Gallery VICTOR is proud to announce a unique collaboration between renowned British artist/illustrator Patrick Vale, and Chicago Cubs superstar Ian Happ in, See What I See, a love letter to Chicago, baseball, and The Cubs.

Chicago is a special baseball town, filled with magic and excitement. A good baseball game brings people together, creates a sense of community, and gives the city its own heartbeat. 

Chicago Cubs Superstar Ian Happ knows firsthand how the game he loves impacts his city and its people. Ian has witnessed how something as simple as a bat and a ball can inspire and surprise. Season after season, Happ has seen up close the unique symbiotic relationship between city, crowd, and club.

Likewise, British artist and illustrator Patrick Vale understands this concept and brings this feeling into life through his work. He explains to the eyes what the heart has always known: the mundane can be transformed into something extraordinary, bringing out the beauty in what would otherwise remain invisible. Gallery VICTOR is proud to announce that Patrick Vale will be an artist in residence throughout the summer.

In See What I See, Ian’s and Pat’s worlds collide. Through his exquisite images, Pat shows you what they both see and feel – a city brimming with love for the game of baseball.
