El-Mac-El-Paso-2

 

Here a brand new mural by Street Art legend El Mac, recently painted in El Paso, Texas and titled “Ánimo Sin Fronteras” (spirit without borders).
The mural was painted using spray paint and fatcapsIt’s and it’s based on photos the artist shot back in 2012 of a man named Melchor Flores whose son was picked up and disappeared by police in Nuevo León in 2009. Since then Flores has been fighting to get answers and justice for his son.
According to the artist, the mural, located in the heart of downtown El Paso, complements the fighting spirit of the classic boxing mural next to it and it is for all those who fight for justice.
