Yis “Nosego” Goodwin is a Philadelphia-based artist with a passion for illustration and media arts. He mixes fine art with a contemporary style to deliver highly energetic work. His designs feature an assemblage of patterns, vibrant colors and characters derived from his imagination and his surrounding environment.
Childlike and unerringly spontaneous, the artist’s creatures are whimsically grotesque and captivating; culled intuitively from images or themes that resonate and linger in the recesses of the artist’s imagination. With the skill of an accomplished illustrator and graphic artist, Nosego’s images are concise and graphically powerful, expressing the pure unadulterated enjoyment in the creative play of their making. They are equal parts fantasy and technique, and reveal the impressive breadth of Nosego’s uncensored vision.
"Oh, NoseGo... :happy sigh: - what's NOT to like? His compositions are created from collages of exploding crystals, puffy balloon hands, bubbly cartoonish characters with paint rollers, tigers perched on floating islands, and sharks swimming in sparkly technicolor goo. His paintings look like snapshots of dreams you would have while tripping on acid in a toy store."
