Upper Playground is proud to present El Mac and Retna’s latest work together, two new t-shirt designs that are prime examples of how this duo’s work is beautifully in sync. The first design, La Reina de la Tribus, features Retna’s signature calligraphy and accent strokes surrounding and highlighting a photorealistic portrait of La Reina painted by El Mac. The second design, 'Young Scribe', is the portrait of a young boy by El Mac surrounded by Retna’s calligraphy. The work first appeared on a mural as part of a show the two had at the Robert Berman Gallery. 'Young Scribe' was also featured on the cover of Alianza, the book cataloging the art of Retna & El Mac, as well as the Montana Artist Series Hardcore can release in limited quantities last year.
