PHILADELPHIA - There's some new artwork inside Lincoln Financial Field and the artists behind the mural are from the Lehigh Valley.
"I do it for the city, I do it for the fans," said artist Justin Klement from Whitehall.
Justin Klement and Allentown native Kyle Edwards painted the giant Eagles wings that are now inside the stadium.
"It was a way through my artwork that I could connect to the game," said Klement.
"To be here and share a piece with the Linc, it means everything to me," said Edwards.
Klement had done some work for the Eagles years ago and when he got the request to paint the wings, it was a no-brainer for the two die-hard fans.
"I love Philadelphia and you know the fact that we're here, we're able to contribute means everything," said Edwards.
It started with stencils and ended with all kinds of green paint.
"We had paint brushes, we had cans, we had a new color of paint never released before, energy green," said Klement.
Working long hours to finish the wings before game day, the artists say seeing fellow fans snap photos in front of their creation was worth the sleepless nights.
"It's an incredible feeling, really hard to describe," said Edwards.
A feeling of accomplishment and pride helping Eagles fans fly higher than ever this season.
"Every day you have a chance to make a difference," said Klement.
