    Hebru Brantley

    Artist, Hebru Brand; Artist in Residence, CIW

    A Bronzeville native living and working in Chicago, Hebru explores personal and cultural memory in his art. Using tropes from his 1980s upbringing and characters of his own creation, Hebru uses a process akin to free-form journaling with paint, working on a variety of surfaces including walls, canvas and found objects. Often highlighting injustices and social issues in his narratives, Hebru’s playful aesthetic also explores the optimism and possibilities of youth.
