MOMO Does New Work in Brooklyn, Maximally

Posted on October 8, 2012

Brooklyn got a visit from former New Yorker MOMO this week as he stopped by for a few days after summer trips to FAME festival in Italy, the Bien Urbain project and a collaboration with Eltono in Besançon, France, and just before he headed to Baltimore for a lecture today at MICA.  A staple in the mid-2000s NY Street Art scene known by many for his wheat-pasted tissue paper geometric formations and screen prints, you may remember more recently seeing his massive work for Baltimore this spring for Gaia’s OWB project and we’re really glad he is participating in our gallery show curated by Hellbent in Red Hook right now called GEOMETRICKS.

An easy-going ever-thoughtful modern minimalist who has a love for graffiti fundamentals, MOMO is usually experimenting with his pieces, his process (see his MOMO Maker), his techniques. You may grow familiar with the vocabulary he uses but you’ll never see the same outcome twice because his exploratory mind is always spacing out new ways to deduct, add, unmask, recombine, and ultimately find balance.

Here he leaves his newest marks on a wall in Brooklyn in collaboration with Bushwick Five Points.
