Slang-ism brightening up Wicker Park. This Chicago neighborhood is known for its eclectic shopping and eateries, but my thrill came from the abundance of street art.

We caught Slang finishing up a full wall mural next to the El tracks. He took a moment to explain his work to us. He predominantly uses cans. This mural also has a huge stamp painted in the corner in tribute to Trayvon Williams.

Slang has a successful gallery on Milwaukee Ave. and you can check out more of his artwork on his website www.slangism.com
