New Ericailcane prints and etchings at UpperPlayground.com

Posted from The Citrus Report

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”

AMADEO(4” x 7”) is limited to edition of 16, LA CASA DELL’ALBERO (4” x 7”) is limited to edition of 25 and PAOLO MARCHI USURAIO (8” x 12”) is limited to an edition of 25.

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 through December 19th, for work from the show please visit: http://www.fifty24sf-com/present.

SEE THE REST

Josh’s trip to Miami, 2.1 of 3

Ok so I got cut off in that last post because I am stealing internet from one of my neighbors and when you do that you cant predict a lot of things, like getting cut off from the www and stuff like that.  As I was saying, people move to Florida to die and live in this 50′s movie about paradise and beach views blah, blah, blah. Back to my point that Florida is no paradise. There are a shit load of cars and it is so humid you can’t breath here. There are a lot of people on walkers and Italian tourists who have style but in a very corny way.

So like in the last post these here are some pictures of the social structure of old people in Florida. It is basically like High School, all the cliques sit at their own lunch tables talking crap about people at other tables and exchanging glances. Of course there are the cooler ones and each table has a leader.

I believe they call this the Atlantic Ocean.

Is Florida not pretty?  Yea I wanna go here to die, or not!

Actually I would like Florida to get destroyed by a natural disaster, and then I would like to go live here. It would be like Battle Ship Island 300 miles off the coast of Japan, which is basically an entier city on an island that is totaly abandoned and falling apart. Maybe I wont need a natural disaster to have Florida be like that. The economy and all the buildings they built just get emptier and emptier every time I go there. And the climate there fucks shit up real good and real fast so maybe it will happen naturally.

All this old people and depressing crap wearing on my mom and I so in the next post we will escape to South Beach.

To be continued……..

Erica Il Cane’s “We Were Living In the Woods” @ FIFTY24SF Gallery

Posted from The Citrus Report

We can’t wait for this one. Erica Il Cane, the great Italian muralist, street artist, and fine artist, is coming to San Francisco to show at FIFTY24SF Gallery on November 11th. Even the name of the show, We Were Living In the Woods, sounds pretty cool.

A little bit from the press release: “As a major contributor to an increasingly progressive and elaborate street art and mural movement occurring in Europe over the past 5 years, Erica il Cane (translating to “Eric the Dog”) gained international recognition for his anthropomorphic  building-sized animal murals throughout Italy and the continent. With fellow contemporaries Blu, Sam3, Escif, and San, Erica’s large-scale murals have been viewed as fine art done within the public’s view. We Were Living in the Woods will feature works on paper and on-site installations.”

November 11th – December 30th, with an opening reception on Thursday, November 11th, from 7:30PM – 10:00PM

Erica Il Cane at FIFTY24SF Gallery, November 11th

FIFTY24SF Gallery is pleased to present a solo exhibition by Italian street muralist and fine artist, Erica il Cane, entitled, We Were Living in the Woods. The exhibition will be the second solo show that Erica has held in the United States.

As a major contributor to an increasingly progressive and elaborate street art and mural movement occurring in Europe over the past 5 years, Erica il Cane (translating to “Eric the Dog”) gained international recognition for his anthropomorphic  building-sized animal murals throughout Italy and the continent. With fellow contemporaries Blu, Sam3, Escif, and San, Erica’s large-scale murals have been viewed as fine art done within the public’s view. We Were Living in the Woods will feature works on paper and on-site installations.

Born and studied in Bologna, Italy, Erica’s evolution to gallery work has seen depictions of animals in unique, human situations rendered in Victorian-like style illustrations, etchings, and short animated films. The art is often described as imagery from a dark fairy tale, in which animals are shown within the darkness of human nature, focusing on themes of alienation, satire, existentialism. Both gallery and mural work has also been hailed as influential works advocating vegetarianism and animal rights.

Erica il Cane has shown throughout Europe, including Lazarides Gallery, Banksy’s Santa’s Ghetto, the Fame Festival, and gallery shows in Milan, Rome, London, and Barcelona. He has also shown in Los Angeles and Chicago. 

 Erica Il Cane’s “We Were Living in the Woods” will run from November 11th – December 30th, with an opening reception on Thursday, November 11th, from 7:30PM – 10:00PM. (Pictures of some of the work below)
