BEST Muralist of the decade: Langston Allston

From our BEST Arts of the decade feature:

One of the truest bright spots of this past decade in the arts here was the emergence of Langston Allston as a prolific muralist in Champaign-Urbana. The list of places you can see his work is long by now: in the alley behind Sipyard and Courier Cafe; on the side of the old Mike N Molly’s / Seven Saints beer garden; inside of Pixo, on the sidewalks in front of Esquire; on particular homes in Champaign. Now living in New Orleans, and working near and far, his export continues to grow and pay dividends and make us proud. (Seth Fein)
