Regardless of the technique that ranges from pencil, acrylic, up to the spray, Macs has the talent to have a recognizable signature style: her sign declined to comics, to the study of lettering, and the photo-realism thanks to an innate sense of pictorial launches clear messages from the walls of the city, the electric cabinotti, up to the canvas. His characters travel around the world, sometimes dreamy, others melancholy, funny or sarcastic and what is astonishing is their disarming expressiveness: are not only beautiful to look at but they have so much to tell. They do not stand out in the streets of the city to simple habit artistic, but to stimulate thought in the observer, to force them to think through a representation that both impacts as are his characters. And this is the only flavor that you grant: to let all enchanted to look astonished.
