International Artist Visits FW To Finish Pint N Slice Mural May 14

In 2014, the alley wall of Pint N Slice got a makeover from Philadelphia-based artist Yis "Nosego" Goodwin with the artist’s addition of an otherworldly, fantastical hedgehog like illustration. He is returning to Fort Wayne May 14 to finish what he started.

NoseGo is an internationally-recognized artist with a passion for illustration and media arts. He mixes fine art with a contemporary style to deliver highly energetic work. His designs feature an assemblage of patterns, vibrant colors and characters derived from his imagination and his surrounding environment.

The artist was featured in the 2014 FWMoA exhibit “Biological Canvas” organized by freelance curator Josef Zimmerman, which brought together artists who referenced biology—animals, natural processes, human systems, and other elements of the natural world—in their work in the context of contemporary culture. While he was in Fort Wayne, the owners of Pint N Slice welcomed NoseGo to create a mural on their building. Now, it’s time to add the next layer to this work of art. The public is welcome to visit the artist as he finishes his work.
