Twenty-something self-taught Chicago street artist Vicente Jasso has been widely recognised for his controversial artworks painted on the walls of Little Village and Pilsen. Though originally working in mixed media on canvas, he’s now graduated to bigger and more prolific works in public. His handiworks include Mexican revolutionary “Emiliano Zapata” as a rebel Jedi with a lightsabre, NARC agents shooting at Super Mario and Abraham Lincoln wearing a Dr Seuss hat. His stencil and wheat-pasted works,  said to be inspired by Banksy, Blek le Rat, and Picasso, depict his opinions on immigration, political corruption and gang violence in Europe and throughout the world. He’s not always the easiest artist to come across, but lately he’s been making headlines and there’s something about his mixture of cartoon and real life that portrays the message of how ridiculous and detached from reality a lot of the senseless murderers and greedy politicians of this world are, that opens an avenue for dialogue.
