Reyes 78 in Chicago

Posted on August 9, 2012

San Francisco painter Reyes 78 must have been exceedingly happy to be in Chicago with many of his fellow Mexican ex-pats and to bring his abstract graffiti-influenced new work to this city to display on a huge wall.  The folks at Pawn Works Gallery invited Reyes 78 to participate on their ongoing outdoor project “Art in Public Places” at the Pilsen neighborhood.

The project continues to bring new artists in conjunction with the Mexican Museum of Fine Art and The Chicago Urban Art Society, and this one illustrates the cultural melting pot as well as one of the newer directions that art in the streets is taking where graffiti and Street Art are merging to created something more abstract and geometric.
