Brazilian Street Artist Stencils Inspiring Messages Around Philly

May 16, 2017

A series of new inspiring stencils have started popping up around Philly. All signed with the hashtag “#OraculoProject,” they’ve so far been spotted on the Ben Franklin Bridge as well as on Front street between Master and Thompson streets in Fishtown (photographed above) next to that pair of patriotic murals by artists Glossblack and Evan Lovett!

The two (so far) found in Philly share the same message: “Stop here. Appreciate life for a minute. And smile. #OraculoProject”

After a quick Google search I found this enlightening article by Nicole Levy on DNAInfo.com, a website that describes itself as “New York’s leading neighborhood news source.”

In the article, Levy interviews the artist who goes on to say about the stencils that they’re “simple messages that we all know but we kind of forget [with all the] information we receive and process every single day and everybody in a rush.”

Check out the rest of that article here, and comment if you’ve found more Oraculo Project stencils around Philly!
