New Release: David Choe Poster Series

As you probably know by now, David Choe is kind of famous. That is sort of fun for us, because we remember the Baskin Robbins’ days. We are very excited today to announce a David Choe x Upper Playground special open-edition print release, featuring 4 classic Choe works. “Bangs“, “Choebot“, “Soulscraper“, and “Swamp Virus.”

Each print is 18″ x 24″, open edition, and $9.95.

Here is how David Choe describes it:

“I realize my art has gotten quite unaffordable over the years, and those not in the print game, don’t have the time to hunt down limited editon rare hard to find whatevers, I will now have something for you! I appreciate all the love and support from all of you who care about me and my work over the years that have afforded me the luxury to create whatever I want without HAVING to suck dick in dark alleyways, now me WANTING to do that, is a whole other story. I will be making posters and prints that are open edition and affordable for all my non-billionaire friends.”

In Our Webstore: Jeremy Fish “The Golden Hills” Print

Upper Playground and Jeremy Fish have just released our 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 is currently on sale at Upper Playground’s webstore.

“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

SF Edition INSA prints now available online

Upper Playground and FIFTY24SF Gallery are releasing new San Francisco special edition prints by INSA in conjunction with his ongoing exhibition at FIFTY24SF Gallery entitled ‘MORE’.

The prints are new takes by INSA on the now classic ‘Heel’ image that began to enter his work in 2004.  In the beginning, the image was simply an attempt to depart from the traditional macho driven culture that dominated graffiti – but has since become one of the defining images of INSA’s career and has been seen on countless walls in cities across the world.

The San Francisco editions of the prints come in six neon color ways and variations, to coincide with the neon murals that INSA accomplished throughout San Francisco over the last couple weeks.  Each print is executed as two colour silkscreens made using solvent based inks on Fabriano 5 300gsm paperstock. The prints measure 20″ x 28″ and are signed, blind-stamped and numbered by INSA.  Each color is limited to an edition of 15 and priced at $150 per print. Check them all out here.

SEE THE REST

Pop Culture by Alex Pardee

It could say “I Hate Tuesday.” Or any day really. But Garfield done by Alex Pardee, nice touch. Pardee and Zerofriends have taken a bunch of the “pop-culture” subjects they have covered over the past few years, and are having a print release.

Alex says: We decided to gather some of our favorite pop-culture related art from recent years and release it all at once. It’s a little scattered throughout the online store, so take a few minutes to spelunk around the interwebs of Zerofriends and perhaps you will see something you may have missed from your childhood. I love creating pop-culture inspired art, so stay tuned, as I’m sure we will have another handful in a few months:)

Ericailcane Prints now available

All work available on the Upper Playground Online Shop

or contact gallery@fifty24sf.com for purchase or questions

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.
