Graffiti Artist Man One Painting Demo at CSUF Pollak Library

LA-based artist Man One will demonstrate his painting process and give a lecture from 1pm to 3pm on Tuesday, March 12th, at the Pollak Library on the Cal State Fullerton campus, 800 N. State College Blvd, Fullerton.

A proud Chicano artist, Man One is a first generation American whose parents immigrated from Mexico to LA in the late 1960s.  He developed his love of art through graffiti.  His work has been featured around the world in exhibits and popular media.  His murals pepper the landscape of Los Angeles from public buildings to art installations.

In 2002 he founded the Crewest Gallery, a street art gallery in LA to give graffiti artists a professional venue to show their work.

In 2017, Man One illustrated a children’s book about LA Food Truck Godfather Roy Choi.  The book, “Chef Roy Choi and the Street Food Remix (Readers to Eaters)” has been honored with several awards and will be on sale at the campus bookstore during the event which is co-sponsored by the Pollak Library and Donoghue Children’s Literature Center.

His work has been exhibited worldwide, including at the Museum of Contemporary Art LA, The Getty, and Parco Museum in Tokyo, Japan, and galleries in Australia, Germany, Mexico and New Zealand. He has painted live onstage  at music concerts including for MTV with the Black Eyed Peas. He is the recipient of the Speaker and Specialist Grant by the US State Dept to work with children in Panama to build self-esteem through art.

The event is free but parking on campus is $2/hr ($8/day). For more information please contact Sarah Parramore at 657 278 5801
