Review: El Mac @ Fifty24 SF

During that weekend I checked out the Shawn Barber and Moki exhibitions, I was also able to swing by Fifty24 SF and see the solo show of El Mac. I had seen the work online and being a fan of figurative art I was quite taken with it, as well as interested in how he creates these amazing portraits with spraypaint. The Fifty23 blog has a few videos of El Mac working on the outside mural here. Each one of the burlap paintings took up most of the height of the wall, it was pretty striking to see the art consume that much of the gallery space. There were also two prints for sale in the back, the largest one “Songs of Songs” was sadly all sold out.
I was definately an impressive series of paintings, if you happen to be in the area I recommend stopping by and taking a look.
