The Heart of Howell building will soon be a very large canvas for the 2019 Howell Art Project! Through our sponsorship of this event, and willingness to think outside the box, we are excited to announce that we will be showcasing a mural by the artist SICK FISHER. Stay tuned and join us downtown next week as we celebrate art and how it can enrich our downtown landscape!
SICK FISHER BIO
SICK FISHER was born Joseph Nicholas Fisher in 1985 in Weymouth, Massachusetts but raised in Sebastian, Florida. After graduating from The Florida State University in 2008, Fisher moved to Chicago in 2009 to continue his work as an artist. Fisher works in large scale murals as well as on a variety of smaller surfaces that include canvas, paper, wood, plastic, metal, brick, and glass. Based in Humboldt Park, most of Sick Fisher’s work can be seen on California Ave as well as up and down Milwaukee Ave in Logan Square. Other neighborhoods with Fisher’s public work are Rogers Park, Lakeview, Evanston, Downtown, and West Loop. In addition to his commercial endeavors, Fisher’s true passion is upgrading neglected spaces such as abandoned storefronts and walls with site-specific murals or designs.
