Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the word art can mean a thousand different things to a thousand different people. Last Friday, Brendan Scanlon, a 24-year-old neighbor of ours, a Chicago street artist known as 'SOLVE,' was stabbed to death while attending a party across the street from us; he had gotten into a silly argument with an acquaintance. We didn't know him by name, but the tall man would always stop and pet us when he walked by in the morning. We'll miss your gentle ways SOLVE. The above photo is not SOLVE's work, but you can see lots of his art in a flickr pool: SOLVE RIP.
