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!
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
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.

I will be on vacation, traveling/exploring Western Texas and New Mexico for the next 2 weeks… Follow me on Instagram (click here) to follow along! Hoping to find some really great stuff – especially in Marfa, Texas.
Updates to this here blog will begin again as soon as I’m back!
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!
Went along with the continually inspiring Kid Hazo this week as he teamed up with the Delaware River Waterfront to install this new fitting ‘No Fishing’ piece at Spruce Street Harbor Park – which, by the way, is now open until September 28th!
