Specter Under a Bridge in Chicago

Posted on November 27, 2012

Street Artist Specter stuffed himself with Turkey and hit up a wall under a bridge in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago last week to help Pawn Works with their ongoing project. You would think these guys would take a break for the holiday, but at least the weather was cold and bleak and depressing, so that was a plus. Truth is, Specter is an imaginative twister of perception; a thinking artist who likes to experiment with pre-definitions of art and messaging, so it can be rewarding to spend a day watching him work.

“The weather during a Chicago winter is not ideal outdoor working weather,” reports Seth, but says they were thrilled to work with Specter on the Thanksgiving Day holiday anyway. “Layered up, with gloves gripping brushes and scarf over his face Specter was hard at work this past weekend as people buzzed by and even a little snow began to come down lightly,” he says of the new piece done in conjunction with Art in Public Places.

And we send a shout out to Alderman Danny Solis, who is the main force behind the project, helping many of the artists procure space to create their work.
