    Xmas Graffiti Production

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     tselone, a father and artist, has been painting graffiti art in Chicago for 29 years. He said the owners of the fence allow him to paint murals because 'we always paint murals that cater to the community.' (The next one he has planned is Lego-inspired.) He and three other artists took about 40 hours to paint this Christmas display, completing it on December 23. 'Thousands of cars pass by this wall every single day and when we paint, people are always honking and telling us we are doing a great job. We even get support from the Chicago Police Department.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    I sometimes paint graffiti art on a wooden fence in my Chicago neighborhood. The last production was a Halloween theme piece.

    I decided to remove the Halloween production and create a Christmas theme graffiti style mural.

    I made a few calls and had some of the neighborhood graffiti artists come out and assist in painting.

    Thank you to JESK, OPIK and EDGE for painting something that the whole community can enjoy.

    Happy Holidays from TSEL
