ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Artist Rubén Aguirre has produced a number of murals in the Chicago land area and across the U.S. Aguirre's work is an intersection of abstract graffiti, design, and contemporary muralism.
Nate Otto is a drawer, painter, and image maker whose work is inspired and influenced by art brut, abstract expressionism, graphic design, comic art, geometric abstraction, and the onslaught of imagery that pours down on him from his perch in Chicago Illinois.
