21 Jeremy Fish x Upper Playground The Golden Hills Print Upper Playground print jeremy fish

Next week, Upper Playground and Jeremy Fish will be releasing a new print, “The Golden Hills,” as an opening message to Fish’s exhibition at FIFTY24SF this summer. The print is made in an edition of 100, signed and numbered the artist, and printed at the fantastic Bloom Press in Oakland, California.

The print will be on sale at Upper Playground’s webstore on Monday, May 21, 2012.

“This drawing was inspired by that looming feeling that San Francisco is an isolated island from the rest of the country. As SF becomes more and more expensive, and the lower income creative folks that make this city pulse get squeezed off the island, “the city that knows how” will slowly transform into a sterile west coast Manhattan full of tech chads and internet gurus.” —Jeremy Fish

Jeremy Fish x Upper Playground “Listen and Learn” App

ListenAndLearn Jeremy Fish x Upper Playground Listen and Learn App listen and learn jeremy fish app

Jeremy Fish and Upper Playground have teamed up to create a new app to bring Fish’s groundbreaking “Listen and Learn” exhibition to your iPad and iPhone.

This past summer at Joshua Liner Gallery in NYC, Jeremy Fish created an interactive exhibition, Listen and Learn,  featuring 30 paintings based on stories told my some of Fish’s closest friends and inspirational talents. Each painting was accompanied with headphones to allow visitors to listen to the audio recordings while viewing Jeremy’s visual interpretation of the story on the wall. Fish gathered Snoop Dogg, Aesop Rock, Mike Giant, Lance Mountain, El-P, Ron English, Ricky Powell, and many others to get some of their most inspiring stories on record.

As not all of Fish’s closest fans made it out to the exhibition, we have collaborated on the “Listen and Learn” app, bringing the interactive experience to your iPad and iPhone and bring new life to Fish’s “story paintings” and most experimental gallery show to date. The app comes bundled with 30 images of Fish’s paintings and 1.5 hours of audio stories that accompanied and inspired each piece. The “Listen and Learn” app also comes with a handful of videos and gallery of images from Fish’s exhibition.

Pick up the APP here.

Jeremy Fish x Snoop Dogg for Joshua Liner Gallery on June 21, 2011

Jeremy Fish has a solo show opening up at Josh Liner in NYC, and the show has some really interesting audio work, including this piece with Snoop Dogg.

As you know, Upper Playground has been working on some various projects with Snoop Dogg, and we are longtime collaborators with Mr. Jeremy Fish. Nice to see them getting along.

“The exhibition features assorted tales from a wide swath of contemporary life—including from artists, skateboarders, rappers, athletes, a stripper, a cop, and a historian—which Fish has reinterpreted in lovingly realized painted works.

For this impressive project, Fish gathered a selection of friends and acquaintances whose rich lives have engendered no end of interesting tales. Most prominent among them is rapper/producer/actor Snoop Dogg, who recounts a story from childhood. In the tale, Snoop is among a select group of neighborhood kids to be bussed to a brand new, highly touted elementary school. Right off, Snoop gets into trouble when he allegedly exposes himself to a female student in the lunch line. The rapper’s account of the principal’s reprimand displays his undisputed gift for storytelling and turning naughty content into witty word games with a humorous twist. In ‘Pulled Out My Worm’, Fish’s painted rendition of the tale, these story elements are incorporated into a baroque-style mirror image of two dog silhouettes, adorned with scrolling filigree, cartoon characters from an American childhood, and neighborhood identifiers.”
