One day I was walking aimlessly throughout the South Street District in search of something new. Something more than a pizza shop, a cheese steak lair, or a place to purchase a fresh pair of kicks, you know, the usual thoughts that come to mind when one thinks of South Street, but during my weekly excursions, I discovered more than that.
Hidden on Fourth Street, just behind South Street was the Air Assassins' custom air brush studio. Honestly, I probably would have never thought to cross the threshold of this newly opened dwelling if it wasn't for the artist standing outside the shop creating a portrait of Michael Jackson on a white t-shirt.
Bryon 'Mutt' Wackwitz, one third of the Air Assassins, was putting the finishing touches on Mr. Jackson's slightly glistened jheri curled hair. As the crowd grew, surrounding the canvas, I became more intrigued then entered the studio.
The Air Assassins', Wackwitz, Nero, winner of South Street's Slam Down Arts & Crafts contest, and Kirk Dupuis opened the studio off the corners of Fourth and South Streets on tattoo row last Labor Day and specialize in more than just traditional air brushing.
