Biography

Morrison received his MA in Fine Arts from Goldsmiths College of Art, London, in 1998. In 2009 the Horticultural Society of New York held a solo exhibit of his work; he has also been included in exhibits at the Museum of Modern Art, Tate Britain, and the Andy Warhol Museum.

Project Description

Paul Morrison has created a new work for Moore College Galleries' 40-foot long exterior wall along 20th Street. The work incorporates found images of the natural world culled from various sources including pop culture, art history and science that are manipulated, edited and collaged together to create a single fantastical landscape on the streets of Philadelphia.
