In a groove.

  3. Big thanks to Tumblr for including Jim Power, aka ‘Mosaic Man’ in their blog Spotlight under the Artists category.
If you’re new here, thanks for stopping by and checking out Jim’s work!
In short, for over 25 years, Jim has created one of the largest and longest lasting public arts projects with his Legendary Mosaic Trail. The trail of whimsical mosaic designs on lamp poles, planters, sidewalks and storefronts throughout New York City are some of the most recognizable and universally acclaimed works by a local artist.
Jim is currently running a campaign on crowdfunding site Indiegogo to help rebuild a portion of the Trail that has been damaged or vandalized over the years. The campaign is winding down, but you can still help by contributing or spreading the word. 
You can read more about Jim and the campaign, see some of the awesome perks available, and donate here:

  7. Some great shots of Jim at work on his “We The People” mosaic mural in 1987. The mural can still be seen today on the corner of St. Mark’s Place and Avenue A in New York City’s East Village.

    One of Jim’s grander masterpieces.

    h/t to Alex at Get Back To Work! and Flaming Pablum for the great find.

  8. Great old clip of Jim at work on a mosaic for Three Dot Dash, by Robert Galinsky.

  9. Jim’s work made a little cameo on the season premiere of NBC’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice last week!

    For their first challenge, the all-stars were tasked with preparing and selling meatballs for charity at two of NYC’s own The Meatball Shop locations. BoweryBoogie reported on the filming back in October.

    The owners of the shop had previously commissioned Jim to build mosaics in the entryways of the Greenwich St and Bedford St locations.

    Team “Power” (Ha!) set up shop at 64 Greenwich St, while Team “Plan B” did so at 84 Stanton St.

    In one of the shots above, you can catch a glimpse of Jim’s work as contestant Gary Busey runs out of the shop to try and hawk some tourists on a double-decker bus into the shop to buy a few balls. Actor and fellow tabloid fodder Stephan Baldwin looks on.

    And the latter shots — yes, multiple shots — show a Playboy Bunny passing through the entranceway of Team Power’s headquarters with a check for $5,000. (That mosaic was actually done by owner Daniel Holzman’s mother, so, while this latter sequence doesn’t have much to do with Jim directly, any chance to post pics of a Playboy Bunny, with a $5,000 check, in a meatball shop, and we’re seizing the opportunity! SEO gold! And, as Team Plan B leader, Trace Adkins, said at one point during the show: “I love beautiful women with big checks.”)

    It’s not every day an artist can say his work was featured on a nationally syndicated network television program.

    Kudos, Jimbo.

    Jim has done several pieces for local businesses over the years. Check out some of his recent work below:
