Taco Run: Day Two of Paint Phoenix 2015

Sunday morning was check out time. Leaving the hotel we headed to the go-to taco spot in Phoenix, Taco Mich on McDowell & 16th. Listed as Best Tacos Phoenix 2014 in the website. I highly recommend the al pastor, sorry readers no pics. After a great lunch we have a little under 5 hours to check out the artist still going strong for Paint Phoenix 2015.

While exploring 16th street, a throughway for street art & murals in Phoenix I was able to capture painter, printmaker and LATACO friend Douglas Miles’s contribution to Paint Phoenix 2015. Catching up with Douglas we discussed the importance of art in his city. By inviting artist from other cities and countries this influences local artist to push their own creative process.

As the clock reached 4pm we decided to make the trek back to Los Angeles. We said goodbye to our host Niba DelCastillo and Breeze One and thanked them for their hospitality. We met allot of great people and hope to see them again next year for Paint Phoenix 2016.
