J Muzacz

J Muzacz is a mosaicist, muralist, public artist, and educator with nearly two decades of experience creating landmark artworks. Producing cutting-edge artwork at the intersection of antiquity and advanced technology, his mosaic artworks blend contemporary photography with ancient handmade processes of mosaic-making. 

Muzacz’s artistic career has evolved naturally from travel, collaboration with diverse communities, and a social practice involving education, having studied Sociology and been a teacher for over a decade. His mosaics are imbued with educational narratives that honor the history and culture of its location, engaging viewers and providing communities with local role models and values to aspire towards.

Muzacz has nearly 20 years of experience creating public art, facilitating community dialogue, and empowering community members to participate in its ideation and creation. In 2018, he co-founded The Mosaic Workshop, where people of all ages and abilities can learn the art of mosaic making through hands-on workshops and ambitious community-led mosaic murals.

Muzacz has created over 30 painted murals since 2020, including his largest yet at over 4,000 sqft, along with over 15 landmark mosaic murals. Through The Mosaic Workshop, he has led the production of five such mosaic murals created by the Austin community, with his largest to date at 650 sqft and 100,000+ tiles at the CapMetro McKalla rail station at the Austin FC Q2 Stadium.
