The 2022 Lollapalooza poster embodies the feeling and essence of Lollapalooza and Chicago- bright, fun, weird, and a bit chaotic. Also inspired by the artist’s Chicago collogues painting murals, making music, printing gig posters, and being the best kind of weird. This musical creature could be seen moving through the city rocking out, spreading joy, love and just a dash of mayhem. One can only assume it has skateboards for feet and is fueled by hotdogs and Old Style (responsibly).
