The city of Philadelphia may be better known for many things – legendary cheesesteaks, the Rocky statue, the Liberty Bell, and not least being the birthplace of American Democracy.

But there’s more than that going on in the City of Brotherly Love.

The city has pioneered the idea of public art.

More than any other city in the world Philadelphia boasts over 4,000 colourful wall murals, transforming the neighbourhoods into colourful and vibrant outdoor art galleries.
