Press: Local Artist Makes Good

At 26, C.J. has already made a name for himself as a designer, animator, illustrator and graphic artist both in the United States and abroad...This past spring he traveled to Israel to join graffiti artists to paint murals with collage and distressed painting techniques on bomb shelters and an indoor recreational center in Israel, at the Gaza border. Artists 4 Israel, the New York based non-profit organization that sponsored the trip, defined the mission as an opportunity to foster artistic exchanges between Israeli and international artists to promote peaceful and multicultural environments.

At the end of the day, after all the politics and struggle, it is still nice to see these stories. Hometown hero returns. Local artist makes good. All of it and then some. We are artists. We are people you know. Just trying to make a little difference. Thank you, C.J.
