In this episode of The Living Artist, Preston speaks with Los Angeles based and internationally known artist Man One. This is a wide-ranging and inspirational conversation that no artist should miss. Man One has been instrumental in creating and solidifying graffiti and street art as a legitimate, highly-recognized and essential art form and movement, that is now cemented in the public consciousness. His work is ubiquitous on the streets of Los Angeles and all over the world. In this conversation, Man One shares with Preston so many wonderful stories about coming up in the streets as a graffiti artist, his explosion onto the street art/mural scene, getting a degree in Fine Art from LMU, working internationally as an artist to spread the power of art to different ages and cultures, opening and running his own gallery (Crewest) to represent graffiti artists, traveling and creating art on stage for The Vans Warped Tour, working in Japan, Northern Ireland, Panama, Germany and more teaching art, illustrating an award-winning children's book, working on the L.A. Graffiti Black Book, his Faces L.A. mural project, working with The Institute on Aging and countless charitable causes, learning and mastering the business of being an artist, his art opening the door to work with the U.S. Government, numerous rockstars, in countless television commercials, make appearances in films, to create social change, and so much more. Man One's hustle and entrepreneurial artistic spirit is fierce, fun and infectious. You don't want to miss out on this wonderful and in-depth interview between PMS and Man One!
