Inspiring a Bit of Positivity on Philly’s Streets with Papercut Doilies and ‘MORELOVE’
Love, love, LOVE this!!
Started seeing these papercut doilies all over town a few weeks ago, but never had my camera when I did. Then today, the guy behind these awesome wheatpastes, Tim Gibbon, emailed me about his new project.
Tim, who, by the way, never went to school for any kind of art, said his recent wheatpasting projects are in response to the violence and negativity that plagues Philly. An after-school program coordinate for kids in North Philly, Tim added, “With my doilies and ‘MORELOVE’ wheatpastes I’ve been trying to flip that and inspire a bit of positivity. Sometimes seeing something surprising and beautiful can change your whole perspective.”
I couldn’t agree more.
Damn, I know I say, “I love this,” a lot — and I always mean it — but I really do LOOOVE this!!
