  2. amazing….a lost art again still holding on….a great way to employ people again..producing art that is commercial but human.

  3. Just amazing!
    Im lucky enough to have a few of those here in Portland, and even the ones that are fading away from years past are still beautiful.

  4. This artform lost a true artist and a beautiful person back in March. http://www.artfxmurals.com/ out of Portland lost a member of it’s family due to an unfortunate and tragic snowmobiling accident.

    His art will definitely live on for a long time here, and I hope some will survive in NYC as well.

    RIP Shane Bennett
