The picture is titled Pebbles and was painted last year in my hometown by Swedish artist Andreas Englund. Andreas Englund, based in Stockholm, is mostly recognized for the realistic and humorous oil paintings depicting the everyday life of an anonymous superhero. The series ranges from the superhero’s first mission as a toddler to being an old man, still struggling with everyday trivialities. I feel very fortunate to have one of these murals in my town because he has painted this specific character all over the world. In addition to his website, which I linked above, you can also follow him on Instagram. Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil
One of the new murals brightening my city as part of the 2015 Wall Therapy mural festival. Also, follow me on Twitter this afternoon and tomorrow to watch my live Periscope videos from The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this afternoon and the Alternative Press Music Awards tonight! Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil
This is a brand new mural titled Bollywood Sugar that was just completed last week in Rochester, N.Y. by the Dutch artist HandieDan. This mural kicks off the annual Wall Therapy Festival my city has every year during which 15-20 artists from all over the world descend on our city for a few weeks and then leave it an infinitely more beautiful place.
This is another of the great murals you can find all over my city. This one was painted by artist Caitlin Yarsky last summer for the annual Wall Therapy festival. For those of you that commented on my Top Ten post yesterday, I apologize that my responses were infrequent or non-existent. I was very busy with my day job. Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil
Another of the incredible murals that are all over my city thanks to our annual Wall Therapy festival. It was created by Elicser Elliot. I just ran across this one yesterday. It’s so much fun to turn a corner and find something completely unexpected. It’s like an Easter egg hunt I didn’t know I was a part of. One small paragraph is about as wordless as I get. Have a great Wednesday! ~Phil
