair of Osiris shoes, his creating doesn’t end with painting. RIP Shawn Whisenant.

John Felix Arnold @BRIC House, Brooklyn

Thursday, 06 March 2014 11:54
Written by Trippe

Our friend John Felix Arnold III is at it again, making artwork in the service of music, but this time on the east coast in downtown Brooklyn at BRIC House (PHOTOS).

In the year or so that I've known Felix, almost every one of his shows has had a live musical element and it seems perfect that he would be included in a show called Art Into Music. He commandeered the corner of the gallery to create an installation that houses not only his drawing, but also an entire drum kit, amps and a dude playing a guitar. The warm wood paneling stands out in contrast to the matte grey boom-box tower and the muted wall of album covers and looks like a beacon calling to the crowd saying "this is what you shoud be looking at." However, it's not in a "look at me" attention-starved desperation, more like a welcoming invitation into his world.

I wish I could have seen the opening in person, but keep your eyes peeled as we cover Felix's cross-country roadtrip culminating in his upcoming solo show at Superchief Gallery again in NY opening April 3rd. His solo show at FFDG opens Oct 2014. -Rachel Ralph (rachel(at)fecalface.com)

'W.O.W. (What Once Was)'
Works by Max Rippon
February 22nd - March 22nd
AF Gallery. Lichtstrasse 26-28, Cologne, Germany
Our friend Max Rippon (aka RIPO) is currently showing these wonderful wood and canvas works focused on his love of type through the lens of the fundamental transience of modern life that we're all setting goals for upgrades (PHOTOS).

"The basic fact of modern life... 'All that is solid melts into air.'" - Marshall Berman

We cannot stop. We must move forward. Growth. Expansion. Progress. Evolution. We don't yearn for less friends, a smaller house, a smaller bank account, less notoriety. The goals we set are for streamlining our upgrades, building on and in turn making obsolete what it was we craved and loved only yesterday.

FFDG will open a group show on March 21st featuring works by Mark Mulroney amoung others (details shortly). Mulroney will be featured in this weekend's NYC Volta art fair running 3/6- 3/9 through Mixed Greens Gallery.

VOLTA NY is an invitational show of emerging solo artists' projects and the American incarnation of the successful young fair founded in Basel in 2005. VOLTA NY was conceived in 2008 by Artistic Director Amanda Coulson as a tightly-focused, boutique event that is a place for discovery, a showcase for relevant art contemporary positions regardless of the artist's or gallery's age.

Mark Mulroney
loves his wife and is working earnestly on becoming a better golfer. He lives in the forest and chops wood when it is needed. He occasionally throws walnuts at squirrels but is pretty sure they don't mind.

Wonderful illustration by NYC based Gina Martynova who emailed over a few samples of her works. My work is an exploration of nature's fundamental paradox and it's role in folklore, fashion and art.

We're sad to have learned this morning that local artist Shawn Whisenant passed away this past weekend from, what it sounds like, a long term illness. Shawn has contributed to Photo of the Day over the years and was actually randomly featured for this past Saturday's Photo of the Day.

Be sure to scroll through his photos on his site, and we'd like to sincerely pass our condolences to his friends and family... Thanks, Shawn, for contributing to San Francisco's visual stimuli. ---> Pass your good vibes on Shawn's Facebook page.

Below are a few photos he submitted to Fecal Face's Photo of the Day with his words.

Stupids in Lisbon, Portugal

Thursday, 27 February 2014 09:00
Written by Trippe

Inspired by the world known Portuguese poet Fernando Pessoa and its sentence “We are avatars of past stupidity”, “Estúpidos – Porque todas as pessoas o são!” (“Stupids – Because all people are!”) is an art project by the artist “Panda do Transe”. It consists in a circuit of installations that is invading Lisbon streets, squares and other city public spaces. Until the end of January, Panda do Transe planned to install a total of 10 sculptures, which will show up at unpredictable places, as if they were a friendly but also ironic alien invasion.

“Stupids” project aims to stir up consciousness by promoting a satirical and artistic rebellion against cultural apathy and towards a sustainable gentrification, a city more affordable and open to artists, alternative forms of creation and expression.



Each figure story is completed by public interaction, the amusing installations challenges original selfies, suspicious hugs or just smiles from people passing by. They are exhibit for as long as the pieces are kept in place (the first one installed in a well known Lisbon belvedere disappeared before New Year ’s Eve) or until “stupidity” is proclaimed a illicit form of public space occupation.
