Graffiti artist Arturo "A.J." Gomez of Orosi is switching gears by doing commissioned murals. Here, he works on a wall for The Miracle League of Visalia. Gomez was arrested three years ago for putting graffiti on private property. "I love street art, but I want to be recognized as a legitimate artist," he says. Eric Paul Zamora ezamora@fresnobee.com
