Brazilian artist Cranio (also known as Fabio de Oliveira Parnaiba) has been busy in Chicago!

While in town to celebrate the opening of his solo show “Jungle” at Vertical Gallery he’s put up a handful of colorful murals featuring his trademark blue Indian characters.

Cranio – Berwyn Public Art at Lavergne’s Tavern

The above mural is part of the Berwyn neighborhood’s new Public Art Initiative.

The Berwyn Public Art Initiative has launched as an initiative to use public art to transform Berwyn’s Depot District into a dynamic center of creativity. They’re focusing on installing murals along walls lining Stanley & Windsor streets

About Josh Reich

My introduction to art & 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.
