Mexican artist Stinkfish has been with 1xRUN from the beginning and we’re always excited to see new work from the Bogotá-based painter go up. His latest edition L.A. Kid is available exclusively on 1xRUN, and is based on a photo taken by Stinkfish of a child in Los Angeles, before the artist headed overseas to create the mural near an abandoned factory near Lyon, France.
