More About

"We Are The Bronx"

Artist Jim Drain hired NY Tilemakers to fabricate and install this mural in collaboration with the NYPC Department of Cultural Affairs for Art Program and The New York City School Construction Authority (NYCSCA). We made all of the tiles, and the artist and his helper silk-screened the patterns on them. The four themes in the background are winter, spring, aquatic, and autumn, reflecting the Bronx as both an urban and natural habitat. This is the first mural made at our new location in Long Island City, Queens.


School Lobby in LIC

New York Tilemakers consulted, fabricated and installed a tile mosaic for the lobby of a New York City public school for the NYCSCA. We also worked with a conservator to ensure that this permanent installation would stay beautiful and be easily maintained. Designed by artist Ohad Meromi, the mural consists of four panels along a curved wall, for a total of 324 square feet.

The World's Fair

Artist Cheryl Molnar hired New York Tilemakers to create and install a tile mosaic of her winning design for the NYCSCA. We translated her painterly style into glazed, handmade ceramic tiles and Italian glass, showing her composition of scenes re-imagined from the 1964 World’s Fair, held in Flushing Meadows Park. This mural is installed in P. S. 19, in Corona, Queens, which is just east of the famous park, and measures nearly 44 feet in length.
