Al Held Inspired murals

The interior design team at Bergdorf Goodman had me create Al Held inspired murals for the 6th floor. 





And here is a picture some passerby Instagramed of me working.

BG Documentary: Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf Goodman


A new documentary about Bergdorf Goodman is being released in theaters May 3rd. They filmed the movie while I was working on my 57th street Christmas Windows in 2011 and I have a brief appearance. It is so thrilling to see my cowrorkers, friends and colleagues captured at this moment in time at a place I've worked for the past 7 years. Click to watch the trailer.

Here is a synopsis of the movie:
"It's the most mythic of all American emporiums—and the scene of many an ultimate fashion fantasy. Now audiences get a rarified chance to peek behind the backroom doors and into the reality of the fascinating inner workings and fabulous untold stories from Bergdorf Goodman’s iconic history in Matthew Miele's Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf's."

Quirky Textual Paintings on sale at Jonathan Adler stores in NYC

Combining my love for old hand painted signs and eccentric lettering I've created a series of framed paintings now on sale at Jonathan Adler Stores in NYC. Using vivid color I wanted these works to bring a Pop sensibility to strange sayings, quirky words and humorous expressions.
