The legendary Shepard Fairey and Obey crew and in Chicago this week for The Provocateurs art show, and they didn’t waste any time in getting to work to leave their mark on the city. According to Shepard:
“The crew and I arrived in Chicago three days ago to start painting my mural. My mural wall is a killer spot at Wabash and 9th on one of Columbia University’s buildings. There will be several other murals going up in the same corridor by artists from The Provocateurs show including POSE, RETNA, and Cleon Peterson.”
Though many of us have seen such Obey murals up in major cities like New York, Boston, and LA, it’s pretty dope to see how it all comes together. It’s safe to say that if you’re scared of heights, then this isn’t a job for you, holmes. Scroll through the photos and see the set up and catch Shepard and his team in the middle of the action.
