Russell Westbrook officially the freshest dude on the planet

russell westbrook shirt 605x449 Russell Westbrook officially the freshest dude on the planet Russell Westbrook fresh

We didn’t want to jinx the Thunder and post about Westbrook’s status as early 20s fashion icon, but damn, red frames, fish shirt, red pants, paint splattered chambray? This dude is so on point. Thom Yorke wears red pants, Russell Westbrook wears red pants, Raymond Brown will now wear red pants.

Sri Lanka

IMG 4224 605x605 Sri Lanka sri lanka Photography

Here are a group of photos that we took on a recent trip to Sri Lanka, where we saw things like evil monkeys, baby elephants, a wedding ceremony, “Let It Be” played by a band from Kandy, an evacuation, a tea country, a golf course with no players, the Buddha’s tooth relic, the largest brick structure in the world, the oldest living planted tree, beautiful sunsets, a full moon, and a rain storm so heavy you couldn’t see two inches in front of you. Through 3 buses, plenty of Carlsberg, extreme heat, and a nighttime view of the Indian Ocean, here is a little insight into one of the most beautiful countries you will ever see… —Raymond Brown/The Citrus Report

A few weeks ago, we dropped in on Alex Pardee and his team as they were painting the offices of Urban Air in SOMA/San Francisco. We snapped a few photos, caught up with the man, and tried not to get black paint on our shoes. Thank you to Urban Air for letting us sit on their couch and vent. —Raymond Brown/The Citrus Report

Why Grantland is a great site, they write extensively about Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels

pg2 g smichts 576 Why Grantland is a great site, they write extensively about Bret Hart vs. Shawn Michaels wwf shawn michaels grantland bret hart

We aren’t trying to say that knowing about late 80′s, early 90′s WWF personalities is the key to a friendship with Raymond Brown, but if we say Big Boss Man and you don’t know what we are talking about, its sort of hard to continue. Bushwackers? We can pretty much assume that you know Bret “The Hitman” Hart and Shawn Michaels, forever rivals. Grantland has an excellent piece on the men that we think you will enjoy. It feels like what a 10-year would like to read.

This past Monday night, Green Apple Books in San Francisco held a taco and beer party in honor of the release of Haruki Murakami’s new opus, 1Q84. The Citrus Report decided to head out, pre-order our book, and sit for a few hours in the Socialism section with a few Sapporo cans to discuss world issues. And, of course, the 1Q84. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report

Richard Serra @ San Francisco Museum of Modern Art

IMG 2759 Richard Serra @ San Francisco Museum of Modern Art sfmoma san francisco museum of modern art richard serra retrospective raymond brown

We do feel it rare to be able to see a traveling exhibition at two consecutive venues. This past summer, we visited Richard Serra’s Drawing at the MET in NYC, but the buzz in the building had been for the Alexander McQueen exhibition, which was gaining momentum and a labyrinth of lines throughout the building. Our experience with Serra was quiet, but dramatic. The work, of course, was strong, and in its simple construction and arrangement, had a unique language all to its own. But we felt it wasn’t given the proper space to breath.

The move to the SFMoMA proves to be the right conditions for which to see Serra’s work. The natural light, the higher ceilings, and bigger rooms allow for Serra’s drawings and sculptures to exist as they should. We always imagined Serra’s sculptures existing in old industrial warehouses, in large, open spaces that put scale and materials in focus. His drawings, some sketches, some full thoughts, some just examinations of the human’s ability to connect with shapes, angles, and simple construction need their own rooms to thrive.

If you have a chance to stop by Serra’s retrospective, we recommend going in the afternoon during the week, with few people interrupting the experience. Its solitary, and its own universe. Just enjoy it. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report

Teen Witch

Screen shot 2011 10 09 at 5.25.31 PM Teen Witch

San Francisco-based photographer Teen Witch has never had a solo show at a proper gallery. Except when you consider she had a full wall at MOCA’s “Art In the Streets,” we say if you have gone museum before, you are doing quite well for yourself. That particular wall at MOCA was a refreshing addition to the exhibit at whole; it was the energy, the documentation of the spontaneity and kinship that goes along with certain brand of not only graffiti, but 21st century young urban culture in general. But, most importantly, it is the joys of taking a photograph that shines through. Here is life; maybe you are living it, too. And if you’re not, get busy. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report staff

Teen Witch will be showing at FIFTY24SF Gallery this November, 2011.

Herbert Baglione

Screen shot 2011 07 20 at 9.42.18 PM 605x404 Herbert Baglione website new site Herbert Baglione Brazil

One of our favorite artists, and friend, Herbert Baglione, just updated and opened a new website, featuring a bunch of works that previously were hard to find from the past 3 years. As you may already know, Herbert is a Brazilian artist based in Sao Paulo, who has had his Visa revoked from traveling within the United States after a mistake at Houston’s airport in late 2007. Because we haven’t seen Herbert since his solo show at Lazarides Gallery in London in 2008, we wanted to make sure we see his art. His bodies of work continue to be some of the most thought-provoking, introspective creations we have see each year. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report.

Swampy “In My Room” Open for 1 Extra Day Today

Review of the show by The Citrus Report:

We have had a bunch of openings that we have visited over the years, a bunch at FIFTY24SF Gallery in particular. But there was something in the energy on the 200 block of Fillmore Street last night, when the first patrons began walking into Swampy’s “In My Room” solo show and installation. At first, the show is clean and simple: 3 large paintings and 8 photographs. They were striking simply based on what we know of Swampy: photos of train-hopping adventures throughout North America, paintings on found objects, and of course, the now widespread and cult-followed Swampy Skull icon.

But then, of course, this show was not just 3 & 8. It was a full installation, with these 11 works just as integral to the concept of the “In My Room” installation as the entire back room experience. This was a “Swampy Show,” the before and after, the work put in and the output, inside the mind and what comes out in paintings and photographs. The life, lifestyle, and the work. The adventure. The obsession. The dedication. The character.

So, of course, you lift the 3rd paintings, and climb into the world behind and inside the Swampy Donkey. Its cluttered, it moves, it makes a sound, and it gets added to by friends and casual passerbys. And most importantly, it is not permanent. —Raymond Brown / The Citrus Report
