Mario Martinez Mural
    Thursday, 02 August 2012 /// Written by Trippe

Love the giant Mario Martinez (Mars-1) we spotted yesterday evening while walking by the Phoenix Hotel in the Tenderloin. How the heck did we miss this, which we suspected was created for the art fairs this past spring? Probably because we didn't make any of the fairs this past year (hectic year last year).

Great work, Mario. Our only question is, was it painted or is it some sort of billboard/ banner? Guess we'll have to email Mario to find out.

Update: Yep, Mario did paint the mural. See the bottom photo by Colin Day. Check Mars-1.com for more pics.

Graffiti Legend SEEN
    Thursday, 14 July 2011 /// Written by Trippe

NYC graffiti legend SEEN just made our week as he and Mars-1 just stopped by FFDG to check out Shawn Barber's show Youth of Today. The guy practically invented graffiti in the 70s. Yikes.

Mars-1 Blacklight Velvet Print
    Wednesday, 23 March 2011 /// Written by Van Edwards

Electric Works here in SF releases this great blacklight Mars-1 print.


This limited edition poster brings back the best of underground poster-making from 1970s. The rich velvety black is just that: virtually the whole print is covered in black flocking. Underneath that is a layer of UV-reactive fluorescent day-glo inks. Each print is signed by MARS-1. Tack it up in your dorm room, frame it for your study—this print is guaranteed to elevate the look of any wall it's hung on.

Each 32" x 25" poster is signed by the artist and due to the hand printing of the silkscreen each one varies just a little from the other making every one unique.

This is a limited-edition signed and numbered blacklight poster. The color background was applied with a process called "Split Fountain" in which all 5 colors are put on the screen and mixed into the gradient in one pull as the squeegee goes across the screen. Each pull mixes the inks a little differently so each print is unique. The fluorescent inks are UV reactive so the poster has one look in the daylight and totally different colors under blacklight.

 

Lower Haight Murals
    Tuesday, 09 November 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Caught wind of some murals going up just a couple blocks from Fecal Face. Jeremy Fish, Mars-1, Doze Green, NOME, PNUT, Hugh Leeman, Romanowski, and others are in the middle of creating as each burst of rain shuts down production.

Jeremy Fish left & Ursula Xanthe Young (right)

Doze Green and NOME working on his section.

Our understanding is that someone in charge of the property contacted Lower Haters about getting some artists together to cover these walls since it doesn't look like the building will be rented anytime soon. Let's beautify the neighborhood.

Next time you're heading up Haight St and at the intersection of Haight and Laguna, look around. Can't miss them. !~check all the photos.

Jeremy Fish working... Mentioned something about a large sculpture. Be on the look out.

Mars-1 10yr. Show Preview
    Friday, 27 August 2010 /// Written by Trippe

This is probably premature, but got so excited after having a look at a piece in progress from Mars-1 that's going to be in Fecal Face's 10 Year Anniversary show opening up on Friday, September 10th @The Luggage Store (6-8pm) w/ an after party @Mezzanine (9-2am).

It's nutty and the final work will go on display in just 2 weeks... If you've seen Mars work in person you know how much detail goes into each work. This one is like 4 times his normal size. Wowza.

 

David Choong Lee & Burning Man
    Wednesday, 18 August 2010 /// Written by Trippe

Speaking of David Choong Lee, he just stopped in Fecal Face to pick up some work. mentioned something about Burning Man, Damon Soule, Mars-1, Oliver Vernon, and him. Something about a huge outdoor live painting jam. Sounds interesting and dusty. If you're a burning person, you may want to keep your eyes open.

Also Future Colors of America ended on Saturday at Fecal Face Dot Gallery. FFDG will be closed through Fecal Face's 10 yr show on Sept 10th... A lot of people coming by today to view blank walls. Just took the work down. Sorry.
