Retna x The Mac

Entitled the Knight, this new RETNA and The Mac collaboration embodies Los Angeles culture with delicate precision. RETNA’s signature typography flanks the portrait with pensive Spanish prose to the left and an excerpt from Marvin Gay’s “What’s Goin’ On” to the right, and finally tipping the brim of the hat with the inscription “Only Love Can Conquer Hate.”

The Mac is no stranger to intricate shading techniques and stoic portraiture. Much of his most recent work plays with topographical and moire patterns in fine detail. Here he’s utilized a circulating moire technique giving this striking figure an almost relaxed intensity.

The mural is located off Jefferson Blvd. in Baldwin Hills, CA, just east of La Brea.
