G1988, 941 Geary St, & Space Gallery

This Saturday a bunch of us went into the city for a few shows, well actually it was one, but we ended up finding about two others as we were before I get further into this post, I'm not really here to review shows...just want to post about the evening in general sooooo, The first was a three person show with Jeremiah Ketner, Yosuke Ueno, and Ewelina Ferruso...I got to see Jeremiah Ketner's work in person for the first time well actually all three artist's work for the first time, I couldn't get over how Jeremiah did all the cross hatching technique with a single brush, My friend and I swore it was a fan brush haha, definitely time consuming, but well worth it...Ewelina's work was very detailed and I'm bummed that I didn't get to take pics, as the evening progressed I got caught up talking with people which lead to no photos..but needless to say her work was amazing, such detail for such small paintings that were encased in shadow boxes with the title of the paintings engraved on gold plaques...Then there was Yosuke Ueno and to be honest I liked all three artist that night, but Yosuke's worked really grabbed me, such innocence and dreamlike feel to his paintings I literally kept going back to stare at them through out the night...He definitely got the gears going in my head to further develop and push my style are a few pics of the show....

The next stop was 941 Geary St...I think this is a fairly new spot and the gallery is HUGE! and the place was packed, definitely a different vibe and crowd than the earlier show...It was the opening for Glen E. Friedman "F*uck all that" which consisted of photos from Glen Danzig, Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys and well you get the gist..Some solid photos and the back wall had collabs between him and Shepard Fairey..for those who don't know about him do yourself a favor and check him out!
