This Artist is Making Memorable Street Murals [Video]

These street murals are special.

Alexis Diaz knows how to expertly create animals that appear real and fantastical at the same time. He does this by creating street murals.

Diaz’s street murals depict “transfigured wildlife that are local to the place that the mural is presented, tying it to the regional ecosystem, while at the same time expressing a kind of magical symbolism, imbued with an imagined metamorphosis that seamlessly combines animals with human parts, wings and roots into one universal and unending continuum of transformation,” Treehugger reports.
