Graffiti writing brought "Golem" and "Poncho" together in high school. The 20-year-olds have transitioned more into street art, and Poncho recently developed a new character. It is a sort of self-portrait he has painted variations of around Chicago. In November, he brought his buddy to collaborate on a wall in the suburbs, and I tagged along to learn about the value they get from their art and to see how it's done.
