Greg Puchalski admired Andy Warhol’s work and wanted to create a tribute to him when he died. At the time he was painting for an outdoor advertising company and he approached them to get permission to do this on his own time. They agreed and donated the billboard space for the mural.

In a true form of tribute, Mr Puchalski did the mural in a style influenced by Andy Warhol. It was first displayed in Oakland and later moved to a spot along West Liberty Ave just outside the Liberty Tunnels. Panels from the mural were stolen at one point, but later recovered. It's no longer on display and we haven't been able to find out what happened to it once the panels were recovered.
