Wat je gaat doen

Immerse yourself in Philadelphia's unique sticker art scene via a 1.5-hour walking tour through the beautiful Queen Village neighborhood! You'll learn about the origins and traditions of the sticker art culture and see a variety of hand-drawn stickers by Philly artists.

By definition, street art is ephemeral, so there's always an element of improvisation to my tours! But I know all the spots along our route where art tends to accumulate. I'll guide you through a mix of street art hot spots and permanent or semi-permanent installations, interpreting everything we see along the way. The focus will be on stickers, but we'll also see murals, wheatpastes, installations, and graffiti, which all have overlaps with the world of sticker art.

This tour covers a lot of art in a small geographic area, and there isn't time to talk in depth about everything, so I will be happy to tailor our stops to your specific street art interests!

We'll conclude our walk in front of Tattooed Mom, Philadelphia's unofficial museum of street art! You're welcome to go in and explore on your own; just know that this location is 21+ in the evenings.
Other things to note
• The total walking distance is approximately one mile.
• Unfortunately, Philly sidewalks tend to be uneven, so I would not recommend this experience for those who require the assistance of a wheelchair, walker, cane, etc.

Ever since I first saw a sticker on the back of a street sign, I’ve been completely fascinated by Philadelphia's street art. I began photographing it in 2015, and quickly came to appreciate the amazing diversity and traditions of Philly street artists. In 2017, I become a content contributor to StreetsDept.com (a popular Philly blog about art in the public space) where I now have a monthly interview series that explores why and how street artists create their work. Come join me in discovering Philly’s character-driven, hand-drawn, cut-out sticker tradition (plus a bunch of other street art). I'll show you a ton of fresh artwork and tell you the stories behind it!

Waar je naartoe gaat

We'll meet at 4th & Fulton Streets. After checking out a cluster of stickers, a mural, and a unique installation nearby, we'll wind our way through Philadelphia's historic Fabric Row, exploring yarnbombs, wheatpastes, and a hidden alcove full of mosaics and graffiti. Along the way, I'll point out and discuss tons of street art new and old. The tour will end at Tattooed Mom—the official street art museum of Philly!

If you’re into visual art, sticker art, street art, graffiti art or mural art, you will absolutely love this experience. Eric was very knowledgeable and interested in answering questions and sharing the history of the sticker art and artists in Philadelphia. I am definitely going to recommend this to my friends.

This was a really interesting crash course in the history of graffiti, murals, sticker art, and street art in Philly. The depth of knowledge, passion, and enthusiasm made strolling in the rain worth it. I highly recommend for travellers or locals alike!

It was a very interesting tour. I didn't know about the rich history behind the street art like murals and stickers in Philly. Eric was very friendly and showed us some of the best street art in the city. He described the background and some cool stories about the artists and the art installations. My personal favorite was the the yarn bombs. It was beautiful. Now everytime I go around the city and see some street art, I take a step back and a second look - and I have Eric to thank for it!

This tour was so "Philly" and exactly what I wanted to see. I've lived here for a long time but never stopped to think about all of the true art that surrounded me. Eric delved deep into this art. He knew intricate details about the artists. Eric has interviewed, tracked down and talked to some of the artists personally which was awesome to hear about. Truly interesting and worth it big time, I've found a couple other works around the city since the tour.. and I know the artist who created them now!! Eric knows his city and the art that lies within, you won't be disappointed to check it out.. I promise you.

I have spent my entire life in Philly and walked around this location many times but I felt like this was all new. I did not know much about street or sticker art and found it fascinating. I'm now familiar with some of the artists and will definitely keep my eyes open next time I take a walk in various places. Eric was so knowledgable and his enthusiasm was contagious. Our tour group had fun learning together and have a new appreciation for all the outdoor art work.
