Angel Ortiz

Angel Ortiz (b. 1967)

Angel Ortiz was born in New York. He is also known as LAII, LA2, or LA Rock, names which stand for "Little Angel" and are often seen as his tags.

At thirteen, he began his career when he met Keith Haring in 1980.  For a number of projects Ortiz collaborated with Haring from 1981 to 1984. He continued to make his own artwork after his work with Haring ended. However, Ortiz is often overshadowed by Haring's fame. 

He has been fighting to make his past and current work more well-known. In 2008 he famously tagged his name in a restored Haring outdoor mural without permission.

Ortiz is still living in New York and continues to create graffiti art.
