Even Hecox Studio Visit & Interview
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 28 December 2011 11:25

I first met Evan when I moved to San Francisco's Mission district from New York City in 2001. Evan, whose work I was not only familiar with but also loved, welcomed me to his home where I got to know him, his family and his studio. I ended up photographing him shortly before he and his wife Shawn moved to Denver Colorado in 2003.

Several years had passed until I took a trip out in both 2009 and 2011 to spend some extended time with Evan and his family, photographing him working in his studio, his home and throughout Denver. I have always loved being a bit of a fly on the wall watching him so methodically make art. There's are real sense of technique and pride in everything he does. These photographs represent my most recent trip to Denver, in Autumn of 2011, where I was fortunate enough to stay in their new guest home on their property, which shares a wall with his studio. It's lovely. I hope you enjoy these photographs of Evan and his world. -Andrew Paynter

Interview: John Trippe

So your most recent show in November was at London's Stolen Space where you created works based on buildings and scenes you saw in London. Can you tell us a little bit about the show?

The show in London started with a trip there in June when I wandered all over the city for several days just making observations, shooting photos and trying to get a feel for London. When I make a body of work about a specific place it's important to be there myself, not only to take photos but just to have the experience of what it's like there, the overall feeling of a place. For the rest of the summer and fall I worked on about twenty new pieces based on my trip. The work ranges from pieces that are nearly photorealistic, to other pieces that are a combination of abstract, geometric forms combined with people and elements pulled from the urban environment.

Trying to comprehensively capture London would be nearly impossible, my goal with the show was to offer a glimpse of what London felt like to me as an outsider.

I wanted to avoid showing the most typical, tourist attractions of course. I found myself drawn to the more traditionally working class parts of east and south London that have remnants of post-war industrial buildings, factories, canals, old pubs and such.

Do you travel much? Big fan of London?

I travel out of the country about two or three times a year, and domestically a few times a year. I have a family so I can't be traveling all the time, but I do get out and see a lot of the world. Since I live in Colorado I think it's good for me to travel frequently, I like living in a quiet, easy place but I like to experience things and get inspired. London is pretty fascinating. I love traveling in any really old city. The sense of history, traversing streets where people have been for centuries. In London there is the feeling of all the difficulties that city has had to endure over time and yet it's still there, stronger than ever, it feels important and weighty.

What are your favorite cities aesthetically wise?

I always love how New York looks, just driving in from the airport it just looks as serious as it is, all dark and dense and tough. The Village especially is just one of the most beautiful urban places there is. I love how Hong Kong looks with all the crazy narrow streets running up really steep hills. Paris definitely lives up to it's reputation for charm, although I find it a little less appealing for my own work because it's almost too pretty.

I'll always love the look of San Francisco after having lived there.

In fact, when I return to visit now I think I miss the look of it more than any other aspect, with the hills and the fog boiling over twin peaks, the electric cable lines running over the streets. Los Angeles has the aesthetic of some sort of half-ruined paradise but if you can tune into that notion it has an eery sort of beauty about it, all backlight with that hazy sunlight. Sydney is nice too, it's like an odd combination of San Francisco, San Diego and New Orleans. Tokyo at night makes you feel like you're in Blade Runner.

What kind of projects are you working on these days excluding fine art?

Always a few skateboard graphics for Chocolate. I'm preparing to go to Sydney next month for a mural project in conduction with Monster Children. Some various hand-drawn logos and small illustration projects. I'm speaking at a design conference called Offset in Dublin in March.

While doing a little online research into you and your work, I found some cool desktop images of your work. I now have the American flag one as mine. Thanks. goincase.com/curatedbyarkitip/evanhecox/

Oh yea, I like that flag graphic, I had that case on my own phone for a while. I had fun working on that.

Do you participate in the Denver/ Colorado art scenes at all. Do you get out my to openings?

I do, I wouldn't say that Denver is my focus really, but there are a lot of good things going on here. I especially like David Smith Gallery and Black Book Gallery, they always have good shows. I'll be showing with Jim Houser and Shepard Fairey here in August at Black Book.

