Yis Goodwin, aka Nosego, offers a particularly colorful and celestial vision of the world in his illustrations of nature. Featured on our blog, in his latest paintings and murals, he depicts imaginary creatures and animals morphing into beautifully rendered landscapes. Nosego will next make his debut in Italy at Galleria Varsi with his latest offering, “Electric Breeze”, opening on November 27th.
Philadelphia based artist Nosego paints colorful and emotive images of animals inspired by the idea that we are all connected to our surroundings. We recently featured his exhibition of multimedia paintings “Along Infinite River”, here on the blog, where Nosego portrays wild animals morphing into mystical environments. For his latest mural titled “Little Moment”, Nosego continues to infuse his work with celestial elements and bright colors, but he also wanted to do something a little “different”.
The work of Philadelphia based artist Yis Goodwin, aka “Nosego” (covered here) is instantly recognizable for his psychedelic portrayal of animals morphing into their surroundings. Nosego’s new series leads us through the artist’s subconscious in his exhibit at Thinkspace Gallery, “Along Infinite River”. The show, which opened last Saturday, features a variety of multimedia pieces including acrylic on panel paintings, drawings and an installation of colorful wall mounted sculptures.
Patterns dance in Nosego’s paintings of morphing creatures that shed their skins to be reborn as psychedelic spirit animals. The Philadelphia-based artist pays homage to various endangered species in his work and paints them in an optimistic light. Whether in his street art or in the studio, Nosego fills his work with interlocking designs that distort his chosen animals’ anatomies into something otherwordly. He remixes familiar imagery into whimsical compositions with dizzying details.
Hi-Fructose recently caught up with Philadelphia-based artist Nosego as he prepares for his upcoming solo show at Thinkspace Gallery. The exhibition, entitled “Open Channels,” opens July 19 and will feature several new paintings as well as mixed media sculpture. Read more and check out an exclusive sneak peek after the jump!
Two painters with complementary practices, Curiot and Nosego attempt to access elusive, mystical elements through their work. Both artists — who specialize in rendering deified creatures whose bodies are composed of various natural and even metaphysical forms — draw as much from Native American imagery as they do cartoons and low brow art. Curiot and Nosego currently have a two-person show at Culver City’s Thinkspace titled “Unknown Elements,” on view through December 21.
