I'm thrilled with the results of my maternity shoot! Yoni, with his comforting approach, patience and expertise, truly understood my vision and executed it beautifully. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a skilled and understanding professional.

What a life saver! I cannot say enough. One day booking, amazing photos (so hard to choose from as all of them were so good) and only few hours turn around for perfectly touched up final headshots. Best of all the photographer were so patient and kind even though he was so busy with customers before and after our shoot. Highly recommend and will be our go to photo studio for any photo shoots.

The finished product is a top level professional headshot.
Yoni went the extra mile with me as he was patient and generous as his goal is to make sure the customer is happy.
Yoni represents the best of New York City to me, the brilliant artist and unique individual found in the heart of Manhattan.
Tals Studio is a great photographer! 😊He is very professional and efficient in studio and quick with delivering the images. I have worked in the industry for many years and I can tell he knows how to capture a person how they look best. Very good angles and compositions. Very happy with my images and experience!

Highly recommend TALS Studio for professional, quality photo shoots! Pleasant atmosphere, great vibes and energy. Mr. Yoni makes you feel comfortable in front the camera. I love my birthday photos and will return again soon.

Last month I brought a project to Decor. The New Yorker magazine ran an article about my work at NYC Parks, which included a personal caricature. I purchased an original print of the caricature and asked Decor to frame it for me as a gift for my parents. Yosof suggested I also include a copy of the article as a second panel in the frame. He offered to do the layout if I could send him a link to the article. I wasn't confident in how it look but I decided to take his advice and go for it. When I picked it up a couple weeks later, I was absolutely delighted to see how well it turned out. The quality of workmanship was immediately apparent. The caricature and article were laid out in perfectly balanced symmetry within the frame. Decor clearly put significant effort and care into creating this new family keepsake. My parents absolutely love it and have featured it prominently in their house. I have since recommended Decor to several friends and associates. I look forward to working with them again.

Great experience here. Isaac was super friendly and he helped us figure out how to frame some very heavy Italian tiles into a solid frame that we could use as a tray or hang on the wall. Definitely recommend for people looking to frame something special to them.

My wife and I did a photo shoot with Yoni, from Tals Studio, and it was absolutely incredible. I was completely shocked with how well Yoni handled our 1 month old baby girl, while she was awake and sleeping. His photos were incredible, going beyond what we could have ever asked for or imagined. He provided cute outfits for the baby so we got numerous cute photos in different outfits and poses. Yoni took a bunch of family portraits as well. Again, absolutely incredible. I would not only recommend Yoni and Tals Studio to anyone but we will definitely be back to do a 1 year photo shoot.

Added just a few of the incredible photos Yoni took of our daughter and our family. Truly impressed with his work.

Yoni was great! Photos came out stunning. Yoni does not need a lot of time to capture the best shots. My services included maternity milk bath. I received all the raw images and edited photos were returned in 4 days. GREAT SERVICE. Not many photographers are offering all the raw images and the speedy editing, so it is very much worth it. Also- Yoni's prices are extremely reasonable; and he is not compromising the quality of his work. This is great quality for a great price. As a new mom on a budget, this is especially important to me. I will be seeing Yoni for newborn photoshoot very soon! Thank you again!
(TIP: although Yoni has outfit options- bring all your outfits and props and come prepared. You are able to change as many times as time allows. You bring your vision, and Yoni will capture the shot.)
I live in Murray Hill. Yosof did a fantastic job.
I wanted to frame a collage, I made as a teen.
Yosof immediately understand its importance.
He created a shadow box in a gallery frame.
Perfection. Totally recommend this place.
Jane is a brilliant art appraiser. She is Intelligent, insiteful and well connected.

The team at Astro Murals did an outstanding job on my mural from concept design to revisions to the edits. It turned out better than I imagined. They are extremely responsive, follow your guidelines but also share great artistic thoughts/views to help translate your vision into a beautiful mural. During the actual day of painting, they were punctual, courteous, and very focused on quality. Would absolutely use them again!

