Spain dedicated this spot to all those who have been victims of police brutality and murder, an issue that is finally getting the international media attention that is needed. “Cops Under Flowers” with the names Michael Brown, Oscar Grant, Kelly Thomas and Trayvon Martin was painted by Spain. Also, lets not forget 18-year old Israel Hernández-Llach aka Reefa who was tazed to death by police last year in Miami for spray painting a shuttered McDonald's.

He is also a very talented muralist and street artist. Recently, the Madrid-based artist completed a piece, roughly translated to "11 Figures Working In a Corner" on the small abandoned building in the town of Blanca, Murcia, Spain.
