J Muzacz is a social practice mural painter, mosaicist, public artist,
community art advocate, and educator. Originally from Houston

numerous large-scale murals across the US and in countries as
far-reaching as New Zealand, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan.
He is also co-founder of The Mosaic Workshop, an artist-run
creative hub at Something Cool Studios where community

completion through collaborative and inclusive mosaic mural
projects of monumental scale.
Past clients and commissions include Facebook, Vice Media,
Anheuser-Busch, City of Austin, HUE Mural Festival, George-
town Arts & Culture, Flint (MI) Public Art Project, CBRE, Tran-

Recent studio work involves J’s signature “Digital Impressionism”
in pixelated pop art mosaic panels depicting vintage and mod-
ern aerosol spray cans in a series he calls “Tools of the Trade,”
inspired by his roots as a street artist.
