Chicago postcard mural painted inside the popular arcade bar, Emporium Chicago! We had the opportunity to paint a mural in collaboration with the Greetings Tour in Chicago, IL. Firstly, the concept was a 24 x 10 foot mural in a large letter postcard style design. Secondly, we filled the letters with different elements of the bar and vintage arcade games. Thirdly, we gave the piece an 8-bit feel although it wasn’t easy to paint pixelated imagery using spray paint.
The location of the bar is actually just down the block from the popular Greetings from Chicago mural painted by the same mural artists. Our Chicago postcard mural is a great idea for social media photo opportunities. In addition, Guests and visitors love to show where they are and the mural is a perfect way to do that.
Check out some photos of the installation below. Next time you are in Chicago and looking to grab a drink, you can check out the mural at 2363 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60647. This bar always hosts fun themed parties and events so keep an eye out on their calendar.
Update: The Netflix show Easy recently used this Chicago Postcard mural as a backdrop.
