Artist _El Mac @ Katherine Cone Gallery





Just recently had the chance to meet one of my favorite artist, Elmac. Click the link for his website, he also has an official blog here.  Elmac's work crosses boundaries of graffiti and fine arts by blending techniques of portraiture and aerosol painting.  Mac's use of fat caps on his mural work is incredible layering lines to create contour and detail.  In his fine art smaller work his lines are much more precise and stylized giving the facial structure a one of kind textural quality while blending colors and movement to create very life like imagery.  It was an honor and great inspiration to meet him at his gallery show along with the likes of Shepard Fiery, Robbie Conal, and Sean Cheetham.
