EL SERENO HAPPINESS

I was recently hired by the developers at the new Hatchspaces facility in El Sereno to create a mural that showed respect and pride for the neighborhood as well as a connection to the scientific work that would be happening inside this new facility. After many meetings and conversations we came up with an idea that would highlight the four different chemical compounds that are attributed to happiness:
dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. We also chose to highlight local town hero and science leader Willie Zuniga. Watch the video below to give you a better sense of the project.

LA MADE - GRAFFITI ARTIST PANEL

Graffiti Artist Panel:
Turning the Ephemeral into the Permanent | LA Made

Panelists: Chaz Bojorquez, Petal, Zoueh, Aiseborn
Moderators: Man One and Scott “Sourdough” Power
Date: Sunday, September 30, 2018
Time: 2:00pm to 3:30pm (followed by book and print signing)
Location: Central Library @ Mark Taper Auditorium
*Get your free tickets via Eventbrite

This panel will discuss how contemporary Los Angeles graffiti artists have gone from creating temporary works of street art to permanent and important “marks" on society. Through the publishing of their work in books, the installation of permanent murals, and original canvas works collected by both private individuals as well as important institutions, graffiti art has become an art form that exists beyond the short-lived nature of street tags.

The artists on the panel will share their unique experiences and the evolution of their work toward becoming a lasting tradition. The panel will be curated by myself and Scott "Sourdough" Power (Crewest Studio founders and hosts of the Not Real Art podcast) and will feature graffiti artists Chaz Bojorquez, Petal, AiseBorn, and Zoueh.

Following the panel discussion, I will be doing a book signing of my first picture book, Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remixwhich is currently receiving national awards and accolades for its colorful and original illustration work. Books, prints and other merchandise will be available by the other artists as well.

FOOTACTION MURAL E.L.A.

I was recently commissioned by Footaction to create a mural in their East Los Angeles store on Whittier Blvd. They gave me a lot of liberty with the art and just wanted something that reflects what I do in the context of our Latino culture. I call this mural "Somos Raza". If you stop by don't forget to tag me on any photos you post!
Enjoy the time-lapse video below.

MAN ONE X ESTRELLA JALISCO X THRILLIST

This summer I had the opportunity to create a wonderful mural to honor my lovely parents. Something I've been wanting to do for a while now. It is definitely one of my highlights of the year so far.  Thanks to Estrella Jalisco and Thrillist for sponsoring this project and documenting it in such a great way. Check out the video, in depth interview, and pics below.

ORIOL...NEW MURAL IN ECHO PARK

I've just recently completed my newest mural under my self funded mural campaign; #FacesLA. For this mural, I chose to do a portrait of my friend and fellow artist Mr. Eriberto Oriol on the side of an often tagged wall in Echo Park, just off Sunset Blvd.  Eriberto is not only a talented photographer but an incredible artist and one of the first to curate a graffiti show in Los Angeles. He is one of LA's very own that we should all know about. I'm honored that he allowed me to give him props through this mural.
