LA II, Angel Ortiz, 2003, paint marker and oil and acrylic paint on canvas board, 12 x 16 inches , 30,5 x 40,7 cm. This is one of the most sought after rare style of paintings by LA II. Official Follin Gallery COA with dry stamp will accompany canvas. This painting is unique in that it is one of the few paintings Angel painted with a paint brush. All the works he made by hand with a brush have a very special touch.
Great flowing energy that simply pops off the wall. This painting will be published in Angels next catalogue coming out next year.
Gritty, raw, and inherently subversive, graffiti art has emerged from its urban roots and risen to an internationally recognized, gallery-exhibited art form. LA II collaborated with the late Keith Haring, for about 6 years, who also gave him his nickname "LA" or "Little Angel, " in the 80's, and also helped him develop his signature style. Keith Haring was influenced heavily by LA2s graffiti and many of LA2s works are mistaken for Keith Harings.
LA2 was discovered by Keith Haring in the early 1980s and became his close friend and collaborator, traveling the world together, painting murals and sculptures. Signed and dated on the back by artist. You may also see three of his paintings exhibited at Pepperdine University in the Frederick Weisman Collection, or the Weisman Museum in Bel Air.
LA II has shown his work in every major museum in the United States and gallerys throughout the world including the Whitney Museum in New York City.
