The Painted Desert Project : Alexis Diaz (Part II)

The Painted Desert Project is a pretty awesome initiative to get artists to paint vendor stands and abandoned buildings along Highway 89 in northern Arizona, in hopes to draw visitors to the local Navajo community and challenge stereotypes of the people. After his initial billboard painted in the Navajo desert Alexis Diaz of La Pandilla has done a second piece on the side of a vendor stand. This beauty found in Bitter Springs of a conjoined bison and bear, two very important and traditional animals in Navajo culture, bears (no pun intended) an incredible amount of detail of how the industrialization of these environments has affected the people and animals. Check out the details of the piece here... it's a must!
