Beautiful Times in Philadelphia

Artists, Amanda Marie & X-O breezed through the City of Brotherly Love Philly on their Beautiful Times art tour and left behind some street art gems.

It was amazing to have them visit with HAHAxPARADIGM while they were here. We secured Amanda Marie a great location in a community garden for one of her adorable storybook like camping murals.

X-O took to the streets and found an incredible space right off of 8th & South Street for one his Lost Objects installations. The install is comprised of found, recycled objects that X-O gathers and then transforms into these striking, geometric assemblages.

We stopped them by one of our beloved Philly hang outs 'Tattooed Mom' for drinks - that morphed into them staying and adding to their mark to the walls of Mom's. Ever-changing art is the heart and soul of Mom's - a watering hole Mecca for street artists and writers.

It wasn't until the day they headed out of town that I stumbled across the final surprise. Amanda kissed this beige wall off South with her 'Pretty Baby' image.

It was a blast, we're looking forward to having them back.
