The Watts Towers are a collection of 17 interconnected sculptural structures, the tallest reaching a height of over 99 feet. The towers and walls were designed and built by Italian immigrant construction worker and tile mason Sabato (“Simon”) Rodia (1879-1965), over a period of 33 years, from 1921 to 1954. The work is an example of ‘outsider art’ vernacular architecture and Italian-American naïve art. #simonrodia #wattstowers #california #losangeles #visionary #visionaryart #outsiderart #art #sculpture #museum #philly #philadelphia #phillyart #phillymagicgardens #philadelphiasmagicgardens #mosaic #amazing #butterfly #isaiahzagar @phillymagicgardens @isaiahzagar (at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens)

KID HAZO PARODIES THOSE PESKY VISIT PHILLY POSTERS…

The Visit Philly campaign posters aren’t’ so bad - they just don’t always read as my version of Philly. If I didn’t look close enough, I’d think they’d finally gotten hipper and more in tuned to the city’s vibe. But I should haven known…that’s what’s so fun about Kid Hazo’s work, you really have to be observant to catch the joke.

Our favorite Philly Art Blogger & photographer was on the scene (as usual). He gave a really great breakdown of Hazo’s Dear Street Art Lovers Poster:

"In case you need a little help cracking the ‘Dear Street Art Lovers’ one: We got Tagged Up Elephants (Cornbread), Sticker Characters (The Sticky Bandits), Black and white paper cut outs (Joe Burochow), Yarn bombed stuff (Ishknits) , stick dudes (Stikman), Mythical Animal Murals (NoseGo), Braille Art (Sonia and Austin), Conspiracy Street tiles (Toynbee Tiles) AND Ben Franklin wheat paste stencily janws (Get Up Art).”

You can find these new installs around Chestnut Street between Broad and 18th. 

*Sweet thanks to Conrad Benner of StreetsDept for the pics. For more installation shots check out StreetsDept.com

DESIGN FIND: ANALOG WOOD & LEATHER WATCHES BY LORENZO BUFFA

Lorenzo Buffa, founder of the Analog Watch Co. has designed what we’re now referring to as a hipster trapping… how could it not be?  It’s got all the markings of things we self-confessed hipsters love about a design and its designer.

His Carpenter Collection features four timepieces each with a strikingly different combination of woods: Makore & Red Sanders, Silverheart & Maple, Teak and Bamboo and Leather & Blackwood. These androgynous timepieces are sleek and light in their seemingly impossible combination of wood & leather. Their flexible soft leather straps are covered in the wood veneers making for a clean seamless look – lets not forget to mention the watches are 90% biodegradable. No small feat, that is unless you hold a degree in Industrial Design from the University of The Arts in Philadelphia – which Buffa does.

But in all seriousness…we love it for its pull on a natural aesthetic. There’s no in your face branding, no clunky numbers on the face. It’s the kind of watch that garners attention for it’s simplicity & sustainability – that makes it that make it our must have accessory.

*Analog is running a Kickstarter campaign right now to help them manufacture the Carpenter Collection.  Last time I checked they’d reached their goal. But supporters still have a great opportunity to get one of first watches off the production line at a much cheaper cost than they’ll be retailing for later on. Plus, according to Buffa, the extra donations will go towards a higher quality package and the ability to start development on a new line.