The Musuem of Contemporary Art here is a really great small museum, they always have something good showing and it's a lively atmosphere especially on Friday nights when they stay open late. I've shown at the Aspen Art Museum before, that's another really nice small museum here. The Denver Art Museum has a huge and impressive show of Robert Adams photography right now.

Daily routine?

Take my daughter to school, get some coffee. My studio is behind my house, so I just take a few steps out the back door to go to work. I don't have any set routine, it just sort of depends on what I have going. On a good day I would just immediately sit down at my work table and start drawing and painting. On a bad day I would be stressed about deadlines for projects.

I like to work pretty normal hours when I can, I usually stop with creative work by 6:30 or 7, just hang out with the family and cook dinner after that. I do my best work in the morning hours when I'm rested and have some coffee going, I try to reserve that time of day for being creative. E-mails and other business type work I can usually do later in the day when I've burned out.

Music these days?

A dusty record collection in my studio, and classical radio when I'm too lazy to change records. Lately... Panda Bear, Iron and Wine, Beirut, Neil Young, the Kinks.

Skating much?

Not much, especially in December. I get out to the Denver skate park a few times in the summer. I just got a Solitary Arts little cruiser board that I'm excited to ride around on this spring. A lot of making skateboard graphics, not so much actual skateboarding, I'm afraid.

Where you from originally?

Here, Denver, a small town nearby is actually where I grew up. My parents bought an old, stone church and converted it into a house in the late 60's, that where I was raised. It was all very Colorado and hippy in retrospect, my parents friends were artists and potters, they had parties with bluegrass musicians and dirty kids running around. I hated all that when I was a teenager, I just wanted to be in California and skate everyday. Eventually I came back here from San Francisco to be closer to my Dad and so we could afford to buy a house and have some space. Denver is just nice too, I like it here, very easy living. I appreciate Colorado now that I'm older and have a family of my own.

So you still do much work with Chocolate Skateboards?

I used to be in charge of the whole line pretty much, all the boards, t-shirts, ads, everything. It got to be too much and didn't leave enough time for other things, so I back away from that commitment and now I just do a few things for them on a freelance basis, maybe 15 or so board graphics each season. The people at Girl/Chocolate are all great, like good friends to me so I'll always try to help them if they need me and I enjoy doing skateboards.

How did you start working with them to begin with?

I had been living in San Francisco and doing some work in the snowboard industry. Andy Jenkins and Rick Howard had seen some of my stuff via snowboard magazines and contacted me to see if I'd be interested in doing skateboard graphics. I've always been more interested in skateboarding than snowboarding really, so I was excited at the opportunity. I'm very adaptable with my style of illustration, I can take on most any idea and translate it into a skateboard graphic or a series, so I think it's worked out well for me to do so many boards for them over the years.

Alison Blickle @NYC's Kravets Wehby Gallery

Los Angeles based Alison Blickle who showed here in San Francisco at Eleanor Harwood last year (PHOTOS) recently showed new paintings in New York at Kravets Wehby Gallery. Lovely works.


Interview w/ Kevin Earl Taylor

We haven't been featuring many interviews as of late. Let's change that up as we check in with a few local San Francisco artists like Kevin Earl Taylor here whom we studio visited back in 2009 (PHOTOS & VIDEO). It's been awhile, Kevin...


Peter Gronquist @The Shooting Gallery

If you like guns and boobs, head on over to the Shooting Gallery; just don't expect the work to be all cheap ploys and hot chicks. With Make Stuff by Peter Gronquist (Portland) in the main space and Morgan Slade's Snake in the Eagle's Shadow in the project space, there is plenty spectacle to be had, but if you look just beyond it, you might actually get something out of the shows.


Jay Bo at Hamburg's Circle Culture

Berlin based Jay Bo recently held a solo show at Hamburg's Circle Culture featuring some of his most recent paintings. We lvoe his work.


NYCHOS @Fifty24SF

Fifty24SF opened Street Anatomy, a new solo show by Austrian artist Nychos a week ago last Friday night. He's been steadily filling our city with murals over the last year, with one downtown on Geary St. last summer, and new ones both in the Haight and in Oakland within the last few weeks, but it was really great to see his work up close and in such detail.


