Show runs from March 4th to March 28th
Inkling, 2917 1/2 N. Broadway St., Chicago

About the artist:
Graffiti, street art, gallery shows, public installations… Spray paint, airbrush, stickers, paste-ups, wood-cuts… Chicago, Denver, Madison, Brazil… He’s done it all before, he’ll do it all again. He won’t ever stop. Funny little friend...s and scary little monsters live inside Nice-one’s imagination, and they beg to be released into the real world. What a privilege it is that we are allowed these glimpses into his colorful mind. He is brave enough to risk criticism from the public, risk disappointment of his peers, risk trouble with the law, and all for the simple goal of being continuously creative. Pushing limits, boundaries, and expectations. Reminding us that reality is little more than what we make of it, and how we perceive it. He’s smart, he’s creative, he’s talented, and yes, he’s even nice.

Chicago Art Magazine has been putting together a Top Ten list of Street Art each month for a while now. Seems there are mixed feelings in the S.A. community about the exposure this is bringing, and also the way in which it ise presented: ranking them, and also how they are collected as well.

Either way, it's interesting enough to pay attention to, at least in a peripheral way.
