Backyard Mural

Commissioned Mural Painting

Acrylic on concrete. Bushwick, Brooklyn. 2015.

We were in need of something beautiful and inspirational to look at in our new backyard and Haena delivered. With just a few words of the kind of ambiance we’d like during our time outside, she knew right away the kind of atmosphere we were looking for. We have been admirers of her artwork so we completely trusted her with whatever concept she decided on. Needless to say, we are incredibly pleased with the results — Haena has created an urban oasis in Brooklyn!

When Rina and John told me the kind of vibe they wanted for their backyard, I knew instantly what I wanted to create for this family's favorite place to relax and have fun.



The family's love of nature, and the ocean, brought me to create a piece that reflects the kind of things you would see if you were underwater…sea forms and shapes embracing, tickling, and gliding by you while swimming. I wanted to bring the ocean to them–not as admirers of the ocean, but as one with the ocean.
