Gritty Strips Down for the Holidays In New South Street Wheatpaste by Artist Marisa Velázquez-Rivas

December 24, 2019

Philly based street artist Marisa Velázquez-Rivas is getting Philly’s favorite mascot “Phestive af” for the holidays with a new wheatpaste installed today at 3rd and South Streets featuring a paint-me-like-one-of-your-French-girls-posed Christmas Gritty bookended by the Phillie Phanatic and whatever the 76ers’ mascot is called!

Avid reads of this blog may remember Marisa’s Kenzinger-bearing Santa Gritty from last year. Does this mean the artist will be creating holiday themed gritty wheatpastes every year now? Time will tell! In the meantime, click here to read more about Marisa Velázquez-Rivas in our 2018 interview.

Happy Holidays, y’all!
