This Friday, May 18th, FFDG in San Francisco will be hosting the triumphant return of artist Dave Kinsey for his first solo show in the Bay Area in over ten years. Kinsey, who we featured way back in HF Vol. 13, is widely considered a founding father of the new contemporary West Coast scene. His early street campaigns alongside a young Shepard Fairey gained them both acclaim, and Kinsey’s gallery work has been a hit in the fine art world as well (see our coverage of his most recent solo at Joshua Liner here.)
‘Lost for Words,’ Kinsey’s latest looks to expand on his figurative
roots, incorporating elements of collage (book pages notably and hence
the show title perhaps) with bright contrasting colors and sharp geometry on
panels of chipboard. Get a peek at some of the new work, as well as
inside the artist’s studio, below.
