I barely knew him for a year, I had finally met him face to face a week prior to the unexpected passing. We had spent several months chatting online & he was always more than welcoming & trying to invite me to collab with art. He taught me within a few months more than all my other friends & youtube could. I had finally met someone I could call a mentor, while my art teachers told me in school "I have nothing to teach you, do whatever art you want just have one done each week, etc" He left such an impact to Miami's streetart youth, his name & murals are going out to him, & Im currently making a portrait for his brother Yaakov. I keep underestimating the impact of a stranger or where the lines blur between stranger & friend converge, but at somepoint I must have crossed it to care enough to cry for a few days, mourn & regret not knowing him long enough. I also found out he was a jew after his passing, its comforting to finally see another jew like me delven into the world of street art, I always find it comforting having community in whatever it is I do. May HaShem's face shine upon you Aryeh, your memory as Mr. Fingg is Miami's blessed memory of you. No matter your level of observance, G-d knows all the good you've brought to this world & radiant love to the multitudes of people across the states. You truly are already missed bubba.

Aryeh was a consummate artist, perfectly content to spread joy around, and laughter. Humor was important to Aryeh.

Aryeh brought such positive energy to the Community Arts Program, and we're grateful for knowing him.

I worked at the Hospitality House CAP (Community Arts Program) in San Francisco as a Sub Studio Assistant, and remember Aryeh there as a warm presence and gifted artist.

What is grief, if not love perservering?

Hope, faith, but most of all love perservering to all of Aryeh's family and close friends.

I met Aryeh while working as a ceramic artist at Hospitality House’s Community Art Program. I had the extreme pleasure of introducing Aryeh to pottery on the wheel. He was already making beautiful paintings and drawings. He seemed to have natural ability at any art form he tried and ceramics was no exception. Before long he was creating large beautiful pieces. He always came to the studio with kindness and humor.
With deepest sympathy,

I wish to send my condolences to Aryeh's friends and family from everyone at Hospitality House.

Aryeh frequented our Community Art Program in San Francisco for many years to make art and participate in our exhibitions and community events. He was an incredibly gifted & natural artist and very well liked member of the community.
I was sad when he left the city but excited for his future adventures. I was so saddened to hear this news.

Sending strength and healing to Aryeh's friends & family.

Warm regards,
Janet Williams
