On the corner of Abbot Kinney and Cadiz Ct. in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, we ran into this great mural by Alexis Diaz entitled, Rooster Fish. Alexis Diaz (La Pandilla) is an Artist / Muralist from Miami by way of Puerto Rico. In addition to his solo work, Alexis often works collectively with his friend and fellow artist Juan Fernandez, under the name “La Pandilla” (The Gang). Both artists are known for intricate line detail, splashes of vibrant color and the melding of fantastical animal imagery.
Alexis’ and his partner’s murals have been commissioned nationally in cities as diverse as Los Angeles, Atlanta, Richmond and Miami and internationally, besides in the U.S., they’ve worked and exhibited in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Argentina, South Korea and dozens of other countries. From the looks of it, Diaz and ”La Pandilla” have been busy last few months creating beautiful murals all over the Painted Desert in Arizona.
