El Mac paints "Juarense y Poderosa", a new mural in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

While you discovered his last collaboration with Kofie a few days ago, El Mac also recently stopped by Mexico where he was invited to work on a large new piece somewhere on the streets of Ciudad Juarez which was known in the past as Paso del Norte, and commonly referred to by locals as simply Juárez.

While you discovered his last collaboration with Kofie a few days ago, El Mac also recently stopped by Mexico where he was invited to work on a large new piece somewhere on the streets of Ciudad Juarez which was known in the past as Paso del Norte, and commonly referred to by locals as simply Juárez.
"Juarense y Poderosa", the mural I painted in Ciudad Juárez, was based on photos I took of a young woman from there named Diana who lost her mother to kidnapping. "Ánimo Sin Fronteras", the second mural, painted on the other side of the border in El Paso, was based on my photos of a man named Melchor, whose son was disappeared by corrupt police. Both Diana and Melchor represent countless others who've lost and suffered in recent years.  -- El Mac
If you stop by Ciudad Juarez, the mural is located at the Cehlider building: Calle 20 de Noviembre #4305, Col. El Colegio.
