Man ONE Mural Unveiling — The Sweatshop

If you know the street art scene in LA, you definitely know Man ONE. As the owner of the now-closed Crewest Gallery and an artist in his own right, Man ONE has been adding color to LA’s streets for quite some time now. He’s also contributed to the fight for legal murals in public spaces. As part of Red Bull Latagráfica Edición II, Man ONE and nine other artists are creating murals around LA. This Thursday, July 31st from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m., head to The Sweatshop for a special unveiling of Man ONE’s mural for the project. DJ Ethos will provide the beats and the party will serve up refreshments.

José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros — La Luz de Jesus Gallery

We’ve previously mentioned José Rodolfo Loaiza Ontiveros and his awesome sense of humor. The artist is back with another show that mixes cultures, icons and more. Expect the usual roster of recognizable characters like Disney figures and other pop culture references. For “Profanity Pop,” Ontiveros will mix the divine with the entertaining, putting familiar characters in religious themes. The works will also comment on power and mythology in the artist’s trademark style. Head to the La Luz de Jesus Gallery on August 1st from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. to check out the show.
