Participatory Budgeting Murals
1400 W. Chase Ave. (South Wall)
Monster Zoo features 5 unique creatures of the sea painted in a mesh of island-inspired Latin and Creole color tones and patterns. Tony Passero is a Chicago-born mixed media artist and muralist. His work is often executed in series or set formats as he explores themes through repetition. The majority of his artwork is centered on a unique mash-up of Latin, Creole and Tribal tones blended with a bit of a linear organic cubist and expressionist styles. His work often has a textured quality as a result of building up of layers from the various mediums he uses (ink, oil, acrylic, custom dyes, etc.) and the various devices he uses to apply the mediums. With each new theme undertaking, Passero makes a point of exploring different and new painting techniques to aesthetically complete and complement the theme of each project he engages.
