Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada is known for his larger than life canvases, often preferring acres of land for his charcoal portraits that are best viewed on Google Earth. The Cuban-American contemporary artist scaled down for his latest wall in London, where he painted a mural of a local resident, one of his trademarks, for UK-based street art aficionados Global Street Art. While not as large as some of his previous work, it's still as breathtaking and moving.
