Graffiti and Graphic Design

Peter Chavez was a Pilsen graffiti kid. He wrote on walls, buildings, and train cars. One of those pieces of "vandalism" won him a scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago. Now his writing/painting/design is more likely to be in an ad or a t-shirt than a viaduct.

This interview was recorded in a cafe and you will hear that in the background.
