“The Humble and Sublime” is the name of a nice video, documenting the creation of a new painting for the the upcoming solo-show by famous graffiti artist El Mac in New York.
Mac, who visited Berlin earlier this year for a live-painting together with Augustine Kofie, will present some astonishing acrylic paintings in his well-known rendering style.
Born in Los Angeles in 1980 to an engineer and an artist, Mac has been creating and studying art independently since childhood. Raised primarily in Phoenix, he drew inspiration from the surrounding Mexican & Chicano culture of the American Southwest, religious art, pin-up art, graffiti, and a wide range of classic artists such as Caravaggio, Mucha, and Vermeer.

Since I had a closer look at one of his paintings and its development progress, I can’t get enough of his work. Maybe it would be the same with you after watching this video…the comment area joyfully expects your feedback and opinion! Via ektopia.co.uk.
