Harjeet Singh Sandhu owns a sign-making business in New York, but his passion is his art:

Sandhu, a 63-year old artist and signmaker in the Bronx, has crafted an artful mosaic portrait of Mayor Bloomberg that he wants to present to Hizzoner.

“He is my mayor,” Sandhu said. “Some things he does, sometimes people don’t like it. But I think what he does for the city is very good.”

It took Sandhu five months of carefully crafting each piece of colorful glass with pliers, a chisel and a sander to manipulate them into Bloomberg’s likeness.
