Hot off the heals of her NYC solo show a month back, Sylvia Ji lives and works in LA and is soon off to Melbourne, Australia to speak at Semi-Permanent Sept 17th. Before she heads across the globe she'll be at the opening of the Fecal Face 10 Year Show, and you get to see her incredible works in person. If you see her at the after party @Mezzanine, buy her a drink. She's an amazing person and gifted artist, and we're very pleased that she's participating in our show.
I was just entering the Academy of Art in SF, totally green behind the ears and ready to start a new chapter.
10 years ago, I didn't know much about color, composition, mediums, pretty much all of it except that I loved to draw. I'm still learning, but my work has definitely evolved to become tighter in both technique and concept.
2010 seemed like so far away back then, and now here it is, a decade later. Technology of course was going to be faster and smaller, but who would have thought smart phones and social networking would be so prevalent.
I thought it was pretty ballsy. Fecal and face, two words that you would never really connect art with, but now it's synonymous.
Fecal Face has been a huge part of my art career, it's where my eyes were first opened to really great art. I felt that it gave validity and authority to what artists were doing out there. In 2005 I posted info about my first show, had Ert come and photograph it, and from then on, Fecal has been there.
I just got turned on to Beirut and The XX, Film School is pretty good, and I really love the new Gorillaz album, Plastic Beach.
Hell yeah, i'll be there! It's going to be awesome!
Right now, I've got a December solo coming up at Corey Helford Gallery in Los Angeles. Also i'll be releasing limited edition box sets of prints through theartprint.net this October.
