Ben Eine has been in Chicago this past week to open his show, “The Great Western” with Sickboy and Word To Mother. While in town he’s been busy, getting up a giant mural in the city’s Wabash Arts Corridor’ while also finding time to do a few shutters.
For the massive mural on East Congress Street Eine chose “HARMONY”, which is fitting as the show opened the same weekend as the Lollapalooza music festival.

About Josh Reich

My introduction to art and street art was mostly through album artwork. I was drawn to Futura 2000 (via UNKLE), Steve “Espo” Powers (Tommy Guerro), Paul Insect (DJ Shadow), and Bansky (Blur) before I even knew what street art was. Spray paint is banned in my home town of Chicago, so the internet became my portal to the world as I leaned about amazing artists creating on walls all around the globe. My day job is in music, but I continue to have a strong passion and respect for artists of all mediums.
