About the Artist:
LA 2: Born & raised on the lower East side of New York, Angel Ortiz (Little Angel aka: LA II/ LA2/ LA ROC) was quick to learn the ways of the street artists and graffiti writers during the late 1970's. In his thirty plus years as an artist in New York City, LA II has painted walls, cans, vases, people, trains, and everything in between. Creating a unique signature style that combined both the "tag" and intricate abstract patterns, LA 2 was eventually befriended by rising art icon Keith Haring. Often referred to as "Keith Haring's Silent Partner" and "collaborator," he was fortunate to work with some of the leading pop art and graffiti artists from around the world. Currently, LA 2 continues to develop his style and has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions including a recent solo exhibition here at the Dorian Grey Gallery. LA 2 has paintings in hundreds of private collections and museums throughout the world, including the Whitney Museum of Art, NY & MoMA.
