I was commissioned by Red Nose Day to paint a 21 by 14 foot mural of my Liberty image at the Boys and Girls Club on Bedford Ave in Brooklyn. The only problem was I had a week to do it and there was lots of rain in the forecast. It was a bit overwhelming but sometimes everything works out. 


In 1994 I did my first mural of a "Bert" portrait on a cement wall in Tel Aviv, Israel. I had so much fun doing it, and I loved the idea that every day thousands of people walking by this public wall would see a gigantic portrait of Bert. The experience aroused my interest in murals and public art in general. I have done three more murals since then. One is a 25 ft. Rabbi with a Gumball Machine entitled "A Peace Offering" on a private home in the Marigny neighborhood in New Orleans (corner of St. Roch and Chartres Streets). Another mural are two images side by side, one, a Duck on the Brooklyn Bridge, the other is Goat. They are painted directly on the front of a brownstone facing 4th Avenue between Dean and Pacific Streets in Brooklyn. Most recently I was commissioned to paint a 20 ft. Blue Cow inside Soyo, a frozen yogurt shop in Burlington, Vermont. My images work very well on a large scale. I am open to mural commissions of any sort.

In 2009, I re-painted a Rabbi mural that I originally painted on a Faubourg Marigny warehouse in 1995. Check out this video about the project.
