TREJO'S COFFEE AND DONUTS!

Unless you've been hiding under a rock in LA, you know that actor and all around bad ass, Danny Trejo, has opened up a donut shop in Hollywood. I was honored to have been commissioned to create two large paintings that were installed on the exterior of the flashy pink building.

Next time you go grab some donuts take a selfie in front of one of my pieces and please tag me on instagram (@manoneart)

Trejo's Coffee and Donuts is located in Hollywood:

6785 Santa Monica Blvd
at Highland Ave
Los Angeles, Ca 90038.

Below are some pics and love from IG'ers.

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.

STREET ART MURAL TOUR FOR FOCA MEMBERS

Yesterday I led another one of my street art mural tours in L.A. I had the pleasure of showing the murals and art of our wonderful city to a nice sized group from FOCA. We walked around the alley projects near Gabba Gallery and ended in the Arts District at the Container Yard. I love the excitement in people's eyes when they experience something they've never seen before!

If you're interested in booking a tour for your group, contact me: manone@manone.com

HUE MURAL FESTIVAL IN HOUSTON

I was fortunate enough to be invited to participate in this year's HUE MURAL FESTIVAL in Houston, Texas which took place in the middle of October.  Over 100 international and local artists created over 80 new and unique murals. It was such a great time and experience to connect and re-connect with old friends and new ones.

Title: "Reaching for the Tip Top"
Location: 2801 Polk St, Houston, TX 77003

Here's a time lapse video of the wall I painted entitled 

Some final pics of the wall as well as in progress shots...

Special thanks to Gonzo247 and Carolyn for organizing such a great event! Big ups to my trusty assistant Logan, Frankel's Costume Shop for giving up your walls, the Holiday Inn for hooking up the rooms and all who had something to do with HUE MURAL FESTIVAL 2016!

THANK YOU!!

BREEDERS CUP

Crewest Studio has partnered up with the Breeders Cup this year and I am one of the 5 lucky L.A. artists who is turning a life size fiberglass thoroughbred into a piece of public art!

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!
