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.
This is a great video done by Andrew Telling on Word To Mother from his time at Fame Festival 2010, where the British artist goes about the town of Grottaglie, Italy and paints the town, er, turquoise. We like to check on Word from time to time, as he showed at FIFTY24SF Gallery years back, and painted on our garbage cans; we see his name every morning whilst walking to work.
We had a fun time when Word To Mother was showing at FIFTY24SF Gallery. We like his attitude, a good dude. The English street and fine artist has a show at Stolenspace in London this October, titled Blind By Stardom. We feel the same way sometimes.
The show will be October 8—24. More soon.
Remember this cool video we did with Word to Mother?
Good friend of FIFTY24SF Gallery, Word To Mother, has this mural worked out at FAME in Italy. Nice work… he tagged the crap out of our UP garbage cans when he showed here, so we have a special place in our heart for him.
