A simply stunning commission piece created by pioneer street artists MAC and Retna in Los Angeles. MAC painted the girl based on a photo taken, and Retna added his touches with halo and his signature text designs in the background. Entitled Collige, Virgo Rosas, the title piece comes from the old Latin text phrase in the halo: “Collige, virgo, rosas dum flos novas et nova pubes et memor esto aevumsic properare tuum”, translated in English to read “Pick, girl, the flowers while they are still fresh and the youth is new, remembering that the time goes by”. Take a look at the creative process with a few images and this short video clip.