I recently had the pleasure of working with Astro Murals for a mural project at my business. From start to finish, the team was professional and provided excellent customer service. The finished product exceeded my expectations and has become a stunning focal point in my establishment. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality, creative, and affordable mural work.
Ashcan's instructors are amazing. More than that, the directors understanding of and kindness toward young adults applying to college, and all of the stress that goes with it, is unsurpassed. We are so grateful for the skilled instructors and kind souls of Ashcan!

My daughter has tried a half-dozen art programs in New York City in the past 10 years and Ashcan is the best one by far. The other programs had large and impersonal classes and often spent more time taking students on field trips to museums than on teaching them art skills. While that was fine when my daughter was younger, she wanted more instruction and studio time as she got more serious about her art. Ashcan helped her to develop skills, experiment with mediums, and collaborate with teachers and other students. It has become her second home this past year while she has been working on her college portfolio. Mr. Kim and the instructors are great and they work closely with every student to ensure a highly personalized experience. My daughter has learned so much, it has been amazing to watch her progress. She has won gold keys in the Scholastic art contest and was just accepted early decision to NYU's art program. We highly recommend the Ashcan experience!
These guys are amazing. I’ve been going there for years, even after moving to Brookkyn, I still go to Yosof and his team when I need something framed. They do a fantastic job framing silk scarves. I’ve had both Hermes and Pucci scarves framed here at a fraction of the cost of other stores and the quality is exceptional.
We had a wonderful experience with Yosof and Decor Art Gallery. After visiting a number of framing stores, we returned to Yosof as he provided a competitive quote and seemed the most approachable of framers. He outlined all options, provided a variety of recommendations for frames and gently pushed us in the right direction when needed. Very happy he was there to guide me.
These Artists were a true pleasure to work with. They met with us with enthusiasm to discuss our vision and nailed it to the T. Communication was a breeze! Our project was completed on time, exceeded our expectations and was on budget. I can’t recommend them enough. If your looking for someone to do artwork for you Astro Murals is who you should use. Trust me you will not be disappointed! Looking forward to using them again for our next project. Thank you guys for fabulous work.
Coming from a non-art background I went to Ashcan to get help with my portfolio. It was great working around other people with the same goals and with teachers that are knowledgable and passionate, and it was really helpful to have Mr. Kim there for advice and to always keep me on track with deadlines. After studying there 6 days a week for 8 months I was able to get into all the schools I applied to with very generous scholarships, including an MFA program with a fellowship offer. I feel that Ashcan definitely broadened my horizons in art, and I am extremely grateful to everyone at Ashcan!
The instruction here is very dedicated, patient and kind. When it comes to student work, the instructors will engage you on a level of depth and rigor you will not find elsewhere. In short, Ashcan is sure to help you bring your work to the next level. I'm grateful to have gone here, not only because I got into my dream school, but also because Ashcan was like a "second home"-a place to spend hours honing one's craft, surrounded by creative, inspiring peers. I highly recommend Ashcan for any art/design student!
Ashcan is the best school you can find to prepare your portfolio in NYC. All teachers were very supportive, in Special Mr. Kim; he helped me during the whole application process; it's was fundamental for my acceptance! I really appreciate the entire team from Ashcan!

I found Ashcan after a simple Google search hoping to improve my portfolio so I could get into my dream school, FIT. Sora and Mr. Kim were extremely helpful and patient with me, and explained everything thoroughly before I had started. I had close to no drawing skills whatsoever and I had never touched a sewing machine in my life, but thanks to Mr. Kim and Stefani, who helped with my sketches and garments, I learned many new things and my skills improved dramatically. I got into my dream school and I could not have done it without Ashcan. The environment is very comfortable, you are always surrounded by other passionate students with dreams. It is a little bit on the pricier side, but I think it was worth it, I am very happy with my results. Thank you so much !!!

