He's spotted crafting another of his Monkey Mosaics near the Los Santos Customs in Burton. Upon noticing the protagonist's approach, he bolts away, vanishing from the game thereafter.
Random Event - Monkey Mosaics
Eliminating the artist during this event prevents the player from obtaining the Go Go Monkey Blista vehicle.
The mosaics might be inspired by well-known French street artist Invader, who creates similar 8-bit mosaics. These are found in cities around the world, including Los Angeles.
