One morning in March I woke to find an email to my website, it was from a man named Kiriakos Iosifidis. Kiriakos is one of the creators of Carpe Diem, a magazine chronicling public art in Athens, Greece. Click here to view the website of the Magazine.
Kiriakos had put out a book on public art from all over the globe. He was looking to update and release a second edition and wanted me to be one of the many new artists that would appear. I submitted some hi-res photos and an artist bio, and waited to see the result.
I received word that the book came out in the beginning of December, and I purchased a number of copies in time for the holidays.
The book titled Mural Art #2: Murals on Huge Public Surfaces Around the World from Graffiti to Trompe L'Oeil (ISBN#: 3939566276) is an ambitious collection of artists, and its an honor to be a part of it. There are a great number of Philadelphia Muralists featured within. This book does a great job of portraying the Mural Arts Program and its Artists as a true movement in the arts, and its humbling and fascinating to see how we fit in with public art across the globe.
