A mural company is working to immortalize Nelson Mandela on a building in Brooklyn.

Sky High Murals has been at work at the corner of 13th Street and Wythe Avenue.

Painter Jason Coatney says he feels a great connection to the piece.

"You know, it could be a few people, but once I put his smile on there, he just has a beautiful face," Coatney said. "It's very humbling. I've painted for about 15 years on the sides of buildings, and I don't know that I've ever painted anything that I respected so much."

Sky High Murals is among the largest outdoor mural companies in the country.
