|"P.O.S." by Paul Oxborough|
Thanks to Allegra Oxborough for alerting us to some cool news (who, by the way, some might recognize from the lyrics of P.O.S.'s song "Optimist": "I made this beat for Allegra Oxborough/She taught me how to do the thing with the cups"). Allegra's father, Paul Oxborough, was recently accepted into the British Portrait Awards for his portrait of P.O.S.
, and several of his other Minnesota-inspired paintings are on display as part of an exhibit he is showing at the Eleanor Ettinger Gallery
in Soho, NYC.
Another painting of P.O.S. is included in the exhibit, and the title borrows a lyric from one of his songs, "We Are Not For Them":

Other locally inspired paintings in his collection include a striking portrait of the coat check employees at First Avenue, a scene from La Belle Vie restaurant near Loring Park, the iconic Mickey's Diner car, and a mini donuts stand at the State Fair.
