El Mac is at it again, this time going big in Denmark. The piece is titled “Purity of Heart.” I’m loving this Triptych. The image on the left wall is a chromatic negative of the one on the right. So cool. There is also a very cool story behind this piece which Mac shares on his blog:
This was commissioned by Martin Nielsen, who recently renovated this century old orphanage. The murals face a large assisted living facility, and every day I painted I felt an extra sense of obligation to my elderly audience to make something beautiful. I also wanted to paint a powerful, dignified portrait of my friend Dame’s father Fabian, who has been battling cancer for years.
Painting this was an amazing experience. Many thanks to the Nielsen family and Galerie Wolfsen for making this happen. Thanks also, once again, to Ari & Lone for all their help. Thanks to Lacheln & Fabian for posing, and to everyone else that showed support.
