New Wheatpaste from Kimi Tallant in Queen Village

June 13, 2019

In love with this new wheatpaste by Philly-based artist Kimi Tallant located at 5th and Bainbridge streets in Queen Village! (Note: literally like a day after I took these photos some movie posters went over the entire wall, so this paste is no longer there.)

Kimi is the woman behind KWT Designs, which since 2016 has been creating pins, apparel, and assorted flare available for purchase online. “KWT Designs is constantly inspired by travel, tattoos, nature, and small moments of beauty in the world, striving to make all work small pieces of wearable art,” her website reads.

And as you can tell from the photos in this post, Kimi’s recently got into wheatpasting, and I’m very excited for that considering how much I love her designs! I’m generally a fan of figurative work when it comes to street art, and when you add Kimi’s surrealist spin on the human form it just grabs my eye. Not to mention, of course, the empowering feminist undertones/ overtones of a lot of her work, which I also find super refreshing to see in the public space.

Hoping to see more from Kimi around Philly soon!
