Street artist Alexis Diaz paints the rag & bone wall, New York 2017

Rag & bone, New York, often showcases street murals by international artists, such as DALeast, D*Face and ludo, etc on their exterior wall on Elizabeth street. The ever changing street art is what makes the wall so popular.

Street artist Alexis Diaz has just finished painting the wall outside rag & bone on Elizabeth Street, off 73 East Houston, in Nolita, Manhattan.

Puerto Rican artist Alexis Diaz is well known for his black and white textured patterns similar to that of etchings and engravings. His murals sport strange fusions of animal anatomy, for example an elephant with octopus tentacles as his trunks. Its this bizarre and strange concept that gives Alexis Diaz his unmistakable style.

Here Alexis paints the Unicorn, a mythological animal resembling a horse with a single horn, he paints feathered wings and, in some parts, the boney anatomy of the animal, all encased in a glass box. The background depicts the sky with mulitple clouds.
