Chicago Artist Pays Tribute to Prince

Posted:

CHICAGO – A Chicago artist is paying tribute to the late music legend with a mural.

Rahman Barnes took to the side of a building, rendering a true to life mural in Prince's likeness.  Prince is in his favorite color purple, on a motorcycle, reminiscent of his Purple Rain days.

Barnes says his work is a way of paying respect to the artist.

Prince died at his Paisley Park compound last Thursday, at the age of 57. His cause of his death has not yet been determined.
