One of L.A’s finest graffiti artists – El Mac, graced us with his super-chilled presence yesterday, and better yet, stayed up all night to put up one of his amazing murals on the side of our building, Rockwell house.
El Mac is one of the most highly regarded spraycan-wielding artists in the world. His inimitable contour line covered, photo-realistic portraits are completed to a level of perfection that defies belief. From incredible interpretations of Dutch masters to portraits of Mexican workers, his style and meticulous approach are uniquely his own – even down to chilling cans down with ice to achieve consistency of line.
Mac, and his lovely lady Kim, popped in to pull an all-nighter just before running off to Heathrow to grab a flight back to L.A. The result is spectacular. EndloftheLine got a sofa out, set the timelapse to record, cracked the beers, and enjoyed an intimate audience with a truly special talent. The process of his painting is every bit as fascinating as the final piece and we felt very privileged to have the chance to watch him in action, Although we are paying for it now.
Watch this space for the complete timelapse animation coming soon.
