Wordless Wednesdays are back! Let’s be honest. I live in the northeast. Who wants to go out snapping pictures in the bleak, cold of winter? Each year my city hosts a mural festival. The picture above,titled Detecting Machine, was painted by the artists Nevercrew, which is Christian Rebecchi and Pablo Togni.
This is an incredible new mural painted recently in my city by Australian artist Vexta. She gets a super hero name and travels the world painting stuff like this. How cool is that?

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 one is four stories high and I think it’s pretty awesome. Up close it’s impressive and I did take a picture, but my camera phone doesn’t do it justice. It was done by artist Addison Karl last August. It reminds me of that old Maxell commercial with this guy:
