Greetings from… I’m sure you’ve all seen those vintage postcards with the name of the city spelled out in big bold letters. Greetings from Austin. Greetings from New York. Greetings from Oklahoma City. But have you ever seen a depiction as big as the Greetings From Chicago mural in Logan Square?

This Chicago wall mural was painted in May 2015 as part of The Greetings From Tour: a travel and art project by Victor Ving (a former graffiti artist from New York City) and photographer Lisa Beggs.

Together, the couple is traveling around the United States in an RV to create city specific murals based on the iconic “greetings From” postcard designs.

As of June 2018 the artists have completed 30 postcard murals in 15 different states, with plans to continually do more.

The Chicago Mural took four days to complete and the street art was created almost entirely using spray paint. While Ving painted most of the Greetings from Chicago wall, Amuse 126, a local Chicago artist, created the second “C” (an abstract piece depicting the crazy Chicago weather) after helping the couple source the canvas / wall at an old plumbing supply building along the Blue Line el tracks.
