Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers!
What can I do with wheat paste art?
In Philly and other cities worldwide, wheat paste art is popularly used to raise awareness about important social and environmental issues, market products and services, and promote art in public spaces. Whether you’re a band trying to draw a crowd, an organization trying to rally support around a cause, or you simply want to decorate your neighborhood with beautiful colors and messaging, there is very little you can’t do with wheat paste art.
Where can I hang wheat paste art?
Wheat paste art is a gel or liquid adhesive comprised of wheat flour, starch, and water. It is temporary and bio-degradable, so you can hang it pretty much anywhere: brick walls, freeway overpasses, abandoned billboards…the sky’s the limit!
Is wheat paste art vandalism?
Wheat paste art isn’t permanent, so even if you hang it without permission, it probably won’t be considered vandalism…but that’s a hard probably. Don’t worry: our agency can help you find places to hang your wheat paste art where it won’t get taken down (and you won’t get into legal trouble)!

How long does wheat paste art last?
It can last anywhere from a few days to several months. It has a lot to do with where it is placed, how the weather behaves, and other variables that are usually beyond the artist’s control.
Are there ways to protect wheat paste from the elements?
Some precautions can be taken to make wheat paste last as long as possible. For example, placing the wheat paste on a wall that can’t be reached by bad weather will naturally improve its lifespan. But remember: wheat paste is meant to be enjoyed in the moment. If you’re looking for something more permanent, consider our mural painting services.
