Los Angeles-based Miles McGregor – aka El Mac – is a very talented guy and I’m blown away by his outdoor aerosol murals that have been commissioned around the world.
He began painting both smaller indoor works as well as public murals and graffiti in the mid ’90s, and since that time has developed his unique visual aesthetic and rendering style which utilizes repeating contour patterns. His work draws on influences from classical European art, social realism, symbolism and devotional art, as well as the Chicano and Mexican culture he grew up around. He is best known for his meticulous paintings and large-scale murals exploring feminine beauty and honoring ordinary, overlooked, or marginalized people.
