Graffiti has never been known to lack creativity, and Alexis Diaz's hybrid animal graffiti definitely stays true to the artistic integrity of the ever-evolving street art. The avant-garde idea of an intricately drawn elephant head on the body of an octopus now decorates a wall on Hanbury Street in London.

Created with the use of a multitude of minimal brushstrokes, the piece really leaps off the building because of the intricate detail involved. Imitating pen-stroke art allows the painting to have a realistic feel while displaying a fictitious amalgamated creature like the "octophant." In it's entirety the whole piece took roughly a week to finish so it's easy to see that this animal graffiti was no easy feat for Alexis Diaz to create.
