If you (somehow) missed it last week, Shepard Fairey (aka Obey Giant) was in town installing his first ever large-scale mural in Philadelphia titled ‘Lotus Diamond,’ located on Frankford avenue at Thompson in Fishtown…  This is the first of three scheduled projects that Shepard will create with Mural Arts in the coming year!

Shepard, as I was happy to find out for myself, was an incredibly nice dude in person and spend about 45 minutes the one day I was there talking with admires, signing posters, and even posing for one of my #PhillyJumps shots…

Of course, Shepard also installed some less commissioned pieces while in town, including these two in Port Richmond and Fishtown respectively…

Awesome dude, awesome mural… Very excited to see what else Shepard does in Philly this year!
