Item details

“Vandal Gummy Bear" by WhIsBe can be seen on the fourteenth floor of The Blackstone hotel in downtown Chicago and pays homage to the date October 17, 1931, when Al Capone was sentenced to prison.

The anonymous artist, whose name is short for What Is Beauty, creates prison mugshots in this series of the sweet and much-loved candy bear holding an identity card to spark discussion and get people to explore their preconceptions.

WhIsBe has established a formidable reputation in both the renegade world of street art but also the mainstream art world encompassing the museum, gallery and arena of public installations. Regardless of where he works, the artist remains anonymous. Art curation by NINE dot ARTS.
