Some of El Mac’s most breathtaking murals are collaboration with graffiti artists where his ethereal portraiture is overlaid against a background of urban letterforms. Nuestra Gente, created earlier this year in Phoenix, Arizona, certainly fits the bill when he collaborated with local legends Mando RascónPablo Luna. The background designs seen around the face were painted by Rascón and the outer images on the ends of the mural were laid down by Luna.

Created in downtown on Van Buren Street, the sublime wall near where the Los Angeles-based artist grew up, was painted as a tribute to and for the people of Phoenix. Read more about the background story behind this piece here.
