Of the Trade: Muralists, The Chroma Dolls

By | on January 16, 2015 | 0 Comment

Of the Trade is an exciting video series by our friend, videographer Andrew Gormley. You might recall Andrew from his past work doing the former Philly Geek Awards videos for 2012 and 2013, all of the cute videos in the Geek’s Guide to Dating Web Series and his great CreativeMornings Philadelphia pitch, among many, many, many other things.

This is the latest episode of his series, Of the Trade. Each short episode will feature some of the amazing creative professionals in Philadelphia. In this episode he features the Chroma Dolls, exceptionally talented local muralists, Ali Williams and Kala Hagopian.

Chroma Dolls, Ali Williams and Kala Hagopian, are a fine art and mural collective. You’ve no doubt seen their work both in and outside of the city as they’ve been both painting and assisting on murals since 2006. I had the chance to visit them in their Kensington studio several times and even accompanied them to Stroudsburg to watch the mural installation process. We then sat down to discuss how they started, the types of projects they like to work on, and why they love working for themselves.

We’ll be syndicating Andrew’s videos as they’re available.

Know of some great local, creative professionals that you think Andrew should interview? Be sure to let him know.
