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.
