Unfortunately for fans of El Mac, the gifted street muralist has been dealing with health issues as of late. But, luckily for him and us, he's finally feeling a little better and has been able paint on the streets a bit. This latest piece is entitled Juarense y Poderosa and and is one in a series of murals inspired by those who have lost family members to the violence, corruption and injustice that has plagued Mexico for the last near-decade. The Los Angeles-based artist photographed participants in the Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity (Caravana por la Paz con Justicia y Dignidad) when it passed through El Paso back in 2012 and chose a young woman from there named Diana who lost her mother to kidnapping for this portrait painted in Ciudad Juárez (at the CEHLIDER building: Calle 20 de Noviembre #4305, Col. El Colegio) with the help of David "Grave" Herrera. Photo credit: Eric Heights. Discuss El Mac here.
