In Motion: Digital DOES doing it in Chicago
Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood is a hotbed of trendy bars, restaurants and boutiques. The area is always buzzing and full of energy. It’s the kind of neighborhood where you might catch a fresh concert, a hot meal and a cold drink, all just within steps of one another. But on this day, the hood got a special treat from Dutch artist DOES (Love Letters).
DOES, who is one of the illest graff artists around, is currently in Chicago to support his solo art show Transition at The Maxwell Colette Gallery. While in the windy city, he decided to bless the wall in front of The Violet Hour Lounge with one of his dope burners which he knocked out during the hustle and bustle of Chi Town’s infamous rush hour, and within steps of one of its busiest intersections.
So, with an awesome style, a smooth flow and a vibrant color scheme, Digital DOES did his thing and masterfully added to the landscape of an already colorful Chicago neighborhood. For more from DOES and an inside look at Transition, check out our interview with the with the Dutch artist, and remember to visit Maxwell Colette Gallery to see the exhibition, on view until July 31.
