El Mac Van in The Mission

I stumbled across this gem in The Mission and was stoked beyond words. El Mac is one of my favorite street artists so whenever I come across one of his pieces it’s like discovering a Picasso in an Easter Egg hunt.

This is another one of his murals in the high traffic area of Haight and Fillmore.

And then there’s this one, also in SF, which I believe has already been covered up.

Such is the occupational hazard of temporary street art.

El Mac does large scale pieces all over the planet. Here’s his Margulies piece in Miami, a collaboration with Retna

I love how kids in the Mission look exactly like kids in Vietnam when they are just hanging out and enduring some dork who is taking pictures around them.

At 30-years-young, El Mac is still a really young artist and one of those people you want to keep your eye on.

The kid has a lot of talent and I think some of his best work is still ahead of him.
