Chicago Murals
Chicago has a lot of public art including murals. Yet there is little room for murals in Downtown Chicago. But I have found three beautiful examples for you.

Picture 1: Muddy, by Kobra
The Brazilian street artist Eduardo Kobra conquers the world. Brenda posted recently a photo of his work "Tolerance" in NewYork with the portraits of Mother Teresa, and Mahatma Gandhi.
I myself have posted longer ago his wall painting in Amsterdam "Anne Frank"
Kobra has a distinctly recognizable style. He uses different colour areas within the portraits are clearly visible and recognizable.
For the work in Chicago he was commissioned by the Columbia College. He chose Muddy Waters because of Muddy's long lasting artistic effect on Chicago and the world.
The 10-story high mural is located close to Washington St and State St..

Picture 2: Four Banners, by Candida Alvarez This artwork is part of New Public Art on the Chicago Riverwalk. Colourful banners made by local artist Candida Alvarez. They are mixed-media paintings that combine abstract and figurative elements in compositions infused with pop-cultural references. Alvarez teaches painting and drawing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Picture 3: Cirque du Soleil, Luzia . This mural can be found on the facade of the Columbia Collage Chicago on the corner of Ida B. Wells Drive (formerly, Congress Parkway) and S Holden Ct. (coordinates 41.875614, -87.626865) and was commissioned by Cirque du Soleil and inspired by cirque's new show "Luzia,"
