Amazing Elephant Octopus Street Art created by Alexis Diaz in London

Puerto Rican artist Alexis Diaz has spent the best part of the past week in just the one place! Seemingly rooted to the spot he has produced an epic work over the past 8 days on Hanbury Street in London.

One of the most popular places for street art in the capital Diaz, who goes by the name La Pandilla, has produced an epic, intricate work featuring the head of an elephant coming out of the wall with it’s trunk turning into the tentacles of an Octopus.

It’s an amazingly detailed piece of work using tiny brushes to create a mesh of detail. Many a picture has been taken of it’s progress as the week has gone by and the mural has slowly appeared against the backdrop of the hottest summer in years.

There’s no doubt that La Pandilla has talent and what a treat it’s been to see his work appear on the streets of London.
