Erick Diaz . Creative

Artist extraordinaire, author, poet, actor, and activist are just a few words that can be used in the same sentence of this once patient and resident of Arkham Asylum.

It was once said that he kept his silence for 2 years just to understand the beauty of a whisper. When is comes to his art there is no correct few words that can describe his final products.
