Description:  Eddie Bruckner's Fenway PaintBox was completed in May 2017 and is located just steps away from Boston's Fenway Park at the corner of Boylston St. and Yawkey Way. Sponsored by the City of Boston and the Boston Art Commission, Eddie's PaintBox features images of Boston's Citgo Sign, the MBTA, the State House, the Prudential Tower, and the Zakim Bridge.

I use vibrant colors, bold lines, and theusion of mosaic tile as a visual language of happiness, love, and the beautification of physical space. My artwork is about having fun, bringing a smile to people’s faces, and at the same time, providing a unique way of experiencing some of our most familiar objects, places, or people.

My work focuses on lines, shapes, and the integration of an illusion of mosaic tile. I am inspired to use these techniques to create visual parallels of my world impressions. I create an illusion of mosaic tile that provides cohesion to my body of work and serves to provide balance, repetition, movement, and other elements of strong artistic design and composition. I often think about the mosaic element as confetti, to further my goal of conveying fun, exhilaration, and happiness; the mosaic patterns add life and positive energy into my work. Often the elements of my paintings reflect my observations of the visible world and a sense of place, creating a clear, universal aesthetic language on my canvases and in my public art installations. The public art that I create is not just about the completion of the final project, but I believe that equally as important is the process of creating and/or installing the artwork on location with observers and participants.
