Brendan Scanlon, also known as SOLVE, was murdered last night in Logan Square. Although the Sun Times reports that there is a suspect in custody, no charges have been filed. SOLVE was a core member of the Chicago street art community, and a tireless advocate for the meaningful, memorable use of public space. He was interviewed for a GB feature on street art last year.
