MEAR ONE (Kalen Ockerman, b. 1971, Santa Cruz, CA) is a contemporary American artist based in Los Angeles.
Mear is a graffiti artist form Los Angeles. With his amazing murals all around Los Angeles. If you are in LA you are bound to run into one of his murals they are just that dope. Not only just painting in LA but all over the world and country. Mear is considered to be “The Michelangelo of Graffiti” for the way he has revolutionized the graffiti game with his characters and the use of depth from just the 2D form of graff. Mear is also one of the first persons to bring the “Live Art” aspect of graffiti by painting in front of crowds like a show. Mear has a dope website and blog that you can check out and see more of his work. A true innovator to the graffiti game in Los Angles. Respect.
