Through his paintings, videos, and photographs depicting the city and sky, Billboards Hacker uses his years of research and observation of light to exhibit peaceful visuals while displaying a message about climate change. By seeing the city and sky—together with his message of climate change—Billboards Hacker seeks to remind everyone of our duty to preserve our fragile planet. All the sales of sketches and mock ups of the project helps finance the making of these murals in scale 1 live around New York and soon around the world.
In 2015, he created murals to enhance the local cityscape. The result is two large-scale public artworks, located at 347 Huguenot Street in downtown New Rochelle. Addressing the theme ofclimate change, each mural measures6 stories high x 18’ wide. Impacting the entirety of a building façade, each mural invites the viewer to question: “What have I done today to…end climate change?”
