El Mac is painting a mural in Alexandria.

The Los Angeles-based muralist will paint a new piece at the corner of 901 King Street over the course of the next two weeks. The design is still under wraps, and building owner Mike Dameron of Windmill Hill Design Build is trying to stay out of his way.

“I’m not going to disrupt the artist’s vision,” Dameron told ALXnow. “I’m stoked that this world famous muralist took the contract and is coming to Alexandria. I’m really thrilled by it.”

El Mac, the professional name for Miles MacGregor, is known for creating large photorealistic murals in the U.S., Mexico and Europe.

El Mac is still designing the piece, which will be created with spray paint. The ground level of the building is home to White House Black Market and the upper levels are in the process of being converted into apartments.

“His artistic style is unique,” Dameron said. “I got a sneak peak into what he’s working on and it’s going to be amazing.”
