El Mac recently stopped by Phoenix in Arizona a few monthas ago where he created this large-scale mural entitled “Nuestra Gente” (Our People).
The background designs around the face were painted by Mando Rascón, and the outer images on the ends of the mural were painted by Pablo Luna.
Mando and Pablo were known in the 90s as pioneers of graffiti in Phoenix. Pablo began painting graffiti in the early 80s and became one of Phoenix’s most prolific painters, while Mando perfected a style of intricate lettering that was unique and influential.
The American artist painted the center-part which is featuring a beautiful portrait painted with his signature striation technique.
