The Murals at Bronx Terminal Market
“A Green Bronx”
Designed and Created
Alvarez’ concept was to pay tribute, not only to diversity, but also the sometimes overlooked and possibly neglected green areas of the Bronx. We are reminded to step away from the bricks and move closer to nature when possible.
Local Bronx artist, Andres Alvarez was born in the Dominican Republic and has been based in NY for the past 20+ years. Working out of his apartment, which is also his studio, he still manages to balance his professional work with his personal life.
A self-taught painter, he has been experimenting with art since he was a child. While not formally trained, Alvarez’s creative curiosity always drove him to get better by studying oil painting and composition techniques used by old masters, as well as living master painters who are generous enough to share their techniques with the world.
Andres’ motto is: “Do what you love, right?”

The Bronx Museum Community Mural
“The Bronx Museum Community Mural at Bronx Terminal Market” is a mural inspired by unique scenic outdoor locations in the Bronx, from actual photographs and sketches developed by Mural Artist Lindsey Warren.
The collaboration between Bronx Terminal Market and The Bronx Museum of the Arts is part of a greater initiative to support local Bronx organizations, and make art more accessible to the surrounding Bronx community by bringing public art to Bronx Terminal Market’s pedestrian bridge.
The 20’x40’ vertical mural space is divided into four separate horizontal rectangles, each containing its own scene and color palette that all work together as a gradient color palette. The images showcase the variety of scenic landscapes in the Bronx. Locations featured include: The High Bridge, Ferry Point Park, NY Botanical Garden and Joyce Kilmer Park.
