The best part about being a Philadelphian (if that’s even a word) is realizing the melting pot of talent that the city has hidden deep within. It wasn’t until last year that I was introduced to the work of Yis “Nosego” Godwin and I must admit that there was no guessing about if I liked it or not for me It was pretty much and instant hit . Nosego pieces embody the definition of nostalgia. His color and pattern choices give off vibrant child like energy which makes me love it since I myself am a child at heart . His fun-filled style seamlessly bridges the gap between conventional contemporary and fine arts to create and imaginative clash ripped straight from the pages of his mind which I am positive is a group home for some of the greatest characters that have yet to be seen. Nosego’s work has been featured all over Philadelphia ,to Los Angles and even in the UK.
Be it a gallery opening , local shops , walls, and doors Nosego work brings life to any canvas no matter the size or object .
I would have to say that he is one of my favorite artist and I’m always excited to see what new characters he brings to life on his canvas of Choice although with so many awesome characters its kind of hard to pick a favorite . So what I will say is that as a kid if I had an imaginary friend it would be the bear like character that is usually the container for other things and his animal skin/head would constantly change during our adventures .( Nosego needs a cartoon ).
But Thats enough of my ranting . If you are digging the high energy, fun-filled and colorful work of Yis “Nosego” Goodwin as much as I am you can snag one if his prints by clicking here. And keep you eyes wide when walking down the street you may find yourself face to face with a Nosego .
