Of all the current local street artists in Philly, Blip may be my favorite! The style is smart, simple, funny, and interesting. I really enjoy this sticker:

And now for something completely different-
A new artist has emerged, and I have no idea what their name is. No art, just messages, but really good messages. Please oh please don’t be a fucking hipster…
A sign on Chestnut Street around Broad; A Hero Watches over us…
Awesome use of an abandoned building! Looks like MD (Medic), Free Zero, Oddball, and a few others got together to try and make the best use out of a building seeming no one else cares about. Great work!
Still learning how to read tags… UWP? Still, awesome piece!
It’s a snake-guy on a newspaper box. What’s not to love? Found it last summer at 11th and Chestnut.
I wish I knew who this was, it’s really cool! I love typography and for me, this is a really interesting find not only on Market Street, but also on the side of the industrial complex that is The Gallery Mall.
Found this in June. Really dig the gas mask!
On my journeys, I see many things. The recent batch of street art at 11th and Chestnut has been a mixed bag (I think some schmuck was posting advertising there disguised as “Street Art”), this one was one of my favorites! I’ve seen their work in other places, but I don’t have a name.
I’m always pleased when someone puts the Philadelphia City Paper to good use, especially when that means stickering the fuck out of one of their honor boxes!
One of my favorite street artists in Philly, El Toro strikes back in May of last year on South Street! Santa Marias-inspired with a Liberty Bell:
Sometimes I’m simply astounded by what I find around Philly in terms of street art. Really sweet photo mash-up:
Scouring South Broad Street back in May, I happened upon this awesome little piece of sticker-art from Bad Dog!
Saw this in May on South Street:
Found this around City Hall:
