Taka Cooper is a classmate of mine from the Illinois Institute of Art’s Illustration and design program. My classmates and I all really admire his work and have nothing but high hopes for him. He’s excellent at tattooing as well. So if you want to follow an up and coming Illinois artist, check him out! I promise his work will blow your mind, like it does mine.
I spoke with this artist briefly in my time working at Paper Crown. I adore his stencil art style street art paintings. If you are in the Chicago land area, you should check out his work.
Check out his Facebook page for upcoming shows and updates on his art!
Hey everyone! I just wanted to give you all a heads up about an awesome gallery in the suburbs of Chicago, called Paper Crown Gallery, run by my mentors Dennis, Jay and Jeff.
It’s an awesome street art and graffiti gallery in Arlington Heights, IL. I enjoyed the time I spent working for them last summer, and I think it’s a wonderful addition to the suburbs of Chicago. If you are an artist looking to sell your work? Contact them! If you want to buy a piece of art or get a commission, contact them! They do so much, and are all so talented.
Support the local arts by visiting and purchasing from Paper Crown Gallery!
