Yis “Nosego” Goodwin is a Philadelphia-based artist with a passion for illustration and media arts. His art combines patterns, bright colors and imaginary characters, which stem from his imagination and his environment. His artistic career started in 2004, during the last year of high school. In the previous years he followed traditional painting lessons that allowed him to immediately combine murals to graffiti.
Nosego’s works are dreamlike visions that lead us to the realm of the unconscious, which he transports into reality to ennoble space and matter. The viewers are first captured by the colors that animate subjects, then they notice the thriving of details and their meanings and are carried in a thousand crevices of a timeless world that combines observation with deep reflection.
