Biography / Alexis Diaz

Alexis Diaz is a painter and muralist from Puerto Rico, now living in Florida. Dreamlike depictions drawn with an almost pen-and-ink-like level of detail is what sets his style apart. Alexis Diaz’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Dreamlike. Detailed. Damn. The murals of Alex Diaz, also known as La Pandilla, cannot be boiled down to a one-word-description. Millions of brush strokes forming illustrations of animals in full metamorphosis, flowers, and symbolic elements thrown against colourful backgrounds. There is just too much to see and to dive into in his art to simplify it. Alexis creates most of his compositions freehand, line-by-line as he goes along. With walls as background, his art is present in the open space and thus reaches out to everyone, regardless of their status.
