New York Tilemakers


New York Tilemakers has created and installed murals for several local public schools across New York City.

"City Tree"

Featured Mural

Artist Adam Cvijanovic hired New York Tilemakers to translate his paintings and drawings into a permanent mosaic installation at PS/IS 667. Fabrication of the 21 ft. X 21 ft. “City Tree” began in January 2020 and was completed in September.

The artist himself glazed many of the leaf and architectural tiles, and we did a second round through bisque firing. During the process, we fabricated more than 1,500 subway tiles in 40 colors to illustrate the hidden brownstones and local architectural elements of Cvijanovic’s winning vision.

"We Are The Bronx"

Artist Jim Drain hired New York 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 (NYC SCA). 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 NYC SCA. 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 NYC SCA. 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.

Disclaimer: Murals for the NYC SCA are a collection of the NYC Department of Education, Public Art for Public Schools.


The Worlds We Speak is a permanently installed mosaic mural at Delta’s new Terminal C, at LaGuardia Airport. About 400 square foot in size, this mural includes over 1,200 circles that are embossed with the endoyms of every cultural group in NYC. Five of the spheres represent a different borough, and a sixth one is the tri-state area. The colors show the regional origins of the communities. Flight paths indicate the cities where immigrant groups have come from. This mural is made of glazed earthenware, and was made entirely in our workspace in Long Island City, Queens.
