MUNK ONE

MUNK ONE a.k.a. Jose A. Mercado is a contemporary American Illustrator and Fine artist well known for creating Artwork for many major label bands like Avenged Sevenfold, Bullet for my Valentine, Korn and My Chemical Romance. He is also known for working with world renowned brands, recognized for their artwork and creativity. These include Upper Playground, Tribal Gear, True love & False idols and more. His Fine art has also gained much attention with no signs of slowing.

His style can seem very dark and serious at first glance, filled with undertones of politics, religion, personal experiences and emotions. Alternately much of his work can also be bright, beautiful, fun and positive. These elements seem to coexist throughout much of his work. Proficient in both traditional and computer media, he is comfortable using whatever methods his projects call for.

After many successful years of working full time in the apparel and merchandise industries as an employee, much of his knowledge and technical expertise has been gained from hands on experience. In 2006 Munk One decided to focus on creating his own brand of art while using his website www.MUNKONE.com as the vehicle to share his creativity with the world.

During the 2008 election Munk One created a striking portrait of the then Presidential candidate Barack Obama. It was seen at bus stops all over the state of Pennsylvania and was also used for stickers, T-shirts and limited edition signed and numbered poster runs. He also created a second very popular design entitled “YES WE CAN” for a limited edition sticker run available through his website with proceeds going directly to the Obama election campaign.

In 2009 Munk One was featured in Juxtapoz Art Magazine issue #96.
