Fishtown Gets Four New Murals From Four First-time Muralists

December 23, 2022

Four awesome new murals have gone up in Fishtown from four up-and-coming Philly muralists!

Located at Frankford and Delaware Avenues and created through Mural Arts Philadelphia’s Fellowship for Black Artists, the murals feature the work of four of the fellowship’s 2022 artists. From left to right in the photo above (and in order of the photos below,) they were created by: Kita Richardson, Dyymond Whipper-Young, Faysal Adger, and Jaz Morse.

For each of these artists, this is the first public mural they have ever created!

The murals are painted on The Fillmore Philadelphia, who was a supporter of the project. And this location inspired the general theme of the project, music and Philly. Each artist took their interpretations from there, and the results are a fantastic addition to this super busy intersection.

Love this project so much, and love opportunities like this where we are see and celebrate new muralists!
