Known for his monumental portraits, street artist El Mac has painted faces on walls, buildings, and canvases all over the world.
Mac was inspired at a young age by classic European painters such as Caravaggio, Vermeer and Art Nouveau titans such as Klimt and Mucha. The classic European art style is combined with contemporary graffiti and photorealism, mixed with the Chicano & Mexican culture he grew up around.
Some of the most amazing stuff I’ve seen on any street. We could use a lot more of this in NYC.
