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!

Man One signature spray can series for Pantone. Coming soon??

Thanks to this collaboration I was featured on a few websites like: LATACO and PFSK

Aside from my mural here in L.A., we ( helped orchestrate other murals in Miami and New York at the same time.  Check out the work over there by my crew mates Marka27 & Werc.

MOLAA’s first exhibition to present works solely by Southern California-based Chicano artists, introduces audiences to this unique school of American art through a series of landscapes spanning 40 years. The exhibition features paintings, drawings, photographs, mixed media works and rare studies by artists such as Carlos Almaraz, Yolanda González, Gronk, Wayne Alaniz Healy, Ramses Noriega, Frank Romero, Jamex and Einar de la Torre, John Valadez, Patssi Valdez, Shizu Saldamando, Roberto Gutíerrez, Jose Ramirez, and Ana Serrano. In addition, street artists Man One, Jaime “Germs” Zacarias, Vyal Reyes, and Johnny KMDZ Rodriguez have been invited to create new, original artworks—inspired by some of the works on view in the exhibition—to convey the breadth and relevance of today’s Chicano art.

Here are some pics from opening night but there is much more to enjoy in person.

*Extended through January 31st, 2016!

Here are (almost) final shots of the mural we painted in Wiesbaden, Germany.  The mural was a dedication to the International Wall Street Meeting Monument and Meeting of Styles in the Schlachtof-Wiesbaden, Germany.

The theme was a Graffiti Universe, here's me working on my Man One World and character!
