Y’all, I am absolutely falling for new Philly street artist Yuenglingblingbling‘s latest stickers… These are just amazing!
In fact, I’m so excited for her that I’ve asked Yuenglingblingbling to sell some work at #YesWeVote, the street art fair and voter registration celebration that I’m hosting at Tattooed Mom THIS Friday: more details here!
Hope to see you out Friday, and can not wait to see more work from Yuenglingblingbling!
So excited to announce today that I’ve partnered with Tattooed Mom for a very fun event to (hopefully) get as many young, creative Philadelphians registered to vote as possible – and sell a bunch of art in the process!
Yes We Vote
A Street Art Fair + Voter Registration Celebration
Join Streets Dept’s Conrad Benner and Tattooed Mom for a one-night-only celebration of street art and voting. See and buy art from some of your favorite Philly street artists, then let us help you register to vote. (Or update your registration!)
#YesWeVote will kick off a month long voter registration drive at Mom’s. From Friday, September 9th through October 11th (the last day to register in PA), you can register to vote at Tattooed Mom – you officially have no excuses!
Invite your friends on Facebook here, and see y’all out on September 9th!
If you’ve taken a walk in Philadelphia the last eight months or so, chances are you’ve run into one of Nero One‘s pieces. Starting as a sticker artist, Nero’s installations as of late have come in two equally brilliant and eye catching forms: the first, cursive letter text either stenciled onto a wall or stenciled onto large paper then wheatpasted; the second, hand-painted black house cats (now even sometimes dogs.)
His work with text on large wheatpasted paper started catching my eye earlier this year, and much like Amberella’s heart touching, text-based installations it has become very popular to photograph and post on social media. If you follow this blog, or my Instagram, you know I’m a huge fan of both these artists.
So needless to say, when Nero invited me out yesterday to follow him around as he installed new works – including his largest cat wheatpaste to-date – I was thrilled to say yes!
See more photos from the day below. And note: While in an effort to help preserve these pieces I don’t mention their locations, there are plenty enough clues in the photos for the knowing Philadelphian to figure out where they are, if you wish to find and photograph any piece yourself! Read more…
In Fishtown there are so, so many tributes to fish. If you’ve ever walked through the neighborhood, you know what I mean. This new fish mural by Sean Martorana at Berks and Gaul streets, however, is perhaps my favorite!
Still in love with Sean’s ballerina in Northern Liberties too… More Sean Martorana murals, please!
