Had the opportunity to hang out with LA artist, WRDSMTH, last week as he came to town to install TONS of new work around the city.

On our outing (all the photos above) we hit up Bella Vista, the Italian Market, and Washington Square West, but WRDSMTH was in town for about a week, so there’s plenty more pieces elsewhere!

Streets Dept Highlighted at ThinkFest 2014

November 20, 2014


 
I think it goes without saying that I really, really love this city and its potential for artists, creatives and young people alike. And it’s really exciting to share my thoughts with more and more people over the years.

That’s why I was super honored to be highlighted in a video that premiered at ThinkFest 2014 last week by the folks at Philadelphia Magazine. ThinkFest, if you weren’t sure, is an annual event that, according to Philadelphia Magazine, brings “our city’s biggest thinkers together to share their boldest ideas and most inspiring stories.”

Would love for y’all to check out my video above!

And see all of the ThinkFest 2014 videos HERE, with talks from designer/Project Runway Winner Dom Streater, Philly Love Notes’ Emma Fried-Cassorla, Bluecadet’s Josh Goldblum, and maaaannnny more!

You may remember when I explored Graffiti Pier last summer, posting this plead to the city to protect this creative space and leave it be as a mecca for graffiti writers and graffiti appreciators alike.

This week, Philly-based photographer and popular Instragrammer Druf has sent me these amazing photos of Graffiti Pier at night… Can’t say enough how much I love this space, and how important it is for the city. (P.s. check out more of Druf’s photography here!)

Wastelands – Part Two: Tracy Levesque

November 12, 2014


 
You may remember back at the end of September, Cory J Popp released the first in a series of four videos exploring abandoned spaces in Philly with four different urban explorers. I was supremely lucky to be the first photographer featured, lucky because Cory is an amazingly talented filmmaker and these videos are turning out incredibly – watch the first episode here!

The video embedded above is the second in his series, featuring Tracy Levesque, a super talented photographer – one of my favorites (follow her here!)

Looking forward to Part Three…
