Joseph Arthur Brings His Sound And Vision To Philadelphia’s Locks At Sona

While most of us have trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time, multitasking doesn’t seem to be a problem for Joseph Arthur. So it’s not surprising that he’s found a way to combine his two passions—music and painting—onstage. For an end-of-the-year show at Philly’s the Locks At Sona, the NYC-based Arthur not only played a 23-song set, he also showed off his visual-art chops. MAGNET photographer Chris Sikich was there to capture these portraits of the artist as a music man.
