MOMO has been spending a lot of time in Philadelphia lately, where he is working with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program on two bold new murals as part of their Open Source exhibition. MOMO’s first Philly mural is already done, and MOMO starts on the second wall later this month, a 27-story canvas in the heart of the city. You may remember hearing about Open Source when a JR mural went up in Philadelphia earlier this yearas part of the same exhibition.

MOMO has been one of our favorite muralists in recent years, and we love the abstraction he has brought into the gallery and out onto walls. He just opened a new body of work, "There Are No Wheels in Nature," at Winterlong Galerie in Niort, France. For the show, MOMO created canvases, drawings, did a mural, an installation, a video, and a zine. Take a look at how the mural and installation shots came out...

How can we not get jealous of Momo when looking at this picture of his new mural in Tulum, Mexico and we can see snow from our window? Momo is currently enjoying the white sand beaches, a warm sun, pastor tacos and an artist residency called “Residencia Gorila.” This little tropical oasis just got that much better with the help of this beautiful new piece.

In the August issue, we featured the fantastic abstract mural works of MOMO, and have long been fans of the NYC and New Orleans based artist. He just opened a solo show at May Gallery in New Orleans, and from what we have read, May is a " araw bunker-like space by the St Claude Rail Yard, perfect for oversized installations." And just so you don't start laughing, "Butt Joints describes the method of marrying plywood together that will help us build something large yet simple within May’s space..."

During the mural madness that is Wynwood Walls, Momo painted this easy-on-the-eyes abstract piece. Simple, non-intrusive, and blends into the environment.
