Blur is a street artist and poet based in Philadelphia.
Her experiences with multiple chronic illnesses--including
Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), Chronic Lyme
Disease, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, and Cervical Dystonia--pushed her
to take full advantage of the artistic tendencies she previously
only explored in private. She wants her artwork to bring out the
vulnerability and empathy in everyone who views it and forge a
connection with her audience through that sense of catharsis.
In the first of a two-part series, Blur discusses how severe illness inspired her to make her art public, making the rebel inside of her to fight back against her obedient tendencies, and the dual aspects of her identity that being an anonymous artist has allowed her to appreciate.
