Photo: Labrona and OverUnder Visit Chicago for "Art in Public Places"
Labrona and OverUnder teamed up in Chicago for Pawn Works Gallery’s project “Art in Public Places.” OverUnder painted “Division of Memory and Construction” in Pilsen, Labrona painted a mural on Chicago’s North Side, as well as branching out further from the project’s original neighborhood of Pilsen together to collaboratively and individually wheat paste a large amount of street work throughout Chicago’s rougher West Side neighborhoods. “Art in Public Places” has brought a lot of talent into Chicago, so be sure to review Reyes, ROA, and Gaia’s visits to the city if you missed them.
OverUnder said, “6 humid days, 7 pairs of socks, 8 gallons of paint, 9 -5in’, one day painting in only my boxers, 42 Old Styles, one deep dish pizza, two dips in Lake Michigan, 14 wheat pastes, 80 replays of 2 Chains Birthday Song, and one long ass mural. Nick Marzullo (who runs Pawn Works along with Seth in NYC) is the man! Someone get that guy a big ass high five. He took us to some of the best Italian Beef joints, greasy spoon diners, and spots. Yeah SPOTS! I love me some good spots.”
