It’s arty and fun in the Ren West neighborhood

We love our residents here at Renaissance West, and one thing we always enjoy is unearthing their many hidden talents.

IMG_20130122_160341We have recently discovered a gifted painter in our midst. The name of our present-day Picasso is Datel Rios. Drawing, animation, painting, sculpting, and jewelry making have been his loves since he was a child.

Datel attended Columbia College here in Chicago, where he earned his BA in Fine Arts. In  his free time he can often be found working on multiple new projects, where he’s always looking to create something original and inspiring. He aspires to learn and grow as an artist. IMG_20130122_155833

Datel has a portfolio of work, and if you are interested in viewing and/or purchasing any of his pieces, you can contact him via email.

Datel would like to one day open an art gallery here in Logan Square. I must say that’s a fabulous idea! Logan Square has been mentioned by reporters and bloggers as the best neighborhood for affordability and a runner-up for best neighborhood for culture, diversity, and nightlife. There’s an array of new eateries, pubs, coffeehouses, cafés and clothing shops, along with a grassroots arts movement.

I happened to stumble across a quote that I believe describes our Ren West location perfectly: “Logan Square has many attractive features, including wide park-like boulevards, a unique mix of housing types, public transportation, bike and walking paths, progressive local shops and a really cool vibe. The convenience of two Logan Square blue line stops makes it a destination for those wanting to get more for their money.” Courtesy of Greg Whelan at Redfin.

I’m a local Logan Squarist, and I love that I am able to work and play in a neighborhood so richly influenced by art and culture. If you’re looking for a new place to call home, and you’re a frequent visitor of one of our local venues or vendors and happen to inevitably fall in love with all things Logan Square, consider becoming a part of our Renaissance West community.
