Ray Noland

Everyday I pass by this image of former Illinois governor, Rod Blagovich dressed in his black tracksuit in mid-run on Ashland Ave, just around the corner from my apartment. Besides appreciating its hilarity, I haven’t thought much about it or its creator until Newcity’s recent article about the artist responsible, Ray Noland.

The article explained Noland’s emergence as a known artist around the streets of Chicago from easily recognizable images of Obama during his election. His iconic images have caught my eye over the year without even knowing who he was. Noland is an artist that I respect and enjoy for his political stances and for his sense of humor.
