DESCRIPTION OF ARTWORK: Man One painted the reindeer as he would a graffiti piece on a wall except Man One allowed the natural curves and shapes of the sculpture dictate where the spray paint would land and form fades or hard lines. The piece has his name MAN written in my highly colorful and bold graffiti style. Starting at the right back side of the sculpture, the letter "M" appears then molds into the "A" in the throat area of the deer. Finally, the "N" covers most of the left side of the body.
ARTIST BACKGROUND: Involved with the Graffiti Art movement since 1987, Man One began his artistic journey on the streets of Los Angeles.
