Street Art in the Time of Occupation

It’s been one hell of a week.

I’ve been at Occupy Philly a lot, and this is the first real break I’ve taken. We told you that one of the people at Occupy Philly Arts wanted street artists to come down and do artwork down their to help support the movement! The W.N.R. Crew obliged, and some really cool artists did some great chalk pieces.

Sadly, we got a report that some kids from the suburbs took advantage of the situation and scrawled on the doors of City Hall. Just a note: When we asked artists to come down and help out the Art Crew down there, we meant go down there and ask how you can help! Make signs, make posters, make stickers! Ask these guys how to help. They want you down there, so please show them respect!

Occupy Philly - Power to the Peaceful

We’ve been silent on the blog because we’ve been busy on the streets.

Pipelines and myself have been silently trying to help on the front lines of #OccupyPhilly. We’ve been relatively busy out there, marching with people and directing people around. We haven’t been there 24/7, but we have been there a lot. Currently we were asked to come and talk to the art group of OccupyPhilly. Our contact with the group asked them why they needed us, a graffiti blog, to help them.

They don’t need us. They need YOU.

We know how some artists feel about political street art. We’ve seen the WNR crew do some work, and they want more! Come down and help them with some art, making posters, and doing some awesome chalk drawings! Go down there and talk to the art folks and find a way to help.
