Springbok

Ricky Lee Gordon aka Freddy Sam is now in Philadelphia, PA bringing his South African energy to the Kensington neighborhood. Painted in collaboration with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program along with local arts education students, this mural on the side of the 161 West creative space is beautiful. Highlighting the natural environment of the plains of South Africa with a grazing springbok along with the inclusion of patterns much like those find in native clothing the mural makes for a refreshing addition to the streets. Be sure to check out more photos of the wall and progress shots here on 161 West's page.
