Well known for his larger than life murals, Mac recently headed south of the border to create this massive new piece in Monterrey, México. The piece can be found on the side of Monterrey’s MARCO contemporary art museum and is Mac’s first in the city itself. As for the guy in the Yankees cap, the portrait is of Régulo de Leon Santos, a parking lot attendant who works near the museum. Whilst there’s no explanation for the subject choice and I’m not incredibly sure as to why this guy caught Mac’s attention either, it may have something to do with Seres Queridos – or “loved ones” as it translates – the project Mac painted the mural for. Perhaps this guy helped Mac out in the parking lot?! We’ll never know.
