Obsurity Arts

I was privileged to be able to meet the owner and founder of Obscurity Arts , Josif Palmoulsos, on a recent tour of his live/work space.
This plain white warehouse hides a lot of treasures.

Upon entering the building I was greeted not only by this awesome guy,

but also by this guy!

  Josif bought this warehouse with the idea of providing artists not only with a place to work and live, but also as a  place to share information and work together with other artists and was kind enough to share a tour of this space with my friend, Lennie, and me.
Some of his larger than life artwork

The most interesting part of the tour was seeing how Josif created his sculptures.
