Billy Craven, Owner of Galerie F
Billy Craven is an active practicing artist living and working in Chicago. His artistic inclinations lean towards fine art and gig posters featuring vintage photography and clippings. Cyclism, skateboarding, and politics are common themes that drive his printmaking aesthetics.
Billy Craven has long interacted with the world of street art and graffiti through his photography. With Craven as owner, contemporary street art will play a vital role at Galerie F. Hosting a wide range of international street artists in solo and group shows, Craven wishes to blur the lines of fine and street art with Galerie F as the vehicle.

With a background in arts and event management, photography, graphic design, illustration and screen printing, Laura brings immense energy and direction to Galerie F’s mission. Being terrifically organized with a keen eye for the details, she’s enthusiastic about centering the gallery and propelling it forward.
Beyond her technical toolbelt, Laura is passionate about creating any kind of experience that invites everyone to enjoy art. Whether you’re an avid art print collector or you have never owned an original work of art in your life, it doesn’t matter. It has always been her dream to establish a very broad and engaging art community. Galerie F presents a perfect opportunity to not only bring artwork to the public thereby bettering and beautifying life, but also to support and thoughtfully evolve the voice and vision of artists.
