UWP’s Big Giant Head!

Hanging out with Pipelines, we were walking down Chestnut Street when we spotted this! The funny thing? I’ve actually have passed the building this is on a lot since it seems it was first put up, and it incredibly easy to miss. That makes the piece even better because you actually need to slow down in order to realize its even there. It also turns out its been up for a week.

One of the coolest things about UWP’s pieces is the fact that they always tend to last wherever they are. I remember posting a giant sticker he posted on the side of a Inquirer box on Market Street, and it was there for months and months!

The Harlequinade Has Come to Town!

I spotted this back on January 2nd, and I’m kicking myself for not posting this sooner.

Back in October we posted something we called “The Aztec Invasion” where we were captivated by this insanely awesome piece that was done in chalk at Occupy Philly. I spotted the people working on it but never asked anything about it. At the same time, we never really tried to research who may had done it or its meaning.

So imagine my surprise when not only did I find out who was behind it, but was also behind this little discovery from New Years!

Harlequinade Art has a fairly simple mission: A Living Graphical Urban Grimoire. To that end, they’ve already excelled at it!

We’re keeping out eyes out for anything else we can find from these amazing artists! The insane amount of detail in these wheat paste’s just blow my mind, and I can’t tell you just how much I really enjoy finding them! This one was along 2nd Street in Old City, and these masters of the craft tend to hit in and around Center City, so hopefully you’re never too far away from yet another masterpiece!


SPAIN is Crazy!

I was searching around Center City for some awesome photos of Philly Street art when you can only imagine my shock when I saw SPAIN had hit up the building around the Pennsylvania Convention Center!

Spain is easily one of the most daring artists I’ve come across, and to a large degree the intrigue comes from his targets. We’ve covered Spain in the past, and really I wish we could find more of his work! So if you’re ever in the area, look up and around! You may find something you never did before!

SPAIN is Crazy!

VEDO In Philly

Vedo in Philly

Vedo has been posting in Philly for the past few months, but he’s really upped his game over the past month! All along Market Street in Center City, you’re bound to find at least one piece by this incredible artist! I’ve been taking photos like crazy of his work, and presented for your enjoyment is a nice selection of my favorite pieces!
