    Pictured in front of a store metal gate featuring Michael in Brooklyn, New York is "Willie The Entertainer" the winner of the 2014 Michael Jackson Festival of the Arts hosted by Katherine Jackson in Gary Indiana, to celebrate the 56th Anniversary of Michael Jackson's Birthday. His grand prize was a check for $5,000.00 Willie is only 7 years old and says he loves and is inspired by Michael Jackson to dance. "I have couple more words to say. Michael Jackson never dies, Michael Jackson is Forever" ~ Willie The Entertainer.
    Willie is in New York to try out for the Apollo Theatre.
    ~ Follow Willie ~

    The artwork ~Michael is portrayed in this "We are the Greatest 'I am in Good Hands' mural painted by world renowned artist 84 yrs old Franco Gaskin on roll-down security gates on 125th St. in Harlem US by an artist dubbed the “Picasso of Harlem”
    84 yrs old artist Franco Gaskin painted 200 murals over a 35 yr period turning the street into a tourist attraction and he is known as “Franco the Great” to tourists from Japan, Sweden and Brazil. As new modern gates are added to the shops Franco's work is lost but state officials are trying to find a home for his surviving gates which number around 25, in an outdoor art gallery. In an effort to beautify Harlem in 1978, artist Franco Gaskin began producing murals on the dreary metal gates for storefronts on historic 125th street. The security gates had been adopted due to the 1968 riots that followed Martin Luther King Jr.‘s assassination. As one shop owner stated, “until Franco came along, 125th Street looked like a battleground. Now it’s an alfresco art gallery.” The street is still referred to as “Franco’s Blvd.”
    As of last Summer, the Harlem Community Development Corporation was working on a plan to rescue the remaining murals that Franco painted. Hopefully, the metal canvases will be placed inside frames hung between First and Second avenues to create an outdoor gallery.
    Franco has received many invitations to paint wall murals in other countries such as France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Caribbean Islands and several African countries. His works are found throughout New York City and in other countries include murals in schools, nurseries, bars and nightclubs. Franco has won several awards, and is featured in several books. His is a fascinating story !

    Tribute to Michael titled 'Legend' on the wall at 5Pointz, a graffiti covered warehouse, at Jackson Avenue and Crane Street in Long Island City, Queens, New York City, whose murals were exhibited mainly on the exterior walls of the building, drawn by artists from all over the world. Said to be one of the world's premiere graffiti meccas, 5 Pointz showcased some of the finest pieces of writers from across the globe. Situated in Long Island, New York, 5 Pointz covered over 200,000 square feet of area and boasted upwards of 350 pieces and murals covering its walls.
    This massive industrial building complex was painted from end to end, top to bottom and encompasses 2 city blocks in its entirety.
    The building was demolished in November 2014.

    A great mural by graphic artist out of Longmont, Colorado.

    In 2009 she painted a four portrait mural depicting Michael as a child in 1958 and through to Michael as a "Moonwalker" in 2009.
    People stopped by the outdoor mural, on a vacant garage owned by his uncle, at the corner of Third Avenue
    and Lashley Street in Longmont to take pictures and place their own tributes and candles at the base of the mural in 2009.

    "On the Rocks" ~ Michael Jackson is featured on several of the rock paintings in Santa Cruz, Tenerife, opposite the Tenerife Auditorium.
    The huge block breakwater protecting the Auditorium from the Atlantic were transformed in 2011 by a Bulgarian artist
    who turned the dull shapes into an unusual outdoor art gallery by painting 100 portraits of famous musicians on the rocks.
    To date there are over 200 portraits there!

    SANTA CRUZ -- Graffiti artists paid their respects to Michael Jackson last weekend at Bill's Wheels Skateshop by painting a mural as large and colorful as the King of Pop himself.

    A team of eight graffiti artists travelled from as far away as Los Angeles and Santa Rosa to spray-paint a 1,400-square-foot memorial mural honoring Michael Jackson's music and memory.
    The artwork, painted from Friday to Sunday, is on the east-facing wall of the business at 1240 Soquel Ave.

    "It is one of the best paintings I have ever seen," said Bill Ackerman, owner of Bill's Wheels.

    The mural's colors pop with precision and movement against a black background, drawing attention to the centerpiece -
    - an 8-foot portrait of Jackson's face staring at the east parking lot.

    The portrait artist, "Natural," also painted a life-size image of Jackson in an iconic pose -- right arm pointed to the sky, with his head hidden by a white fedora hat that matches his coat.

    "It really captured Michael Jackson," said Darian O'Neal, an employee at Bill's Wheels who saw the production begin Friday. "It started out as a big brown blob, and now it really does look like him."

    Ackerman's shop has been a forum for graffiti art for more than 15 years. Every few months someone comes in and paints over the previous work.
    "If someone wants to paint on the wall, and they won't be intimidated by the surrounding work, I am not going to say no," Ackerman said. "I try to support the art in a legal way."

    There is another wall behind the skate shop that graffiti artists use to practice and develop skills, but the wall hosting the Jackson mural elevates prestige.

    "These artists were all in their 20s," Ackerman said. "They only used the good stuff for this, and they know what they are doing."

    The Artists:
    Unknown Artists in their 20s
