This may come as potentially upsetting news to anyone racist enough to be uncomfortable with the idea of a black Santa.

Diego Romero’s Awesome New ‘Honoring the Ancestors’ Mural in Fishtown

December 6, 2016

LOVE this new Mural Arts mural by Diego Romero on the Fillmore in Fishtown!

Titled ‘Honoring the Ancestors’, Diego’s mural is a portrait of his grandfather. As Mural Arts writes on their Instagram:

Diego’s design incorporates pattern work inspired by the Huichol people of Mexico, who honor the connections between their ancestors and nature.

This gate on the Fillmore is curated by Mural Arts and is rotated about every six months… See pervious murals on this gate by artists NDA and Nether!

Joe Boruchow Reveals New “Transition” Wheatpaste

December 5, 2016

Incredible!

Based off the increasingly political nature of Joe Boruchow‘s work as of late, I have to imagine this wheatpaste and its title have to be a comment on the Trump transition. But as always, Joe leaves the interpretation up to us!

Paste is located on Spring Garden street at 9th.

“The Next Time You Raise A Hand to Me…” Ishknits Installs New Yarnbomb

December 4, 2016

LOVE this!

New yarnbomb today on 11th street at Callowhill by Philly’s own Ishknits. Inspired by a Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones) quote, Ishknits’ new installation reads: “The next time you raise a hand to me will be the last time you have hands.”

Ishknits has done a lot of incredible work lately around abuse, including this piece for Truth To Power and these pieces for Philadelphia, Goddamn. She’s even recently written an article for WHYY’s Newsworks about how the lack of justice compounds the pain and shame of abuse.

More photos from today’s installation below… Read more…
