Gregg Bernstein

For the past twenty years I have dedicated myself to enriching communities with vibrant and imaginative murals. My diverse body of work can be seen on the walls of almost every neighborhood in Boston and several surrounding towns. I believe that bringing large‐scale public art to communities can help change the entire feel and attitude of the people occupying that space.
My work undeniably brings life to its neighborhoods. Many of my pieces incorporate history along with community landmarks and community members. As the Assistant Director of the City of Boston’s Mayor’s Mural Crew, I had the opportunity to work with hundreds of Boston teens. I believe that when this enormous piece of public art is about the community, by the community, it can give a real sense of history and belonging that can be magical.
