This midweight, crewneck sweatshirt designed by Chicago artist Hebru Brantley is true to size. Standard fit; features 1x1 ribbing at collar, cuffs and waistband. In grey. Machine wash cold.

Majorly influenced by the South Side of Chicago’s Afro Cobra movement in the 1960s and 70s, Hebru Brantley uses the lineage of mural and graffiti work as a frame to explore his inquiries. Brantley applies a plethora of mediums from oil, acrylic, watercolor and spray paint to non-traditional mediums such as coffee and tea. Brantley’s work challenges the traditional view of the hero or protagonist. His work insists on a contemporary and distinct narrative that shapes and impacts the viewer’s gaze. Recognized nationally for public works and solo shows in Chicago, Brantley has exhibited worldwide and collaborated with brands like Nike, Hublot and Adidas.
All proceeds from the MCA Store support the exhibitions and programs of the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
