Was that a patch of painted over graffiti I saw on the wonderful painting on the side of the Valley Plumbing warehouse on Peters St.? I sure hope not. I know there is a paint that can be used to keep graffiti from being permanent. Graffiti makes me so angry.

What paint is that? There are graffiti blockers that cover tags (Pigmented shellac) but have never heard of anything that makes a surface impervious to paint.

Thank you for your concern. Rest assured, the mural is fine it's just not completed and the artists will be using a product to protect it from graffiti. So keep watching... the mural is only getting better with more surprises before it is done!

Philidelphia Mural Arts uses a product called TSW4 Acri-Master to protect their murals. I think it's available at Kelly Moore and/or Sherwin-Williams. That should work!

The mural along the valley plumbing building is extraordinary and classic! What a great scene to sit and explore. Every time I see it, I notice something I didn't catch before. It's unfortunate that something similar wasn't done on Strizzi's wall, along the main strip.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
