How Lovely Is This Wheatpaste by Nuto?

August 22, 2022

On a much overdue journey around this city this week to begin to document some of the many new works of art in our public space that have popped up over the summer (and that I’ve yet to document/blog about), I came across this lovely wheatpaste of a potted plant by Philly-based street artist, Luiza Cardenuto (aka Nuto)!

While I later learned from the artists’ Instagram that this artwork was installed quite a while ago in September of 2020, I figured you might have also missed it since it’s tucked behind a pair of trash and recycling receptacles at the intersection of 12th and Christian Streets in South Philly. At nearly two years old, this wheatpaste has held up so well!

Nuto has spent the last couple of years wheatepasting beautifully intricate illustrations of potted plants and flowers around Philly, bringing a little nature back to Philly’s public space. And I for one love when I run into one of them.
