There’s a new mural in Old Town.

Last week, Los Angeles-based muralist El Mac put the finishing touches on his new mural outside 901 King Street. The piece depicts a bespectacled woman looking south.

The artist did not provide a title or themes behind the mural with his client, building owner Windmill Hill Design Build. Still, Windmill Hill founder Mike Dameron said he was thrilled with the result.

“”I think the striking pose and scale really compliment the corner and we had an amazing experience getting to know El Mac and his family,” Dameron told ALXnow. “He works mostly at night and it was amazing to see the progression each morning. He brought museum quality public art to Alexandria and we are super excited about it.”

El Mac, the professional name for Miles MacGregor, is known for creating large photorealistic murals. He did not respond to multiple calls for comment.
