Street art can and should be fun, as Chicago’s own E. LEE has proven yet again. The artist has completed a quadriptych street piece for the exterior cornerstones of two restaurants bordering Soho House Chicago in the West Loop.  After taking on Superman, The Hulk, and Batman in recent pieces Lee has given life to who he calls “the consummate failure”, Wile E Coyote.

Lee says “It was a challenge creating a story-line using two corners with so much distance between them. But I was really happy to do this Wile E Coyote piece. The consummate failure is my favorite character of all time. I love him for knowing what he wants and going after it; for being creative in the pursuit; and for always getting up after he falls and trying again. He’s inspired… and a hell of a painter. A huge thank you to Soho House and Threadless for allowing me the opportunity.”

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.
