Philly is pretty darned pleased with its new Shepard Fairey mural.  It’s like a Obey Giant jumbotron in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia. It’s called ‘Lotus Diamond’ and it’s Fairy’s first large-scale mural in Philadelphia – thanks in part to the workings of Mural Arts.

It was a fun three days watching Fairey and his team work away and still take time to greet the crowd and sign autographs. According to Fairey this is the first of three murals that will go up in Philly overtime.
