The Most Amazing Street Art

Graffiti artist El Mac brings the streets to life with his most amazing murals. From the urban scenes of the USA to Canada, Mexico, Italy, Germany, Amsterdam, Switzerland and recently in far-east places like Vietnam and Singapore, El Mac has made his mark and I’m sure people are happier for it. Like-minded artist Retna sometimes joins El Mac on his adventures. Have a look at some of his and their combined work after the jump.

    And these guys will probably never get the recognition that other pretentious mainstream artists get.

      Macross, El Mac had has quite a few exhibitions – see http://beta.elmac.net/shows. He has an online store as well but everything is naturally sold out.

      Excellent. I’m glad the post title is a fitting one. The etched feel really does make them stand out. I found some more time-lapse videos to keep you entertained:

        why do things look even more epic in time lapse?

        just had a look at his flickr page and man their stuff is awesome, and the scale of some of their work is most impressive

          That one is particularly huge. It was difficult choosing the ones to post here, I like them all but my favourite is the “Ave Maria” mural that El Mac and Retna did in Salt Lake City.
