"CHEF ROY CHOI AND THE STREET FOOD REMIX" - Happy to announce that we will be officially releasing this book at an event on May 20th at the Los Angeles Public Library in DTLA. I will also be booking other signings with galleries and book stores throughout the year, so stay tuned for more info!
"READERS to EATERS announces the publication of Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remix,written by award-winning children’s book author Jacqueline Briggs Martin and June Jo Lee, and illustrated by graffiti art pioneer Man One. The book will be published this May in celebration of Asian American Heritage Month."
My horse titled "PONY UP" was on display at Pershing Square (in DTLA) during most of the month of October. It will now be on view at Santa Anita Racetrack to celebrate the Breeders Cup starting this Friday Nov.4th and 5th.
The other four Crewest artists included in this campaign are: Yolanda Gonzalez, Andre Miripolsky, Michael Massenburg, and Clinton Bopp. Check out this cool little video that the Breeders Cup put together:
See you at the races!
Recently I was commissioned by the cool guys over at NuVisions Studio to create one of my large black and white graffiti spirits on their wall. I had been wanting to do this character for a while now and this was the perfect setting for it! My first Go-pro time-lapse of a mural and some great pics by Gil (Onionskin Photography). Shout out to Greg and the whole crew out there!
Every year Pantone announces it's color of the year to a global audience of eager fashion designers, interior decorators, brands, designers, and basically anyone who deals with color in their perspective fields. Pantone reached out and asked if I would participate in helping them with the early December launch for the color of the year. Of course I said yes!
This year was a first on many levels for starters there would be 2 colors of the year not one for 2016. Named Rose Quartz and Serenity I was asked to bring my creativity to the table. So using Venice Beach as my back drop I created a signature "Man One" graff style focusing on the pastel hues at hand.
That day the sky decided to be in agreement and mimicked the colors I was working with. Wow! Couldn't have asked for a better result. I also created some bespoke Pantone inspired spray can labels just to add that extra touch. Thousands of international Instagram views and comments later, I say it was a successful launch!
