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.

This mural, called Migrants, Ibrahim, Mingora – Philadelphia, is an exploration of immigration. Ibrahim Shaw, the subject of the work, grew up and studied at a university in Pakistan, then came to Philadelphia to work in his uncle’s food truck.

"Confetti Crackle Pop," works by Kelly Kozma now on display at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia, features an array of mixed media techniques, including hand embroidery, painting, and collage, creating a body of work that shows the growth and transition that occurs in the passing of time. With every individual stitch made, knot tied or circle punched, a new notch is added to my timeline. Because of the meticulous nature and time consuming aspect involved in developing each piece, it feels as though time is physically being marked

Nicomi Nix Turner is an artist we have had our eye on for a bit now, and we are happy to see her new body of work, "No God for a Wanderer" at Paradigm Gallery in Philadelphia on April 24—June 6, 2015. As we just learned, Turner was raised in the Pacific Northwest (Southern Oregon to be exact), and her illustrations that connect both nature and human reflect this "understanding of the perfection in nature."
