Some mourners want to tell the world how they feel. Current and former Marlins teammates of pitcher Jose Fernandez, killed in a Miami Beach boating accident last month, told Brazil with graffiti art they shared with the world via Instagram.
Using the skills of noted New York-born Brazilian street artist Tito na Rua, Giancarlo Stanton, A.J. Ramos and former Marlin-current Los Angeles Angel Ricky Nolasco put a tribute to Fernandez on a Rio de Janeiro wall during offseason vacation. The mural contains the Cuban flag, Fernandez’s No. 16, his nickname “Niño,” and each player’s signature.
