Nearly two weeks ago, artist El Mac painted a new mural atop a busy West Hollywood building. Interestingly enough, hardly anyone noticed that it was taking place. That’s because this most recent work by the artist has been kept under wraps for this last part of the month. The mural will be unveiled alongside an L.A. Times Magazine article which focuses on the writings of Connie Rice, a civil rights attorney, activist, and relative of Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Her likeness is actually the source behind this latest mural by El Mac, who continues to display his incredible photo-realistic graffiti technique. The process behind his latest mural took about two days to complete and it’s a fitting way for the talented artist to finish a very busy 2011. It will be interesting to see how his name continues to grow in the next twelve months, but in the meantime check out these exclusive photos by Carlos Gonzales.
