THE "COHERE" COLLECTION
The Chicago Cubs have teamed up with multidisciplinary artist and Chicago native, Louis De Guzman, on a collaboration that celebrates Chicago's vibrant culture, champions the city's talented community of artists and engages the next generation of fans. For the collaboration, De Guzman created a sculpture titled "COHERE" which is a dynamic reinterpretation of the Cubs' "Angry Bear" logo crafted from electroplated bronze, a reflective material which allows the viewer to physically see themselves in the art as a way to emphasize a sense of community and connection among the views. "COHERE" was constructed by purposely joining multiple pieces of metal together to depict the binding of community and connection Chicagoans feel toward one another, their city and their team.
As part of the collaboration, De Guzman also created a limited-edition merchandise collection for fans to purchase, including a short-sleeve pocket T-shirt , a pullover hoodie and miniature versions of the "COHERE" sculpture.
Louis De Guzman is an award-winning visual artist and designer who creates artwork that merges his past with his present.
Over the last decade De Guzman has proved himself as a true multidisiplinary artist by blending both traditional and experimental techniques in his work.
His signature geometric abstraction style often blends together images and stories that represent his family's immigrant journey, as well as his own experience as a second-generation Filipino American. De Guzman's career has led him to create well-received original bodies of work as well as interpretations of licensed intellectual property.
