El Mac (Miles MacGregor) is an internationally renowned artist whose gorgeous large-scale works blur the lines between fine art and graffiti. El Mac began painting with acrylics and painting graffiti in the mid ’90s, when his primary focus became the life-like rendering of human faces and figures. El Mac has since worked consistently toward developing his unique rendering style, which utilizes repeating contour lines reminiscent of ripples, Turing patterns and indigenous North American art.
He has been commissioned to paint murals across the U.S., as well as in Mexico, Denmark, Sweden, Canada, South Korea, Belgium, Italy, The Netherlands, Puerto Rico, Spain, France, Singapore, Germany, Ireland, the U.K., Vietnam and Cuba. Some of his murals have become local landmarks. Mac continues to balance his love of painting large-scale public artworks around the world with his meticulous and time-consuming creation of indoor works. He aims to uplift and inspire through his careful, perfectionist renderings of both the sublime and the humble.
