Pete Ippel’s Art show Featured in SFweekly

I got a really nice writeup Wednesday in the SFWeekly…Thanks to Hiya Swanhuyser for the article.

Pete Ippel is a modern exponent of a long-standing tradition: the bro artist. Think of athlete-philosophers like Jack Kerouac, Richie Tenenbaum, both Jack Johnsons, or Muhammad Ali…Ippel surfs, plays basketball, and his video work explores issues such as hands-free noseblowing and how weird it is to have emotions about water.
