The Visit Philly campaign posters aren’t so bad – they just don’t always read as my version of Philly. If I didn’t look close enough, I’d think they’d finally gotten hipper and more in tuned to the city’s vibe. But I should have known…that’s what’s so fun about Kid Hazo’s work, you really have to be observant to catch the joke.
Our favorite Philly Art Blogger & photographer was first on the scene (as usual). He gave a really great breakdown of Hazo’s Dear Street Art Lovers Poster:
“In case you need a little help cracking the ‘Dear Street Art Lovers’ one: We got Tagged Up Elephants (Cornbread), Sticker Characters (The Sticky Bandits), Black and white paper cut outs (Joe Burochow), Yarn bombed stuff (Ishknits) , stick dudes (Stikman), Mythical Animal Murals (NoseGo), Braille Art (Sonia and Austin), Conspiracy Street tiles (Toynbee Tiles) AND Ben Franklin wheat paste stencily janws (Get Up Art).”
You can find these new installs around Chestnut Street between Broad and 18th.
