Paul Ferraris is a man of many gas tanks. When not teaching full time, he's kicking up dust down some unbeaten path, looking for empty waves and good lighting. It's always a good day when opening up a fresh batch of photos from the old legend.

We're really excited to announce our next show at the Mollusk Gallery in San Francisco with renowned Australian artist Paul McNeil on Saturday, October 8th from 7-10pm.

McNeil has published several art books, co-founded The Art Park (which has supported many celebrated Mollusk artists through it's residency program) and designed endless merchandise for musicians including the Beastie Boys, Beck, Pavement, Rolling Stones, Dinosaur Jr and Sonic Youth.
We are jazzed to bring his spirited work to the states!

We are stoked to present the San Francisco screening of George Trimm's newest film, Forbidden Trim - Thursday, August 4th at 7pm at the historical Roxie Theater in San Francisco!
This Kickstarter funded surf flick was shot entirely on Super 8 and 16mm film, and features a truly epic cast including Colin Whitbread, Bradford Walters, Benny Geren, Danica Elbertse, Brooks Nielson, Toshi Tanaka, Jared Mell, Alex Mars, Alex Knost, Martin Lazlo, Reno Galassi, Lanna Lyon, Brian Stewart, Danielle Ramaziotti, Andy Nieblas, and Harrison Roach shot across five different countries.
Described as a recon mission that throws the main character, Kilroy, into Calderon – a top secret stretch of secluded land in Central America where the coast is wild and the waves are perfect. Kilroy’s superiors look for intelligence on a global crime syndicate rumored to be controlling this forbidden coastline. Using surfers as cover, Kilroy finds himself face to face with the Big Boss himself where he must decide who and what he’s fighting for. The film uses practical effects techniques from the past including the building of miniatures that were photographed and edited into the movie. The film is custom score by The Forbidden Trim Band and features songs from additional artists such as The Budos Band, La Femme, and Fuzz.
This screening is likely to sell out so pick up your tickets online through the Roxie Theater here. Any tickets left will be available for sale at the box office.
