Best New Street Art in Chicago

This beauty appears in an alley on the west wall of the new Urban Outfitters on the southside Diversey, just steps West of Clark. Graffiti watchers will also note that the Blagojevich Jailhouse Rock pose in an alley across the street was VERY recently painted over. One might wonder if the new piece across the street is by the same artist in an attempt to stay on the block like he was Marlo Stanfield from the Wire?

Come to think of it that looks more like it was wheat pasted (or wallpapered) on. I should've looked closer on the way to the train this morning. Update coming tomorrow morning.
Update: It was pasted to the wall and not spray-painted.

  • The artist is being superficial by clowning superficiality next to a superficial clothing store.
