Day 3 of the Kenny Scharf mural in Philadelphia got off to an early start as looming gray clouds and the threat of rain hung over the day. By noon, he had completed two more of his dripping creatures, this time a long skinny red one and a shortened gray one. A break for lunch also left enough time for the rain to roll in, and roll in it did as heavy drops put a halt to the day’s progress, but not before Scharf could add an angry, sharp green creature to the mix. Once the downpour turned into a light spittle, it was time to put the finishing touches on the green, and move on to the start of an squash colored one, but after about half-completion, a soaked wall, thanks to more rain, really put a damper on things as it caused the day to end.
Special thank you to Mural Arts Program for letting us document the process and Montana and 33Third for providing the paint.
Check out day 3 below. And stay tuned for day 4.
