LA artist ‘El Mac’ brings mural to Northeastern campus
Boston Globe - 05/05/2015
Being tapped to create the mural had special significance for the West Coast artist. El Mac said his father attended Northeastern and earned a degree in engineering from the school. His mother also grew up in Boston.
This was the first time he has stepped foot in the state, however.
“There’s thousands of schools in this country and until now I’ve never been to Boston,” he said.
Gazing at El Mac as the artist hovered above the ground on a lift, spray-painting the brick wall with a mix of grays and blues, Aoun called the mural the “pièce de résistance” in the public art series.
“It’s magnificent,” he said. “Look at this. It’s beautiful.”
