@ Chicago Truborn Gallery

1741 W Chicago Ave

Opening Saturday, June 18th, from 6PM - 10PM

On view through Sunday, July 24th

Featuring Lie / Lady Lucx

Two of Chicago’s most sought after and well respected painters have joined forces for the most highly anticipated show of the summer. Complete with
two in-store mural installations, a public piece from the duo, and both individual and collaborative pieces, “Rise and Shine” is slated to be a show which will resonate for years to come. Rise and Shine is more than just a wake up mantra. Deconstructed, the phrase itself alludes to a way of life…a
way of looking at the world head on and declaring ownership of ones experience. While “bad things” certainly do happen to “good”/all people, what separates the dreamers from the achievers is the reaction to said happenings. Rise and Shine is an homage to waking up every morning, persevering beyond adversity, and most of all, the dedication and commitment required to become a master of your craft; a master of yourself.


The opening reception is 21+
All ages are welcome after the initial opening- Tue-Fri: 12:30-7 Sat/Sun 2-6 pm

June 18th, 6-10p.m.

Lie (Jay Turner | b. 1982 | USA) is a Chicago Suburb born and based painter. After graduating
from The Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg, he was a package designer/illustrator for 3
years until he opened Paper Crown Gallery in Arlington Heights, IL (2011). Submersing
himself in the Chicago Street Art Scene, he became a student of urban art. Most of his work
includes spray paint, acrylic, pencil, and some non-traditional techniques, however his work
is ever changing as new inspirations and techniques unfold.

{LUX: one measured unit of illuminance} LADY LUcX has been sharing her life through
paintings and murals around Chicago, and the country, since 2010. Her mixed-media work
explores the ideas of, intuition, finding magic in everyday things, women who defy convention,
and the endless quest for balance in life. This is expressed with the heavy use of black
and white color, tight line work with loose drips and clear details with vague backdrops- all
uniting as one.

Thanks to the West Town Chamber of Commerce and the SSA funded Publics Arts Initiative,
the duo will paint approximately 1000 sq feet in West Town in accordance with their
show opening. Lie and Lucx are abstract painters who rarely produce sketches before creating
a mural. Their work is centered around their individual characters with abstract additions
custom created for each space. Free form, flowing, shapes and colors surround their
work creating an ora of mystique which can only be summoned by this epic duo!
