From a great article by Fruzsina Eordogh:

Not many street artists in Chicago do large, intricate wheat pastes… so when one does emerge, his or her presence is felt immediately. I saw my first Nice One paste when I visited Wicker Park for the opening of The Chicago Alderman Project on March 20th this year. Although I viewed the Nice One piece from across the street I remember being struck by the amount of detail in the work, and wondering about the reference to Goons.  A google search reveals Nice One has been around since 2007, labeled an “up and comer” by Gapers Block.
