Abel Macias Builds A Bold Narrative Through Paintings and Murals

Los Angeles painter and muralist Abel Macias is a one of a kind talent. Pulling from both Mexican and southwest American cultures, his art feels like it’s telling a very old tale through a very contemporary language. His work tells stories regardless of application, having done traditional landscapes paintings, or through his more standout efforts, his large-scale murals.

These murals are incredible to see, with my personal favorite living in the entryway of the Proper Hotel. There, his work is like a storybook spread open, a tale of animals and creatures from folk tales, having a conversation with the interior design work Kelly Wearstler. I’ve had the privilege of visiting Abel’s studio and he’s such a rad guy, so down to earth, and so intent on making great work. And I’m super lucky to own one of his paintings, and I can say it’s one of my most precious belongings.
