Objects At Rest by El Mac at Galerie Wolfsen

Renown muralist and artist, El Mac opened his second solo show in Denmark this month at Galerie Wolfsen titled ‘Objects at Rest”.  The show is exhibiting some of El Mac’s pencil drawings for the first time.

El Mac: “Drawing from life -drawing people, especially- has been one of my favorite things to do for as long as I can remember. Interpreting what you see with nothing more than pencil lines on paper is something timeless and universal, it can portray humanity and convey personality in a uniquely honest and direct way. Drawing from life requires practice, but can enhance our appreciation and observation of the life around us, while also strengthening our other artistic endeavors.”

Here are some of his life inspired drawings in his signature style:
