Fact: Philadelphia is the American city with the most graffiti and is where it began as an underground movement. How do I know this? Trivia. The main source of my random knowledge. [We got the question wrong, by the way]
It seems that first form of expression, probably on the sides of bridges or abandoned buildings, has branched out to people’s front doors, entryways, business storefronts- not even fire hydrants are free from a paint can. People take it upon themselves to plant flowers in the tree boxes along the streets. They want to enjoy, and be proud of, the place they live. I like it. Makes life a little more interesting, no?
Here are a few pictures I snapped one afternoon:
p.s.- expect to see many more posts of this fashion as I discover new street art 🙂
