Street Art Volume III; Industrial Wanderer

Persuaded by the weather that I should probably make the sun my friend, I went in search of art in the city. I wanted to find some large pieces. Particularly large walls with one artists vision on it or jumbled up  graffiti and wheat pastes. I started by passing through Port Richmond and found next to nothing. I found a wheat paste

Columbus Ave

Columbus Ave- by street artist Get Up

and a ridiculous Buddhist temple at 6th and Ritner. I decided to go through the industrial areas and hoped to find some art on some run down buildings or forgotten nooks. I passed the towering SS United States ended around the Naval Yard and swooped through the stadium complex.  I wanted to get some close ups of the murals I have been looking at while standing on the smokers steps on the north-eastern side of Lincoln Financial Field that I have frequented over the years. I also found a Mummers mural and a couple nice wheat pastes. Including the one above by street artist “Get Up” It’s certainly the time to be out and about in the city.

Also I found out the Arts on South project is doing a mural of The Roots. The Philadelphia based band that serves as Jimmy Fallon’s house band.The mural will be at 6th and South.

    • I credited you and will link to your site. I credited you before in a different slideshow on the Bens and outside the Lorraine Hotel. Which im guessing is yours. Love your Philly sports-centric stuff. il try to look at ur site so i can tell if a piece is yours in the future if thats all good with you. Not always easy to tell. Keep it up your stuff is great! I think i saw crossingbroad or the700level.com using one of ur pics before. Big fan. I hope I can do more in the future to catalog your art
