Some sketches by F. Omar Telan from Poets on the Porch 2014 at Ryerss Museum and Library. Mel Brake-Mike Cohen-George Wyelsol, Maria Masington, Frank Wilson, Hayden Saunier, Bernadette McBride.
F. Omar Telan was born in Industrial Philadelphia during the 1876 centennial. With his decidedly halo halo background, Omar adds a singular perspective to Asian American expression. Neo-Futuristic, omgsototallygoth, and absolutely suburban fabulous, Omar appeals to his fellow artist who understands how satire sometimes involves eating children. Boom-bastic and introverted, he fascinates the casual audience with his ability to plumb the underbelly of his own psyche while simultaneously appreciating delicious, chilled plums.
