PHOENIX - Most artists want their art hung up in a gallery, but one man is showing off his talent on the streets of central Phoenix.
He's painting murals on walls in a neighborhood along 16th Street.
Artist Angel Diaz says he's been painting murals for a long time and now he gets to do it as a professional.
He says the inspiration for some of the pieces comes from his culture.
Diaz says it takes just a couple to three days to complete one of his pieces.
On his website , Diaz says he uses the work in public spaces as urban storytelling.
Diaz works with homeless youth and human rights groups, "teaching them to paint their own community murals."
