Positioned underneath Philadelphia's Market/Frankford Line (better known locally as "The El"), these ten walls line the exterior of our Fishtown HQ between Oxford St. + Columbia Ave. Upon inheriting the space, we had planned to fill the walls with one large, sweeping mural. However, due to complications + other restrictions, we decided to shift the focus. We thought, "How can we utilize this space to feature multiple artists?" An open call mural project was idealized and an email address was created (FrontStreetWalls@gmail.com) + sprayed on the walls so passers by could submit their designs + ideas for review.
Ant Carver, the London-based artist was searching for locations to install some work while he was in the states. His design was submitted, approved and within a matter of three days, he + his team completed one of the most stunning murals we've ever seen.
