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.


This is the first time (that a know of) where a poem was written, inspired by one of my murals. Enjoy!


                                    On “The Downtown Artist at Large”
                                    A Mural by Man One, Los Angeles, 2012
                                                  for Lamont

                                    by:  Joseph Ross © 2013

                                    If only America’s roof
                                    could keep out the cold

                                    the way colors sometimes
                                    can, the artist’s brush

                                    might tower over
                                    the world like God or

                                    God’s mother, awaiting
                                    not worship or gold

                                    but use. The brush gripped
                                    to splash the color of light

                                    in the shape of a broken
                                    life. Good and evil,

                                    the saliva of God, wait
                                    impatiently to mix with

                                    the hue of open eyes,
                                    the color of coffee,

                                    the shade of an impatient
                                    country where some are never

                                    at home. The artist finally
                                    arrives at the color

                                    of a wall’s destiny:
                                    every rich man’s wall re-born

                                    with a poor man’s face.
More info on the poet:


A good friend commissioned these paintings of his two grand daughters,
Sara and Nicole.

Done in my typical aerosol style, it was easy to mix the colors
and patterns because the images of the girls were so cheerful and happy!

(But they ain't cheap!)
