The other day I discovered that Isaiah Zagar had created a mosaic on the store front of a print framing shop around the corner from my house.

For those of you who don’t know Isaiah Zagar, he is a Philadelphia artist who creates mosaic murals on walls and storefronts. Most of his murals are in South Philadelphia, where I live, but he has done murals in other cities.

His largest mosaic work is an indoor/outdoor maze of mosaics called Magic Gardens. He uses mirrors, glass, bottles, his handmade tile, and found objects plastered on the walls to create his masterpieces. I love the whimsical elements in his work.
