This is Overkill Studio located in the heart of Old City Philadelphia. Overkill is a 2,700 square foot shared studio started in 2010 by me, a “painter,” and artist/photographer Dan King. The size of the space has functioned as a powerful tool for me to think big/go big. The space itself is bright, with a big front window and huge 16 ft. skylight in the middle.

I have had several studio spaces in the past and I think what makes this one really effective and efficient, simply put, is the “vibe.” I have felt extremely comfortable in here since day one, and looking back now I realize how much easier it is to work when you enjoy your surroundings.
