“A Journey Forward … A Covid Remembrance” by Leon RainbowThis new street mural in the Esperanza Neighborhood in New Brunswick was created to reflect on the lives and time lost through the first year of the pandemic. Images were developed through community convening discussions around mourning rites, locally and in Central America. The street mural […]

I’ve painted with a lot of people over the years, but always enjoy rockin’ with my long time friend, Klas! I got a lot of love for this dude cuz we hooked up in the mid-90s and partnered up for a while and worked our way up the ranks in Jersey. He always put in a ton of work though and went on to become a Jersey bombing legend and clean train monster! It was always an experience painting with this dude, whether in a yard or at a wall…talking graff, politics or pretty much anything.
That’s why it was so cool to finally get a chance to paint with him after more than 20 YEARS! We decided to go big and rock some big ol’ styled out roller pieces. Felt just like a time machine back to the 90s…a few beers and lots of laughs…or maybe it was the other way around…I can’t remember. Haha!
Leon Rainbow originally painted the ceiling at John Beech (3rd St) Park in Trenton in 2012. It ran unscathed for about Five years. Eventually, a few tags and scrawls popped up. I touched it up a couple of times. I was contacted by the City of Trenton, Department of Parks and Recreation to repaint the […]
I recently had the pleasure of working on a mural for the Morris Museum in their Model Train Gallery. We painted a 360° mural on all four of the gallery’s walls that depicts typographic lettering and illustrative landscapes including a painting of the Museum itself. The installation is named “Art, Sound and Motion” after the Museum’s mission statement of “Interpreting the past, discovering the future, through Art, Sound and Motion”.
I would like to send a big thank you to Dr. Cleveland Johnson, Ron Labaco and the entire staff at the Morris Museum, all of the generous donors including the Levitans and Andy Frish, and Leo “Mimik” Alban for the assist.
Swing by the Morris Museum and check it out next time you are in the Morristown area!
Here is some new mural work for Elixir Bar & Grill in Edison, NJ. I had previously done some work for them a few years, so here’s some previous mural work as well..haha! Go check them out if you’re in the area for some good Tex Mex eats!
We got the call from Dr. Connor to do a special mural project with the graduating 8th-grade class. We were excited, to say the least. We worked with the art teachers and students to come up with a concept. We wanted to show the different things that they teach at the school and wanted to […]
This was such a fun project! This is a temporary installation to take a garage on a rundown building and make it something interesting to take pictures in front of. We started with the Welcome To Trenton and built the cityscape off of that. I was able to use an existing structure and turn it […]
