Howell is a pretty cool city, but it’s about to become even cooler.
Acclaimed Chicago mural artist Sick Fisher (his real name is Nick, but he goes by “Sick”) announced on Facebook this week that he’s coming to Howell (his father’s hometown) in early summer to paint what he calls a “large mural.” The mural will reportedly be painted on the Heart of Howell building, 120 W. Grand River Ave.
No indication from Fisher yet on the subject of the mural, but if it’s anything like Fisher’s other works, it will be an eye-popping masterpiece.
His murals are seen all over the country, but particularly in the Chicago area and Los Angeles. His style is unmistakable and distinctive. His art has been described thusly: “His works typically feature dots and dashes on the borders, as well as a treatment of colors that makes the image almost appear to glow, allowing his work to be easily recognizable.”
Fisher grew up in Florida, but found his way to Chicago after graduation. Anywhere you walk in downtown Chicago, you’re likely to see one of his distinctive murals.
We can’t wait to see what he has planned for Howell. The mural project will be starting in a few weeks. For a complete look at Fisher’s mural work, click here.
