Art At TMoms: 2019 Highlights

We’re eternally thankful for the fantastic community of artists who make TMoms beautiful on a daily basis. In 2019 we celebrated 22 years of creative chaos as Philadelphia’s unoffically official Street Art Museum and home to an ever changing international collection of graffiti, wheatpaste, stencil, sticker and 3-D installation work. And beyond the daily dose of fresh new street art fun we’ve been lucky to work with many of these talented folx on art shows, pop ups, larger scale installations, limited edition tees, stickers, posters, postcards and more!

 

You can explore a brand new masterpiece every time you come to Mom’s. That sense of discovery is a heady thrill that we look forward to every day. In no particular order here’s a 12 of our 2019 art at Mom’s highlights.

 

TMoms Bike Rack: Art by Adam Crawford

 

ADAM CRAWFORD’S BIKE RACK MURAL

 

We’ve been wanting to work with Adam Crawford forever & we’re so stoked to have a chance to commission a piece of LITERAL street art from him. With the support of the South Street Headhouse District Adam’s bike rack mural out front greets everyone who rolls up here with an epic piece of his work. A companion piece at 9th and South was completed later in the year.

 

Shock Exchange: Art by Lowlvl

 

Fused Underground: Art by Michael E. Kelly

 

Most Known Unknown: Art by Barrett Capistran

 

The Color Collective

 

ARTIST CURATED SHOWS AND POP UPS

 

Celebrating Philadelphia’s incredibly talented creative community is at the heart of what we love to do. It’s been an amazing experience this year to work with so many great artists who are producing art show series that bring such diverse and gifted groups to the walls here. From our longest running series, Jerks Production’s Fused Underground to fresh new work from Noni Astro’s Color Collective & Corey Dank’s Most Known Unknown; from shows that celebrate the creative spirit while raising awareness and funds like Kyle Confer’s Art Heals and our very own Sarah Cowell’s Artists Against Gun Violence; from underground work from Lowlvl’s Shock Exchange and Patchwork Culture’s NSFW series, we’re honored to be a home to a hugely diverse and passionate group of artists.

 

Snack Attack: Art by Nathan Hurst

 

Call Me: Art by Lauren Cat West

 

Roach World: Art By Flesh Prince

 

THEMED ART SHOWS & POP UPS

 

Some of the most inventive shows of the past year have been art that shines a light on a specific part of culture through art. Lauren Cat West’s Call Me show transformed the upstairs into a House of Love complete with swan boat ride cars & giant old school cell phones. Nathan Hurst’s Snack Attack’s take on junk food gave us the munchies with cereal box art & an edible mountain of candy and tastykakes. Jerk’s Production’s Nightmares & Dreamscapes riffed on Stephen King’s writings for a surreal scare. Roach World & Gaudmother showcased the future of Philly fashion with hand crafted, upcycled and remixed clothing and hand painted fabric photo booths.

 

South Street Art Mart’s Nicole & Nicole at Spring Fest

 

SPRING FEST

Our friends at South Street Art Mart helped us kick off the warmer weather here by curating the TMoms big top art tent the annual South Street Spring Festival. We love sharing the work of local creators with the world and the festival gives us an opportunity to take it to the streets (literally). Neighborhood gem Art Mart showcased many of the artists they champion including Taped Off TV, Wicked Queer, The Machine Shop Rocks, Nite Owl Designs and more. It was a fun early spring day with our friends from Art Mart (plus 40,000 new pals who stopped by to check it out!).

TMOMS @ 22

 

TMom turned 22 (!) this May with a giant group show filled with thee most incredible art tributes from so many of our friends and family. Over 100 artists, including Air Rat, Jacci Stallone, An Ordinary Daze, Sawdust Eyes, Dark Meal, Creature Rhythm, Kelly Campanile, Cloud Apparatus and more contributed work inspired by their experiences here. We partied, ate cake, happy cried, toasted with tiki kitties, ugly cried, ate pierogi, happy ugly cried and felt very loved and inspired.

 

Sticky Art Machine: Art by Jayel

 

Sticky Art Machine: Art by Under Water Pirates

 

STICKY ART MACHINE

 

Volume 7 of our long running Sticky Art Machine series dropped this year and it was an epic release. Curated by Bob Will Reign, this run featured new exclusive work from the legendary Under Water Pirates & the wildly inventive Jayel. We debuted 10 new original limited edition designs from two of our long time sticker art heroes for our biggest release in Sticky Art Machine history.

STREETS DEPT ARTIST INTERVIEW SERIES

 

Partnering with Streets Dept, Philly’s premier street art blog, on the artist interview series has been a dream come true for us.

We capped off the season with Art Shop, a street art pop up featuring all 6 of this seasons artists plus some special Season One guests. We can’t wait for you to see the line up of artists for this year’s Season Three Interview Series.

 

TMoms Artist Edition Tee: Art by Rainy

 

 

ARTIST EDITION TEE BY RAINEY

 

The latest in our series of Artist Edition tees was designed by Rainey. The piece was originally part of our TMoms at 22 Anniversary show & their unique take on all the fun little details of Moms combined with snippets of timely social justice issues made it a perfect fit for the tee shirt artist series. It’s a great way to wear our 22 years of love and good times (literally) on our sleeve.

