Artist Hebru Brantley’s signature style merges popular culture influences of comic books, Japanese anime and street art aesthetics. In this series of eight drawings Brantley casts his original comic book-style characters, the Fly Boys & Girls, to celebrate the nearby Motor Row Landmark District. Once the nation’s largest concentration of automobile dealerships, Motor Row was also home to Chess records recording studio and The Chicago Defender newspaper.
Hebru Brantley, a native of Chicago’s Bronzeville community, is a Chicago-based artist.
