Yis Goodwin: blending reality and fiction with bold colours
Ever seen a boldly-colored monster regurgitate a killer whale? How about happy clouds ejecting t-rexes from their fluffy bosom That’s what Yis Goodwin, aka NoseGo, specializes in: a contemporary style that mixes wacky fictional creatures with the realism of fine art to deliver highly energetic work. His designs feature abstract patterns full of vibrant colors, and characters derived from his imagination and his surrounding environment.
While much of his current work is done on wood panels and the traditional painter’s canvas, he has extended into new media forms. In fact, he recently teamed up with Broken Compass Studios, an indie game studio, to create Catball Eats It All, a cute iPhone platformer based entirely off his hand-painted art.
