LA II: Born & raised on the lower East side of New York, Angel Ortiz (Little Angel aka: LA II) was quick to learn the ways of the street artists and graffiti writers during the late 1970’s. Creating a unique signature style that combined both the “tag “ and intricate abstract patterns, LA II was eventually befriended by rising art icon Keith Haring. For a period of about 10 years they traveled around the world and collaborated on hundreds of projects. After Haring passed away LA II continued to develop his style and has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions. LAII has paintings in hundreds of private collections and museums throughout the world, including the Whitney Museum of Art, NY. Please join us at the Dorian Grey Gallery as we host a solo exhibition of his most recent paintings, including the original work on canvas for Hearts for Haiti.
