INTERSECTIONS brings two of Philadelphia’s well-known and loved “street artists”, Kid Hazo (pronounced has•ohh) and Joe Boruchow, to the same room.  Both artists almost solely install their works in the city of Philadelphia cementing themselves as artists who embody the vibe of our city.

Their work catches your attention and drives conversation… Though their approach to the creation and the life of their works couldn’t differ more, their poignant intersecting in this show brings the evolutionary chain of street art full circle: from the urban to the fine art.

Joe Burochow’s work is often punctuated with words you don’t necessarily associate with street art: poignant and elegant.

He gives his intricate paper cutouts a life outside their custom frames, reproducing them as wheat pastes, integrating his pattern play of stories into the city’s architecture.

Hazo’s belief that art is for everyone punctuates our daily interactions with his light-hearted – one step ahead of you – clever pieces that parody the heart of Philly culture. It reminds us not to take life too seriously (and maybe to stick to just one selfie per day if we can).

The point where one crosses the other plays out on the streets where the impact of their work lies with the beholder who might just want to hold on to that feeling a bit longer.

Kid Hazo’s INSECURITY Takes the Prying Eyes Off You

Kid Hazo Insecurity


Someone’s always watching…or not.

Kid Hazo comes at you with a new install ‘INSECURITY’, mocking the constant need to monitor everything.  So here’s your chance to let it all hang out without unseen peering eyes.  Is that the joke, and someone is watching you while your guard is down?

Nah. If you’re kickin’ it by Frankford Ave, go crazy!

It’s a great ramp up to the ‘INTERSECTIONS’ show at Paradigm Gallery + Studio featuring works from Hazo & Joe Boruchow on Friday, August 28th (5:30 pm – 10 pm).
