We are very excited for an amazing art show at our cafe by the talented Philadelphia based artist Mariko. The show will be in our 221 Church St. Philadelphia PA 19106 Cafe throughout February and March. Please join us for Opening Reception: First Friday, March 2 6-8 p.m.

Mariko is an artist and designer, currently living in Philadelphia, PA. Her international background, including her upbringing in Japan and travels in Asia and Europe influences her work greatly.

Mariko is interested in the anxiety of not belonging due to cultural differences and/or communication difficulties and the isolation this provokes. Her work is based on her own experiences and is expressed through language, body gestures and aggressive, instinctive mark making layered within different media.
