Chicago based street artist TipToe showed up on the New York scene a year or so ago as a kid in a ferocious werewolf headpiece. Inspired by ideas of Greek serial killers in wolf's hides as well as Allen Ginsburg's lunatic friends howling at the moon, the woodcut prints appeared like rugged anti-heroic talismans from another epic era.

Belgium-based artist, ROA, continues his North America wall-conquering endeavor with another large mural in Chicago.

Graffiti // Friday, May 27, 2011
Chi-town’s lengthy history of gang activity goes back to Italian bootlegging industry and Al Capone. Eventually, as most gangs operate, territory has to be marked. Gang graffiti informs other gangs where they are trespassing and occasionally it has some genuine artistic merit.

The comfortable solitude of Chicago's brick and mortar shyly mocks the dawn rising over New York City. Matthew Hamilton Woodson is as succeeded a man as I've ever almost met. An illustrator, musician and enthusiast, he knows himself well, and you know its going to be a long night.
