Philadelphia is home to hundreds of murals throughout the city, but one local masked artist is showing his creativity by using props and signs to send a positive message. Street artist Kid Hazo is changing the way we see art in Philadelphia.

“Kid Hazo is Kid Hazo. You don’t know exactly who I am and I'm not going to reveal it anytime soon. Kid Hazo is street art name and that’s the persona,” Kid Hazo said.

Kid Hazo is known for his props and signs spreading humor and positive messages. Like this one with the the selfie zone, watch where you hover board and he even gave the Philadelphia parking authority its own big ticket.

“I kind of take pop culture and stuff that comes from the Internet that I make into real life and have fun with that,” Hazo said.

Kid Hazo was just recently named “Best Philadelphian's of 2015” by Philly Magazine.

“I feel like there is so much bad news as far as Philadelphia is concerned. I try to make a twist on it and try to have fun. So that people know that there are more positive things in Philadelphia,” Hazo said.
