As Chicago's Hebru Brantley has made a transition from graffiti artist to painter, he's seen his profile rapidly rise. He's transformed his tagging days into works selling for upwards of $100,000 on the fine art market. And now, he's teamed up with Jordan Brand for a project that will see his work span the entire city.
The 'Flyboy,' (symbolizing the desire to soar to new heights) which is one of Brantley's most famous creations, has been given a very Chicago, and Jordan-based makeover. In the upcoming months, you'll be seeing the Flyboy pictured here, as well as others like it, start popping up throughout Chicago. It may be at a park, a school, or somewhere completely unexpected, so keep your eyes open, and be sure to share pictures whenever you spot one.
