My good friends at Pawn Works have joined forces with Maxwell Colette Gallery  to bring internationally lauded contemporary artists to Chicago, who are known for their involvement in the Street Art movement.  The first of these joint ventures, GAIA: Resplendent Semblance, launches this month with a series of projects showcasing the artist Gaia.  The events will include a show of new, large scale paintings and decollage on wood art works at Maxwell Colette Gallery, a site specific installation and show featuring additional pieces at the Pawn Works space and a massive window installation at State Street and Adams presented in conjunction with The Chicago Loop Alliance.  Visit Maxwell Colette Gallery on Friday, March 25th from 6 – 9 pm.  The artist will be in attendance.

Here is a video of Gaia doing his thang.

Here are a few photos I took of the installation at the Pawn Works Gallery.  For more info, visit
