Since 2009, Francisco Diaz has been creating large-scale urban murals that transform static city facades into dynamic walls to beautify cityscapes while strengthening cooperation, conversation and community. The large scale of his work is associated with his delicate style and a distinct palette. From a warehouse off California’s 101 freeway to the Oslo Botanical Garden, from neighborhood parks to modern apartment complexes, Diaz’s masterpieces awaken the senses and invigorate communities.
