These days, seems like anyone with a Sharpie and a stack of stickers can claim to be a street artist.
What’s become of the old-school aerosol artist (and we don’t mean your tanning lady) who braved building tops and overpasses with backpacks full of paint cans and a fanatical assortment of spray caps?
They’re at graffiti mecca Rarebreed, opening its new music/paint/T-shirt boutique off South Street this Saturday. Stop by and snag some tees by Plan and spray paint, and pick from Rarebreed’s selection of records and CDs to create a soundtrack for your urban art extravaganza.
The cleaner, whiter, brighter walls also double as an art gallery; the opening show, up through July 10, features the work of Philly’s own A.I.D.S. (And It Don’t Stop) crew.
So anyone concerned that old-style street art was a thing of the past can rest assured …
The writing is definitely on the wall.
