Biography

Gregory Penrice (b. 1971, Chicago Il.), a first generation Chicago graffiti artist, has been discreetly stirring the Midwest street art scene since the 80’s. Through the discipline of line, color, value, and motion, Gregory’s efforts represent an evolved artistic sense that exceeds the expected boundaries of modern Graffiti art. Presently, Gregory can be found employing his take on contemporary muralism on the walls of Chicago Il.

Habitual sketching, casual colorization, serious lines. I love this stuff.
Native Chicagoan, still a Chicagoan, might just stay this way.
Playing in the streets as I grew, I grew to become familiar with them. I take my inspiration from these roads. I am saturated by the city and it shows in the art that makes it way down through the tips of my fingers.
