Red Bull Success

Last week the Red Bull Curates Chicago went off to a groove at the Chicago Urban Art Society. 100s of creatives, students, crews and friends came out to celebrate the contest. Maxing out the free open bar and chilling with free red bull cans. Amongst the velvet ropes, VIP rooms and jamming DJ- artists mingled and chatted with enthusiasm encouraging their friends to text on their cells and vote for the winner. As you may have heard- the 3 winners are going to Art Basel Miami with Scope Gallery to sell and promote work.

GOONS, Hebru Brantley, and Dont’t Fret were the well deserved winners. GEm69 and some of the other artists in this show like Dont’t Fret will be painting this weekend at Lollapalooza near the Perry. Should be fun!
