MurOne

Iker Muro (MurOne) is an illustrator and graphic designer who began creating public murals in 2002.  Born in Bilbao, Spain, Muro describes his work as “an acid mixture of pop culture, graffiti, illustration and graphic design.” As a youth, he began painting on skateboards, and drawing caricatures of teachers and classmates at his desk in the back of the classroom.  He went on to complete his studies in graphic design and has worked in many different disciplines including graffiti, graphic design, prints and large-scale murals.


Muro’s vibrant, bold murals strike a distinctive balance between design and art.   His work draws from his extensive international travels, and he takes inspiration from whatever city he is painting in.  “Travelling and discovering different cultures is a gift,” he says.  “I feel lucky to make my living with what I love, I don’t know what will happen in the future, I don’t have a job and a stable life, but painting and giving life to places that don’t have any is very gratifying.”

Some of his past projects include artwork for Redbull, The Crocker Art Museum, The Sacramento Kings, Folsom Cordova Unified School District, Midtown Business Association, and countless small businesses.


Currently he works in spray paints and acrylics. His work shows off his versatility – some pieces appear as mystical dreamscapes in rich shades of blue with geometric overlays, some are hyper-realistic and monochromatic. Pawn has been part of a few different graffiti crews, including Ain’t Life Beautiful (ALB) and Legends of Rare Designs (LORDS). And as focused as Pawn has been on his successful painting career lately, he says he still gets the itch to the hit the streets every now and then when his days get to be a little too mundane.


“Sometimes it’s good to be in a grimy place,” Pawn says. “I’ve seen some crazy stuff just going and painting… You get stories out of it all; you’re going on adventures.”
