New Work by Kobra Pays Tribute To Vivian Maier in Chicago

World renowned Brazilian artist Kobra returned to Chicago Illinois this month.

Kobra last visited Chicago to create his acclaimed 10-story Muddy Waters mural as part of Big Walls 2016 – a mural festival facilitated by Columbia College and The Wabash Arts Corridor . Having come back to Chicago for the well-publicized mural dedication on June 8th, 2017, Kobra and the curatorial team revisited a discussion the group
had had during the festival about executing another piece using an image of the prolific, mid-century urban photographer, Vivian Maier. While Maier was largely unknown during her lifetime (1926-2009), but her work has captured the attention of the world after being discovered in 2008 spawning books, exhibitions, and a documentary film.
