Vida Simple - Public Mosaics

Creator not accepting inquiries

Mexican-born artist Juan Angel Chávez created “Vida Simple" (mixed media mosaic; 2004) for the Damen subway station in Chicago.

Inspired by the surrounding neighborhood, this multimedia mosaic focuses on the individuality of the people that created the heritage and cultural identity of the community. The design itself is a collage of imagery taken from the neighborhood, including community member portraits, local street scenes and industrial wildlife--birds, small animals and plants that reside and grow in the industrial landscape.
