LYNDHURST, N.J. – Happy birthday to Lyndhurst’s Michael Bell.

Bell, a Lyndhurst native, turns 45 today. The portrait painter, muralist and screenwriter was born April 10, 1971.

Bell is known for his mobster paintings and for his portrait painting clientele, which includes John Gotti and various actors from “The Sopranos,” “Goodfellas” and “A Bronx Tale.”

Bell won first place in the first juried art exhibition he entered at 5 years old. In his younger years, he spent a lot of his time in and around New York City studying art with his maternal grandmother, Violet Vallery, a self-taught artist from Lyndhurst.

Bell is also a anti-domestic violence and anti-bullying activist.