Yosof goes above and beyond to give the best possible service! He spent so much time looking through prints with me making sure I got the right sizes and made excellent recommendations for frames- he convinced me to use a black frame for one piece of artwork instead of rust and white for another piece instead of black, and he was so right! He went the extra mile and not only printed out great quality pictures for me, but changed the glass on some frames I bought myself, and cut certain photos to make sure they fit those frames perfectly. So glad he was there to guide me and that I listened to him. He is always so warm, friendly, and eager to help and even delivered the frames free of charge. He also gives great prices, I'm so happy I walked in his store! Thank you Yosof!!

I have now purchased 3 different pieces from Decor Art Gallery and will continue to be a repeat customer in the future. Yosof and his nephew, Mike, provide the highest class of customer service that's rare to find these days while offering a wide array of art choices for many different preferences.

Several months ago, I purchased a large custom piece made by Mike (IG @musqas) that hangs as my living room center piece I couldn't be happier with and is truly one of a kind. This past Wednesday I had the pleasure of meeting Yosof, the owner, who couldn't have been more helpful with both selection and framing options. Both have been an absolute pleasure to get to know and I can not more highly recommend a store visit and purchase at this location.

Best,
Alex

I studied in Ashcan for 8 months. Thanks to this school, I was able to improve my skills and knowledge a lot and make an amazing portfolio. The teachers are so professional and enthusiastic by giving their full attention to each students!! And the staffs are so nice and friendly. I’ve gotten into a school with a large amount of scholarship! Especially, director Kim, he contacted the school and helped me to get useful resources about application every time. I'm really grateful to Kim and teachers !!! I’ve studied in many other art schools, Ashcan is the best one ever. I strongly recommend this school!

I’ve been going Manhattan Art since my sophomore year of high school and let me say this, going through this program was 100% worth it. At the end of the day all the staff truly cares about you and your future as an artist. They really help you refine your skill and learn many new techniques. I got into all my schools (including all my reach schools) due to my portfolio that I made at Manhattan Art. All my love and support goes out to the staff the people who founded Manhattan Art.

Such a great experience to go to Manhattan Art. The teachers are so nice. Helped me to get into my top art colleges and get lots of scholarships!
We had a painting on a canvas that needed to be stretched on a frame. Decor Art Gallery did this at a reasonable price (better than a few other options that I got quotes from), and their quality of work was great. They even delivered the finished work free of charge. I'll certainly be back. Thanks, Yosef!

The portfolio classes at Manhattan Art are absolutely amazing. All of the staff here help develop all foundational skills needed to excel in the art world. After taking classes for about a year to build my portfolio, I got into my top school with a full scholarship. I highly recommend Manhattan Art if you are serious about art!

As the principle auctioneer at Capsule & Litchfield Auctions, I have had the pleasure of working with Jane to de-accession several distinguished collections of artwork. She has deep knowledge of the art market, is highly organized and has a wonderful attitude towards art and life. She works diligently for her clients and is a great advocate for them, keeping track of all the little details and making sure that everything is done just right.

I studied in the Flushing and Manhattan campuses of Ashcan Studio of Art as transfer student. I was accepted to my school of choice with a generous scholarship. I didn’t really have good skills of drawing and painting when I first went to Ashcan. Ashcan is full of instructors who are knowledgeable, responsible and accommodating. They often check on every student in the class and always try their best to teach more and help more with the specific project. The entire atmosphere in Ashcan was comfortable, friendly and inspiring. I felt that I made more progress after each project. What I like most about Ashcan is that they don't strictly operate as a business chasing profits, but that they are really art lovers. It was really worthy to study and prepare my portfolio in Ashcan.
Expert in advice on art owned and what to buy
Jane is very knowledgeable and her attention to detail is worthy of any art collection. Her fine art expertise is appreciated among other appraisers, such as myself. Not to mention she is a wonderful individual with a drive for life and art. In the NY appraisal game, she is a breath of fresh air.
