About this project

I am fully committed to painting a full copy of The Sistine chapel on my NYC studio apt. I am a professional artist and muralist in NYC and I always wanted to experience painting a copy Michelangelo's masterpiece. I finally committed to my bucket list dream. It will not be easy. It has already got a lot of news press...Daily News, 1010 Wins and CBS news as well as Telemundo interview when midway.
