It’s always fun to check in on Chicago based artist E. LEE to see what he’s got up his sleeve, and his latest piece is a stunner! E. has “worked with” the dastardly Wile E Coyote before (https://streetartnews.net/2017/06/e-lees-entices-us-with-free-bird-seed-in-chicago.html) but this latest wall on Chicago’s Five Star Bar takes things to another level.
E. LEE tells us “I love Wile E Coyote. And I’m sure most people trying to make a living in a creative field see a little of themselves in him. I think it’s important that we find humor in our plight of constantly having to create, optimistically making plans and then seeing those plans rarely work the way we’d hoped.
I tried to incorporate as much of the existing wall as possible into the mural: using the brick as a major element in the piece, and the ‘please back in’ sign they had on the wall I made into a sign in the scene.”
Good luck Wile E, you’ll get that Road Runner one of these days. Beep beep!
