Here's an in-progress look at the building-size mural going up on the southeast corner of 11th Street and First Avenue... Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra is creating mural showing Michael Jackson as a child and adult...

... and by early evening yesterday...

Kobra expects to have the mural completed by Wednesday.

His work "utilizes bright colors and bold lines while staying true to a kaleidoscope theme throughout his art. The technique of repeating squares and triangles allows him to bring to life the famous people he depicts in his images."

And a sampling of his work from around the world...

Hope it’s not near a playground.

The younger Michael doesn't look like Jackson.

It should be faxing a corresponding Kevin Spacey mural
