The Crystal Ship: Alexis Diaz in Ostend, Belgium

Puerto Rican muralist Alexis Diaz spent the last few days working on the streets of Ostend in Belgium for the second edition of the excellent Crystal Ship Street Art Festival.

Geared with ink and brushes, the talented artist worked his way through this ultra detailed piece which was painted with thousands upon thousands of tiny brush strokes. Inhabited mostly by phantasmagorical animals, Alexis Diaz’s captivating murals are characterized by a very detailed technique and line-by-line precision. Diaz’s signature style is the use of tiny black brushstrokes on white to render his creatures, making them look like highly-detailed pen-and-ink drawings.
