New Nosego Mural for Pow! Wow! Long Beach

Our current main room exhibiting artist Noségo just completed an awesome mural for Pow! Wow! Long Beach.  He used a touch of his panache for mural work for his exhibit “Ingress” as well; make sure to see the exhibition before it closes this Saturday, July 29th.

Thinkspace Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday noon to 6 pm.

Visit the Thinkspace Gallery website to view all available works from Ingress.

Opening Reception of Noségo’s “Ingress” and Drew Leshko’s “The Only Constant”

We kicked off the month with a (third) eye-opening exhibition from  Noségo and Drew Leshko. The colorful dreamscapes from Noségo vibrated on the white walls with bright spirit animals holding within curiosities and stories to encourage our own reflection or simply enjoyment. Leshko continues to document the changing landscape of the hometown of both artists, Philadelphia.  He encapsulates, with great detail, the passage of time and gives meaning to parts of the city’s history that would be soon forgotten at the hands of a bulldozer.

Artist, Joseph Martinez rounds out the exhibitions showing eight pieces from his Designer Bag Lady series in the Thinkspace Gallery office.

All of the exhibitions are on view now through June 29th.

To view available pieces from NoségoDrew Leshko, and Joseph Martinez; please visit the Thinkspace Gallery website.

Interview with Noségo for “Ingress”

Thinkspace is proud to present Noségo’s latest body of work Ingress’ in our project room. Noségo’s colorful and detailed paintings that reference themes like urbanism, the vulnerability of nature and the wild, mysticism, healing, mythologies, and art history are mesmerizing and hypnotizing. In anticipation of Ingress, we have an exclusive interview with Noségo to discuss philosophy and creative growth.

SH: What ideas were you exploring while creating this latest body of work?
NG: While working on the show I’ve been in a bit of a reflective period and I feel that the search of a deeper idea of who I am sparked the visual inspiration for the work.

SH: You always aim to challenge yourself with each new body of work, do you feel you experienced any breakthroughs while creating Ingress? Breakthroughs regarding technique, composition – anything.
NG: Yes most definitely, I feel overall I learned not to force what I’m creating and to have patience
with myself and the work.

SH: Your work has a very philosophical element to it. What is your personal philosophy towards life, do you follow any formal philosophical thought?
NG: Yes, I follow several things I’ve learned over time. I think my opening was in high school after reading “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. Overall my personal rule is to always grow and just forever be a student.

SH: You’ve painted murals in cities around the world, I’m sure everyone is special in their own right but did any city have a particularly memorable story?
NG: Each one has a highlight or memorable moments but I don’t recall anything to stand out over another.

SH: What do you feel is your biggest accomplishment in your art career thus far?
NG: Honestly… just having an art career. I try to only do the things I love and I feel being able to do that at the moment is the biggest accomplishment.

SH: What were you listening to in the background while creating this body of work?
NG: Everything from music to podcast and documentaries.

SH: What is your favorite way to unwind after a long day at the studio?
NG: Sleep.

SH: What has recently influenced your creative palate?
NG: Trusting what I think I want to see and experimenting.

 

Join us for the opening reception, Saturday, July 8th from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Animals in Nosego’s work also hold emotional symbolism for the artist, who uses them as motifs to express his different feelings. When transmuted together, they also come to represent the never-ending connectivity that can be found within nature.
