Join Me for Bainbridge Green’s #BrunchFest, a fundraiser to build Philly’s next great park!

September 21, 2016

So excited to be an official sponsor for Bainbridge Green‘s first annual Brunch Fest, a fundraiser to build 20,000 square feet of NEW park space in the Queen Village/ Bella Vista/ South Street neighborhood!

The event will feature top chefs from around the city cooking up delicious foods to be served on the street where Bainbridge Green park will one day – with all our help – be located.

If you support open space in Philly – please consider clicking HERE to learn more and purchase your ticket!

I think it almost goes without saying that more dynamic parks and open public spaces in our city can offer a LOT of really great opportunities for artists. Like this trio of electrical box murals currently on Bainbridge Green, curated by HAHA x Paradigm! More art in our parks, please!

HAHA x Paradigm Install ‘Pothole Mosaics’ Around Philly with Artist Jim Bachor

September 21, 2016

img_6884img_6944img_6899

Oh my God, I LOVE this! Yet another amazing installation in the Bella Vista/ Queen Village neighborhood by HAHA x Paradigm!

So how did these artistic replies to our underfunded infrastructure come about? According to HAHA x Paradigm’s blog:

“3 years ago, Chicago-based mosaic artist, Jim Bachor got tired of his city’s pothole problem and started installing his beautiful mosaics in them, making them more than just axle savers. 3 successful Kickstarter’s in, and he’s become well-known nationally for these outdoor art installations. He’s hit Chicago’s list of the city’s greatest public art.”

Of course, Philly’s home to more than a few potholes as well. So, HAHA x Paradigm decided to invite Jim to Philly to install three Pothole Mosaics around town!

Locations to all three of Jim’s installations – as well as the locations to all of the wildly popular, three-year-strong collection of other HAHA x Paradigm murals and installations – can be found HERE!

Basket of Deplorables: Philly artist calls them like he sees them…

THIS!

This new wheatpaste series, which has been popping up all around Philly, depicts a group of faceless KKK members gazing up at and (seemingly) revealing themselves to Republican Presidential nominee Donald J. Trump. It’s the work of artist Plamen Veltchev, who submits the following artist statement on his website:

“My inspiration comes from contemporary global conflicts and the struggle of individual freedoms when interlocked with larger forces. I am most interested in unveiling consequences by modern unrest and global fragility. In my new paintings I discharge rather new symbolic meanings of peril, dominant intractable detonations, and infected conquerable liberties. ‘Denied’ is the emblem of deceased human rights and contaminated independence.”

Beautiful New Nether Wheatpaste on Girard Avenue

LOVE this!

Nether is a brilliant Baltimore-based street artist, who in his Instagram bio describes himself and his work as, “driven by rogue beautification, civil disobedience, and strategic actions aimed at sparking dialogue on ignored issues and neighborhoods.”

This beautiful and poignant new wheatpaste is located at 7th street and Girard avenue.

See other work by Nether in Philly here, here, and here!
