Since the debut of North Coast Music Festival in 2010, it has kept the homegrown, Chicago-bred vibe every year and does its best to keep it that way by teaming up with art collectives Ava Grey Designs (Creative Agency/Production House) + The Elder Tree. This creates a space that is part Living Art Gallery and part homage to the history of street art. With our obvious love of all things hip hop, it seemed like a natural fit for North Coast and all of its attendees. The artists we have this year are from all over the country and further representing how NCMF’s growing reputation throughout the country.
Artists from all over the world have painted the walls at North Coast, which now hang in art galleries and museums across Chicago.
This year CZR PRZ, Luke Sequeira and Nick Glazebrook of Ava Grey Designs + The Elder Tree have put together a lineup of painters that is a unique mix of styles:
