Bored hit the city of Chicago with some really innovative street art in the summer of 2012 that pretty much put the anonymous artist on the “must see” list of up and comers. His public installations mostly revolved around an interesting spin on the popular board game Monopoly, with stacks of plywood Chance cards bolted to the sidewalks and foot-tall little green plastic houses and dice in interesting locations, as well as painting sidewalks to look like property cards. His quirky approach is a direct reply to the lack of three-dimensional art in the greater Chicago area, since the city is mostly overrun by two-dimension-driven graffiti artists.
Since these installations were created, many people have now painted over the cards with fresh, and often hilarious content. If you’re lucky enough to live in or visit Chicago, they’re well worth hunting down to have a look-see.
