BLM painting by daniel wilson, Clifton Avenue Street Art, Chicago IL

Clifton Avenue in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago became the location of paintings by local artists during the summer of 2020 when Black Lives Matter marches took place throughout the city. Artists sought to support unity and diversity in the city by continuing to add work to the street in the Fall. This tryptic of paintings by artist daniel wilson portray two images of young, strong black women positioned like icons under three fists, one red, one black and one brown with the unifying letters BLM for Black Lives Matter at the top.
