Chicago artist and good friend of the site, Hebru Brantley, has been making headlines in publications across the globe this week for his work at Miami’s famed Art Basel weekend. Brantley competed in a global Bombay Saphire competition, as well as had his own exclusive wall in Miami’s Wynwood district, but Hebru’s biggest score was selling a piece to Jay-Z and Beyonce.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z were also seen perusing the works on show at America’s hippest art fair. We’re told Jay snapped up a $20,000 painting titled “Everyone’s Scared” by 31-year-old Chicagoan Hebru Brantley, who won the Basel showing as a finalist in the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series produced with Russell Simmons’ Rush Foundation.

So yeah, this was a pretty big deal as you can see. To see the piece Hov and B purchased hit the jump. But if you’re familiar with Bru’s work, then you’ve no doubt seen everyone’s scared.
