ART: 20th Anniversary Lollapalooza Poster By Hebru Brantley
Frolaborator Hebru Brantley has been commisioned by Lollapalooza to do the official artwork for this years
20th anniversary of the historic concert event in Chicago.
“To mark the 20th anniversary of Lollapalooza, we commissioned hometown artist Hebru Brantley to create an original work inspired by the festival and Chicago. A true celebration of the kinetic energy Lolla shares with its adopted city, the design features Hebru’s signature graffiti style and iconic Flyboy character, who, like the Tuskegee Airmen he is based on, hovers serenely above the frenzied and intertwined lives below.
Brantley’s original is mixed-media with acrylic and spray paint on 48 in. x 48 in. wood panel and has been faithfully reproduced in a series of three different limited-edition prints. As with all of our posters, these will not be re-issued once they are sold out. See below for a description of each edition.”
