CHICAGO'S OWN "HEBRU BRANTLEY" NAMED #1 INFLUENTIAL ARTISTS OF 2013 (ART)
This 31-year-old Chicago-based man is one of the most buzzed about artists of 2013. His style derives from graffiti-lad buildings and sneaker-hung telephone poles honoring memories of local legends. He made his debut back in December, when rap superstar Jay Z spent $20,000 on one of his pieces at Art Basel. Again, Jay-Z… $20,000… one piece. This man is a Gen-Y legend.
