Biography / El Mac

American artist Miles McGregor, or better known as El Mac, is best known for his meticulous painting and large-scale murals exploring feminine beauty and honouring ordinary, overlooked or marginalized people. His work is featured as a part of the opening of URBAN NATION MUSEUM in 2017.

El Mac was born and raised in Los Angeles and started painting both smaller indoor-works as well as public murals and graffiti in the mid-90s. Influenced by classical European art, social realism, symbolism, devotional art and the Chicano/Mexican culture, he grew up with in California, he developed his unique visual aesthetic and style of repeating contour patterns. His large-scale murals explore feminine beauty and honour the ordinary, "To uplift and inspire through careful, perfectionist renderings of both the sublime and the humble", as El Mac describes his intention. As an artist he has been commissioned to paint all over the world for museums, universities and cultural institutions. His murals can be found in Europe, Asia, Africa and America.
