MURAL FOR ABC'S "THE MAYOR"

Last month, and thanks to Crewest, I was asked to create a mural for ABC's newest TV show "The Mayor" which debuted this week.  I got to design a 14' x 48' mural that was hand painted by the guys at Colossal Media in Brooklyn, NY (on Wythe and N. 11th in Williamsburg to be exact).

The mural shows off an open faced giant sketchbook with the tag #REPRESENT repeated in different styles across the spread. My goal was to show the same word in multiple forms just like a graffiti artist practices with different styles, fonts, and colors in a blackbook.

The mural was a hit from the get go! Lots of people have been posting it via social media and taking cool IG pics in front of it. Here are some great shots to share with you. Don't forget to check out the show, it's actually really funny and has a great cast.

VISION ZERO MURAL

Earlier this summer I created this fun mural in association with LACCNP for Mayor Garcetti's VISION ZERO initiative. The City's goal is to eliminate all traffic deaths by 2025. I figured that creating a large mural aimed at the kids in the neighborhood would be best for the initiative in this particular location. The mural is located on the side of Sam's Market on the corner of Westlake and 6th St. The title is "Cuidado Niños Jugando" (Caution Children Playing). I hope people enjoy the mural and the message as they travel around the MacArthur Park area.

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.

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.
