MOMO 

Using Practical Geometry, a technique used by masons and carpenters to render geometric shapes, MOMO has developed a methodology for creating abstract art. Over the summer, MOMO taught his methodology to students in Mural Arts’ Art Education program, and then painted a mural with the students, using the same techniques. The workshops were complemented by creating “how-to” videos that instructs others on implementing the practice. In October, youth from the Art Education classes taught MOMO’s techniques to the general public.

During his stay, MOMO used the same technique to create a monumental 22-story mural at the Sonesta, Philadelphia.
