Join me and Tog TeesPano K. for a photowalk exploring the street art of Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood!

Did you know that Philadelphia is home to the most public art in America? And Fishtown is leading the way as our city’s ever-evolving epicenter for dynamic street art, graffiti, and muralism.

Our #FishtownPhotowalk will guide you through the neighborhood’s storied street art scene and offer some hands-on tips for how to best shoot art on the street.

GET YOUR TICKETS HERE!

We’ve got two dates, but each of the tours is limited to 20 people, so be sure to get your ticket(s) soon!

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!

Nero One Installs Around Philly!

September 2, 2016

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…

Sean Martorana’s Awesome New Fish Mural in Fishtown (Duh!)

August 24, 2016

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!

Mysterious Hand-drawn Mailboxes

Not sure who’s doing these hand-drawn pieces on mailboxes around town (I’ve seen a few other people post about them in Instagram), but I really, really kind like them!
