MOMO Starts 2014 with a brand new street art mural at the Residence Gorila in Tulum, Mexico. 1

Tulum is laid-back town on Mexico’s Caribbean coast where MOMO spent the last few days working on this signature abstract piece at the Residence Gorila.

MOMO is known for thoughtful post-graffiti: experiments include tagging his name a tag the width of Manhattan, over-sized outdoor collage, tide powered sculpture, a computer script which makes his art for him.
Born in San Francisco, the American street artist has traveled most of his life, discounting six years New York. He joined his first graffiti crew back in 1999 while living in Europe, found his use of colour while employed in the Caribbean, and fell for outside art while living outside: in a cave for a year, in a truck for a year, and in a tent for a year.

Take a look at more angles and process shots after the break and then check back with us soon for more updates from MOMO.
