My Work in a New Mural Book / by EricOkdeh

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.

Here is the Amazon link to the book, as of this post there is a sale...