Gator Skater +video

Nate Milton emailed over this great short Gator Skater which is a follow-up to his Dog Skateboard he emailed to us back in 2011... Any relation to this Gator Skater?

Congrats on our buddies at Needles and Pens on being open and rad for 11 years now. Mission Local did this little short video featuring Breezy giving a little heads up on what Needles and Pens is all about.


BANDES DE PUB / STRIP BOX

In a filmmaker's thinking, we wish more videos were done in this style. Too much editing and music with a lacking in actual content. Just because you can doesn't mean you should.


AJ Fosik in Tokyo at The Hellion Gallery

Matt Wagner recently emailed over some photos from The Hellion Gallery in Tokyo, who recently put together a show with AJ Fosik (Portland) called Beast From a Foreign Land. The gallery gave twelve of Fosik's sculptures to twelve Japanese artists (including Hiro Kurata who is currently showing in our group show Salt the Skies) to paint, burn, or build upon.


Ferris Plock - Online Show, April 25th

FFDG is pleased to announce an exclusive online show with San Francisco based Ferris Plock opening on Friday, April 25th (12pm Pacific Time) featuring 5 new medium sized acrylic paintings on wood.


GOLD BLOOD, MAGIC WEIRDOS

Backwoods Gallery in Melbourne played host to a huge group exhibition a couple of weeks back, with "Gold Blood, Magic Weirdos" Curated by Melbourne artist Sean Morris. Gold Blood brought together 25 talented painters, illustrators and comic artists from Australia, the US, Singapore, England, France and Spain - and marked the end of the Magic Weirdos trilogy, following shows in Perth in 2012 and London in 2013.


Jeremy Fish at LA's Mark Moore Gallery

San Francisco based Fecal Pal Jeremy Fish opened his latest solo show Hunting Trophies at LA's Mark Moore Gallery last week to massive crowds and cabin walls lined with imagery pertaining to modern conquest and obsession.


John Felix Arnold III on the Road to NYC

Well, John Felix Arnold III is at it again. This time, he and Carolyn LeBourgios packed an entire show into the back of a Prius and drove across the country to install it at Superchief Gallery in NYC. I met with him last week as he told me about the trip over delicious burritos at Taqueria Cancun (which is right across the street from FFDG and serves what I think is the best burrito in the city) as the self proclaimed "Only overweight artist in the game" spilled all the details.


FRENCH in Melbourne

London based illustrator FRENCH recently held a show of new works at the Melbourne based Mild Manners


Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.


Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.


Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.


NYCHOS Mural on Ashbury and Haight

NYCHOS completed this great new mural on the corner of Haight and Ashbury in San Francisco on Tuesday. Looks Amazing.


Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding


"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

I just wanted to share with you a piece I recently finished which took me 4 years to complete. Titled "How To Lose Yourself Completely (The September Issue)", it consists of a copy of the September 2007 issue of Vogue magazine (the issue they made the documentary about) with all faces masked with a sharpie, and everything else entirely whited out. 840 pages of fun. -Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.

SF Giants' World Series Trophy & DLX
Wednesday, 04 March 2015 17:21

I'm not sure how many people are lucky enough to have The San Francisco Giants 3 World Series trophies put on display at their work for the company's employees to enjoy during their lunch break, but that's what happened the other day at Deluxe. So great.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.

Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

NYPD told to carry spray paint to cover graffiti
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 10:37

nyc_graffitiNYC --- A new graffiti abatement program put forth by the police commissioner has beat cops carrying cans of spray paint to fill in and cover graffiti artists work in an effort to clean up the city --> Many cops are thinking it's a waste of resources, but we're waiting to see someone make a project of it. Maybe instructions for the cops on where to fill-in?

The NYPD is arming its cops with cans of spray paint and giving them art-class-style lessons to tackle the scourge of urban graffiti, The Post has learned.

Shootings are on the rise across the city, but the directive from Police Headquarters is to hunt down street art and cover it with black, red and white spray paint, sources said... READ ON
