Italian artists, Ericailcane (who showed at our San Francisco space in 2010) and Hitnes are set to open a new exhibition at our Mexico City space, FIFTY24MX Gallery on March 17, 2012. Here is a little preview of the works…
Jeremy Fish just put the finishing touches on his mural at the entryway to the Lower Haight mural. Being that Jeremy Fish is a San Francisco ambassador, he get the primo prime real estate spot on the wall. If you go by said murals, you will see work from Ericailcane, Doze Green, Mars-1, and David Choong Lee. And now, you will see a Silly Pink Bunny sculpture.
Correlating with the opening of Ericailcane’s “We Were Living in the Woods” show at FIFTY24SF Gallery, we’re releasing a line of low edition prints – five etchings printed by Ericailcane in his studio on found and Magnani “Havana” paper and two screen prints made by Squadro on 300 gsm Fabriano white paper – all in various sizes.
The etchings on found paper come from two different sources. Ericailcane speaks of finding the paper: “The first, is paper of an 1800’s french book ‘La Vie de la perfection’ that I found in a flea market. The book is from a monastery in France and is about teaching monks to reach the right way for illumination, the second set of prints is on paper that I found in an abandoned train factory in Italy. The paper is from 1952. The writings are about credits and debits of the train factory”
The SERVAL (14” x 22”) print was first etched on plexiglass and printed on 200 gsm 100 % cotton Magnani “Havana” paper. It comes in two versions: black and white in an edition of 23 and a hand watercolored version limited to an edition of 4. Magnani is a traditional Italian paper company which has been producing high-quality paper since 1404.
The screen prints, SCARPE VERDI and PICCIONI were made by Squadro, a renowned portuguese designer with showrooms in Sao Paolo and Belo Horizonte. The two screen prints are finished with a flocking and printed on 300 gsm Fabriano white paper – both are limited to an edition of 150.
The “We Were Living in the Woods” exhibition will run at FIFTY24SF Gallery from November 11th – December 19th, for work from the show please visit: http://www.fifty24sf-com/present. (PICTURES OF ALL THE PRINTS AFTER THE JUMP)
Ericailcane, showing in FIFTY24 right now, was invited to paint on the new Lower Haight mural. So he walked down the street and added a little touch of Jeremy Fish to his new piece. Jeremy’s piece is right around the corner from this.
If you haven’t checked out the Lower Haight mural, or what Ericailcane did on the front of the Upper Playground store, go check it out.
The paint had begun to peel, the colors fading – as with all good murals the Sam Flores piece that had hung above our SF store had run it’s course, so we handed the torch to Ericailcane to make anew. Check out the first part of him changing it out below…
