Pez, fresh from taking part in the Zoo exhibition in at the brick lane gallery in London, sent us in the pick of his most recent work. The collection also includes pieces he created at Cork‘s Surace Tension street art event when he visited these shores in 2007. Pez, or Fish in Spanish started, tagging on the outskirts of Barcelona in 1999. The international icon’s letters soon evolved into his now famous smiling fish. ‘The funny character’s goal was to send good vibrations to people walking in the streets and soon its family grew into a huge smile of giraffes, demons, angels and aliens.’
