A Giant Mural of Robin Williams Goes Up in Chicago

If you find your­self near Logan Square, off of Mil­wau­kee Avenue, in Chica­go, take a moment to explore the new mur­al cel­e­brat­ing the life and art of Robin Williams. Accord­ing to Time­Out Chica­go, “The expan­sive mur­al is the work of New York street artist Jerk­face and New Zealand artist Owen Dip­pie…  Jerk­face is known for his sub­ver­sive depic­tions of ani­mat­ed pop-cul­ture char­ac­ters, while Dip­pie spe­cial­izes in hyper-detailed por­traits.” This Chica­go mur­al comes right on the heels of anoth­er mur­al paint­ed on Mar­ket Street in San Fran­cis­co. It’s by Argen­tine artist Andres Igle­sias, aka Cobre. Catch a glimpse here.
