El Mac, Retna and Kofie
El Mac, Retna and Kofie were commissioned by Yosi Sergant to create a mural for the Manifest Equality event held in Hollywood, California from March 3-7 of 2010.
On his website Kofie says “From February 26 to March 2 we painted day and night using imported spray paint and 3 scissor lifts to create the 20 x 100 foot semi-grayscale mural located in the parking lot of the former Big Lots.”
Retna’s type reads ‘JUSTICE’ from left to right. El Mac Painted the portrait of the woman, the sword as well as the scales, all created from his own photo reference. Kofie painted the large circular frame caping each end as well as the halo’s behind each hand.
Having featured El Mac a couple of days ago I couldn't resist posting this video that was released today.
