The El Mac mural at the Adobe Campus in Lehi, Utah is an extension of graffiti and education.

Los Angeles street artist El Mac created a large scale mural within a school campus to encourage education. The image he made depicts a young girl in a state of concentration. A subtle detail that sets this piece apart from most other murals is the binary code acting as backdrop to the girl. El Mac's ability to incorporate hidden imagery encourages people to take a deeper look at his work and question the messages he is attempting to convey.

His art speaks to the students who will interact with the piece on a daily basis. The graphics are vibrant and the coloration is minimal with splashes of red to highlight the seriousness of his message. The El Mac mural is an exhibition of artistic expression and encouragement for youth to take education seriously.
