These two artists have risen to worldwide prominence in recent years with their graffiti,murals and canvases attracting massive praise. This superb new book documents the artwork of El Mac & Retna over the last six years, and is the first to fully present their collaborative murals. Each of these artists has developed his own distinctive style and technique; Retna is renowned especially for his bold calligraphic brushwork, and Mac for his uniquely stylized painting of lifelike faces and figures. The Mac uses spray paint and Retna uses spray paint and acrylic for paintings; oil, acrylic, enamel, pencil, and other mediums on paper, canvas, and wood. El Mac and Retna have combined forces a number of times in recent years, and have gained increasing attention and applause for the powerful and beautiful murals they've painted in Los Angeles and several other cities around the globe.
