Two very ambitious muralists/graffiti artists that once ran the street art gallery Pawn Works have expanded to the great outdoors as consummate curators of public art. A profile in Chicago Magazine shows examples of newly commissioned work that diverge from the ethnic and political substance of traditional mural art. This newer work has sparked tensions with the old garde in places like Pilsen, where an army of young muralists is laying down paint, but is being embraced in other parts of town. Got a large blank wall? Let the Pawn Works guys know. [Chicago Mag, previously, photo: Pawn Works]
