The first mural is very beautiful! It is a beautiful mural. Last time I was in Philadelphia I went on a tour to see the murals. It was so surprising that murals were actually located in neighborhoods that looked like slums. Certainly, these neighborhoods were not slums long time ago, but now they are. The tour guide said that the people, who live in slums participated in painting the murals. Is the mural on your photo from the Mural Arts initiative?

the artist was in town as part of philagrafika, a festival celebrating printmaking. i doubt very much that these pieces were officially sanctioned.

So lovely, so desolate. The only people in any of these photos are the ones in the art. Lovely. I would like to see more or learn more about this.

Wonderful snaps! I know that part of Philly, there is a reason why there are no people in these snaps. LOL.
For anyone unfamiliar with SWOON or her work, look here:

Her lines are gorgeous. It takes a lot of talent to make a print that large and get it evenly inked, and then to share it with the world, great!

St. Johns Place Then
from the archives
Walking around Queens this weekend, I noticed a couple of spots with old, faded, graf-like scrawls---which I gradually realized were slightly elevated on the surface...were painted! Did graf predate spraypaint? Does graf as we know it require spraypaint?
