I’m stoked to say that I’m living in The Bay again, and it’s hard to believe that I’ve been gone for over 5 years. The crisp air, the down-to-earth mentality of bay folks and the endless amount of things to see and do, are just some things I’ve missed. Other aspects of the bay (which I also love) that will never be elusive are culture and art. San Francisco, alone, is rich in art galleries, and there are tons of exhibits I’d love to check out.
One gallery is FFDG, which is the tangible location of fecalface.com; the art scene-supporting website that features San Francisco artistic talent. An exhibit that is worth peeping is Future Colors of America (FCOA), which was established in 2006 by the trio of Albert Reyes, Matt Furie, and Aiyana Udesen. The story of how it all began is rather cute actually. Cliffs Notes version: Aiyana introduces her artist boyfriend, Matt, to her long-time artist homie, Albert. The two build some kind of artistic bromance, thrown in with a lady homie and they all live happily ever after in a whirlwind of visual adventures.
And when I mean “visual adventures,” I mean just that. If you don’t believe me, look below for a preview of FCOA’s artwork.
FFDG is located at:
