    Artist's Biography

    Mat Tomezsko is a Philadelphia based artist primarily producing paintings influenced by the social environment of the city and the urban experience. His paintings often reflect social issues and conditions, and are made up of materials and imagery drawn from everyday visual language. Tomezsko is a Tyler School of Art graduate, and has participated in exhibitions at various commercial and underground galleries. He has also made a number of temporary public art installations, an example of which, Look Long and Look Good, a series of 30 paintings, can be seen on Main Street in Manayunk, and Here is Your Mirror, a moving installation currently on view at Second Street and Germantown Avenue in Northern Liberties.
