Descrição

O Glorious City is an exuberant love letter to San Francisco from Jeremy Fish, a beloved artist who enjoys a massive fan base for his edgy artwork. When Fish was invited to create 100 new works of art in honor of City Hall's 100th birthday, he moved his studio into a City Hall office to become the city's first-ever artist in residence. This celebratory book gathers all 100 pieces of artwork—each rendered in his signature whimsical style—featuring everything from the city's famous architecture and treasured local landmarks to portraits of colorful local residents in a gallery of "unofficial mayors." Together these images form an energetic, visual tour de force showcasing San Francisco's vivacious spirit and vibrant history.

MAGIC ON ANY GIVEN DAY: JEREMY FISH AND SAN FRANCISCO CITY HALL

MEG SHIFFLER

Director and Chief Curator, San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries

On March 19, 2015, Associate Curator Jackie Im and I met Jeremy Fish in the North Light Court of historic San Francisco City Hall to discuss perhaps the craziest proposal the San Francisco Arts Commission (SFAC) Galleries has ever presented to an artist.

He was waiting for us at a small café table, sporting his signature salt-and-pepper beard, canvas of forearm tattoos, and matching custom-made pants and shirt with a quail motif. After quick introductions, I asked if he would consider creating one hundred drawings in approximately one hundred days to celebrate the one hundredth birthday of City Hall.

After almost twenty years as a respected, trailblazing fine artist and commercial illustrator, Jeremy had a good idea how a project of this scale would challenge his creative process and require a deep level of personal commitment, but it was immediately clear that he also recognized the historic relevance and cultural impact of creating this massive, City-commissioned love letter to San Francisco. With a smile and a mischievous twinkle in his eye, he responded, Let’s do it, but do you think I could have an office here? After an hour of rapid-fire conversation, we agreed to move forward and expand the original proposal to include an artist residency, downtown kiosk posters (inspired by an earlier SFAC proposal by Fish), a major exhibition, and a book. That was the moment I learned that Jeremy doesn’t do anything halfway.

Born in 1974 in Albany, New York, Jeremy spent his restless teenage years skateboarding, drawing, and reading Thrasher magazine. There was no place he wanted to be more than San Francisco, which was, according to Jeremy, the skateboarding capital of the world in the mid-1990s, and home to Gwynn and Fausto Vitello, the publishers of skateboarding magazines Thrasher and Slap and later the influential art magazine Juxtapoz. So, in 1994 he relocated here to study painting and screen printing at the venerable San Francisco Art Institute, earned his BFA degree in 1997, and immediately started working for the Vitellos at their print shop producing T-shirts, stickers, posters, and prints. Five years later he was appointed art director for one of their companies, Think Skateboards. Jeremy worked for the Vitellos from 1997 through 2005, and during this time he produced a popular illustrated two-page spread in Slap every month, as well as a poster for Juxtapoz that he credits as one of the vehicles that set his career in
