We know that El Mac did the world tour this past year (2010 that is), and he just posted this video of his trip to Singapore and all that he painted while there. Pretty inspirational if you ask us.
We love the tagline on this video from the good people of Viet Nam The World: “El Mac joins Viet Nam The World in Singapore and doesn’t get taken away by Singaporean police for public artwork!”
We had a show with El Mac at our FIFTY24SF Gallery in 2009, and we always like to see artists we have worked with go around the world and push their work further, and El Mac’s year in 2010 makes us proud to have collaborated with him.
As you can probably figure out on your own, graffiti or street art is not really happening in Singapore. At all. So to see El Mac doing a piece on a wall in the uber-clean modern metropolis, its pretty damn cool. In Mac’s words, he was in Singapore for the “Night Festival, which is an annual cultural event put together by the National museum of Singapore and Theatreworks. I was there with Tyke Witnes as part of VietNam the World Tour, which is an ongoing traveling art project oganized by the Propeller-Group. Along with painting for the festival, I met up with my talented friend Jaba, who lives there and helped secure a good wall to paint at Post-Museum. This is that wall. I have to say it felt very strange painting a mural in Singapore…”
