One local artist decided to pay tribute to The Mexican icon publicly. Roland "Soder" Saldaña with Artistik Misfits sprung into action and got it done 2 days after finding the perfect location at 2800 Collingsworth at Jensen., where he feels it would be appreciated not too far from his home.

Saldaña tells us he's been painting for 25 years beginning with graffiti now it’s mostly art.
