Eyeone is an artist and graphic designer based in Los Angeles. His work is rooted in graffiti, printmaking, photography, and punk rock. Often focusing on isolated objects and individuals, his art reflects on themes of alienation, survival, melancholy, resistance, and the myriad experiences encountered while navigating the chaos of contemporary urban environments.
Eyeone was a co-curator and featured artist in the Getty Research Institute's L.A. Liber Amicorum graffiti blackbook project, now part of their permanent rare books collection. His work has recently been included in the Pasadena Museum of California Art as part of their Street Cred exhibition and in Dreams Deferred at the Chinese American Museum in Los Angeles.
He is a member of Los Angeles graffiti crews Seeking Heaven and Second To None and publishes the highly-acclaimed journal Lost | Graffiti in the City of Angels.
