Front Line Heroes

Artist(s): Jessey Pacho (PHADE)

Producer: StreetARToronto

Completed: 2020

The concept celebrates Front Line Heroes during the global COVID-19 pandemic. A rainbow colour gradient celebrates diversity and layered graffiti art lettering names Frontline and Essential Services across the four societal pillars: Health Care Services, Transport Services, City/Community Service Providers, & The Arts Community. The typography specifically is a combination of graffiti handstyles and calligraphy. An original style of font, developed and honed over 18 years as an aerosol artist – Calligraffiti. Graffiti is specifically used to pay homage to the art form that paved the way for public murals and street art globally. Graffiti is one of the foundational elements of hip hop, a resilient subculture that has positively impacted and changed lives in countless urban communities.
