Phila Street Art: 45th and Walnut




I found these two figures in a small alley between two buildings on 45th street near Walnut Street. This technique is called "wheatpasting." The medium is pen on paper and the art is stuck to the wall with wheatpaste; equal parts flour and water, heated until thick. It's a basic adhesive akin to wallpaper paste, often used in paper mache. Loves it.

Very cool. I like your street art pictures. I don't see any of that up here in rural New Hampshire!
