    MONSTER BOX

    Chicago graffiti artist TEWZ ONE andIKIL joined forces recently to capture and modify the free plastic publication
    boxes you normally see on street corners and in front of train stations.
    [​IMG]
    The project dubbed "MONSTER BOX" took over 1 month to complete and culminated in the release of 15 altered
    "MONSTER" boxes placed and locked at key locations throughout Chicago including: The Art Institue, Millenium
    Park, Cultural Center, Museum of Contemporary Art, Wicker Park, Pilsen etc...

    [​IMG]
    The boxes were unveiled last Thursday night somewhere between 2-5 a.m. Some of them had mysteriously
    dissappeared somewhere between 9-11 a.m. Friday morning. Many are still chillin.

    The Fish went to Navy Pier. Security approached us while we were placing it at 4 a.m. I told him it was for a scavenger

    hunt sponsered by the city. He bought it.

    Same goes for the bunny, which sucked cuz it wouldve been a great shot with all the tulips.

    The bird met the same fate at the cultural center.