 

Characters Welcome 8: An International Sticker Art Show

 

 

CHARACTERS WELCOME 8

 

The eighth year of Characters Welcome, our annual international sticker art show was our biggest and best ever. With thousands of stickers from hundreds of artists all over the world, Characters Welcome 8 showcased both the deep history of sticker art and the future of the medium. From iconic sticker artists to first time contributors, the two day exhibition celebrated the art and community of stickers while raising over $4000 for youth arts programs at Fleisher’s Community Partnership in the Arts and The Village of Arts and Humanities.

 

TMoms Curated Art at Counter Culture

COUNTER CULTURE

 

We ventured out of our doors this year to curate the art at Counter Culture, a new event space on the block. The walls are a love letter to South Street with over 50 legendary artists contributing work that shines a light on Philly style and the street’s youth culture histoy . Lead artists NTEL, Septic & Lazy riffed with dozens of TMoms friends & fam to create a one of a kind space that inspires and invites creative conversation.

We mark the passing of each year and welcoming of the next by commissioning original work from a local artist for our New Year’s celebrations.

ART EVERY DAY

 

In addition to the great events and art shows we’re honored to host here, the daily additions to the space from countless artists create both a sense of artistic ownership and conversational community. We’re thankful to be able to open the doors every day and discover new work and develop new friendships with the folx that create it. From large installs by Bines, Marisa VR, Hysterical Men, Lace in the Moon, Symone Salib, Lowlvl, Lazy Beam & many more to countless smaller works from Blur Street Art, MPeachHim, City Kitty, Denied, Void Skulls, Phoebe NY, Melt, Who Do You Think and so many more, it’s always a thrill to find a new piece and share it in person here or with friends around the world through Instagram. We’d love to see YOU on the walls next, adding to the beautiful chaos, making magic and on the list of the next Art in Review highlights!

Streets Dept x Tattooed Mom Philly Street Art Interviews: Season 2 Recap

The Philly Street Art Interview Series is a flourishing collaboration between Philadelphia’s premiere street art blog, Streets Dept, and Philadelphia’s unofficial official street art museum, Tattooed Mom! Each month, Streets Dept Contributor Eric Dale sits down with one local street artist to ask them about their work. Through this interview series, we’ll uncover & discover the growing community of street artists getting up around Philly and on the walls of Tattooed Mom.

***

The first interview of Season 2 featured the enigmatic, fan favorite street artist, Kid Hazo! Most known for his street sign installations and tongue-in-cheek performative pieces, Hazo’s comedic street style amassed him over 10,000 followers on Instagram & partnerships with local arts organizations and community groups, including the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

You can read Kid Hazo’s full interview here.

***

Next up was Under Water Pirates, one of the OG Philadelphia sticker artists & a recent contributor to Tattooed Mom’s Sticky Art Machine Series. In his interview, UWP opened up about his experiences as a street artist living with chronic illness. Chronic pain is what brought him to sticker art in the first place, and even when the pain is slowing him down, creating sticker art helps keeps him afloat.

You can read Under Water Pirates full interview here.

***

Symone Salib only recently took her art to the streets, but quickly experienced a meteoric rise, including multiple gallery shows, partnered displays, and a Queer Eye street art scavenger hunt in collaboration with fellow Season 2 artist, Lace in the Moon. Using art as a form of therapy, Symone highlights the stories and voices of those who need to be heard, including the black and brown trans activists Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera (paired with a Lizzo quote), and a dual portrait of Anita Hill and Christine Blasey Ford, accompanied by a banner reading, simply, “believe us.”

You can read Symone Salib’s full interview here.

***

Old-school graffiti writer turned abstract muralist Seper was the fourth interviewee of Season 2! After a tumultuous upbringing in the world of graffiti  & multiple run-ins with authority, Seper quit cold turkey when he got his first job. Eleven years later, he returned to street art after his daughter reignited his creative spark. Nowadays, he works with local Philly schools to inspire children & teach them about spray paint, and his explosive murals can be spotted far and wide across Philadelphia.

You can read Seper’s full interview here.

***

The second to last interview of Season 2 was with Morg, the recently revived toilet street artist! Submerged in the history of Philly sticker art, Morg started out at a 14 years old, and despite a few prolonged periods of inactivity, he has always come back to his trademark anthropomorphic toilet. Regardless of his initial crudeness—”[k]ind of awesomely crude”—his career as a street artist is full of nuanced conversations and jokes about ownership, public space, and the larger street art community.

You can read Morg’s full interview here.

***

The final artist of Season 2 was Lace in the Moon, a crochet street and installation artist who pushes the limits of street art through her unconventional medium. Nicole had just started using the name Lace in the Moon when the crocheted Taylor Swift lyrics that she installed on the street blew up across social media. One year later, crocheting is her full time job & she has installed artwork at Fashion District, Philadelphia International Airport, a tiny town in Italy, and of course, Tattooed Mom.

You can read Lace in the Moon’s full interview here, and keep up with the rest of the series on the Streets Dept blog!

Rainey is a queer, poc, mixed media artist (& TMOMs t-shirt model) who lives in Philly. Her work explores nature, womxn and mental health through intricate drawings & brightly colored creations.

 

 

Her submission to TMOMs @ 22 was inspired by “the fun, creative atmosphere at Tattooed Mom, combined with important social issues.” Plus, “how could [she] miss an opportunity to put a message saying ‘Fuck Trump!’ on an illustration?” You can follow her on Instagram for more designs, collabs, and artsy connections!
