Amberella Installs “City Hearts”

February 16, 2020

New wheatpastes today by Philly/LA-based street artist, Amberella, located at 22nd and Lombard Streets!

Titled City Hearts, Amberella told me more about the series: ” [It] celebrates our city and speaks to who we are as a community of brothers and sisters.

With my roots here (Grandmom), I feel happy and touched by that.”

Amberella has been wheatpasting around Philly since the start of this blog over nine years ago. That first series she created addressed street harassment. But it’s been the different heart series that she began in 2016 that she’s become synonymous with!
