Interview with Scrapple TV’s ‘Art Phag’

September 30, 2014


Awesome little interview this week inside my studio (aka the makeshift desk I have in my bedroom) by John Shirk for Scrapple TV‘s ‘Art Phag':

“In this episode of Art Phag we chat with the creator of Philadelphia’s popular street art and graffiti blog, STREETS DEPT. Conrad’s blog has become an ever-growing archive of contemporary street art in and around Philadelphia. The photos within this episode have been contributed by many local photographers and showcased with further accreditation on Conrad’s blog.”

REALLY love what those guys at Scrapple TV are doing, and to be honest I’m just completely honored to be interviewed by them… Definitely go check out their YouTube and subscribe to their stuff, it’s well worth it!

Yesterday was “Laundry Day” in Philadelphia, and while you were getting your work week wears ready for Monday, Kid Hazo was finally putting that Monopoly iron across the street from City Hall to good use!

Be sure to check out this piece – as well as many more equally clever installations – at Kid Hazo’s first-ever solo show opening this Friday, October 3rd at LMNL Gallery at Bluecadet from 7-9PM… See y’all there!

Pyramid Oracle Installs in North Philly and Northern Liberties

Had the pleasure of meeting and shooting New York-based (for now) artist, Pyramid Oracle, as he put up some new in North Philly and Northern Liberties over the weekend.

Pyramid Oracle has been putting up work in Philly for about a year now. Each of his wheatpastes are individually hand-painted, as you can see in the first few photos above, which I think helps to add so much to the final paste… Absolutely LOVE his work!

Check out Pyramid Oracle’s Instagram HERE for more shoots of the work he installed around town over the last week.

VIDEO: Cory J Popp Premiers New ‘Wastelands’ Series Documenting Abandoned Philadelphia, Episode I Features Exploration with Me

September 18, 2014

So incredibly honored, first of all, to be filmed by Cory J Popp. He is without a doubt one of the best at this. Absolutely LOVE his videos, most recently the one he did with Mike Smith, as well as the one with Billy Cress and Austin Hodge… Cory’s a genius!

That said, I’m SUPER excited to announce the premier of Cory’s new 4-part series titled ‘Wastelands,’ documenting the world of urban exploration… The first episode of which features me, and I’d be honored if y’all took a look (above!)

As Philadelphia’s abandoned spaces continue to draw me in, I’m happy to have this opportunity to share some of my thoughts on why they seem to inspire me so much.

My Dog Sighs Installs All Around Philly

This past weekend, UK artist, My Dog Sighs, was invited to Philly by the HAHA x Paradigm art project to create an installation along with two Philly-based artists in Queen Village, as well as to create the mural below at 2nd and Poplar in Northern Liberties.

Naturally, however, My Dog Sighs found some time to install a number more pieces, including four of his famous tin cans, in different spots all around the city. (Not naming locations at the artists request.) And, to my delight, I got to follow him around and photograph the whole thing.

Come back anytime, My Dog Sighs!
