The phrase “Art Life” can mean so many different things. I appreciate the analogy because of Art’s ability to restore what was once broken and discarded, transforming it into something beautiful and transcendent. Life has a way of doing the same in some cases. One such case is that of Philadelphia’s Leroy Edney.
Maitreya Moore (aka Mahogany Mama) is a West Philadelphia artist known for her street photography and beautiful portraits. For "The Uncommon Criminal" exhibit, Maitreya decided to showcase well-known individuals who don't quite fit the mold of your average criminal.
The Uncommon Criminal exhibit is currently on display at The Urban Art Gallery, located at 262 S. 52nd Street in Philadelphia, PA. The exhibit runs until May 1st and every piece is available for purchase.
