For Immediate Release
World Record Artist Jason Tetlak in Town to Paint Baker Mayfield Mural Downtown
Cleveland, OH – Muralist Jason Tetlak, a Brunswick High School graduate, lifelong Browns fan, and Guinness World Record holder for largest 3D mural will be back in town this week to paint a large Baker Mayfield – themed mural using his signature red-reveal style.
The mural itself will use overlying text to create an abstract design of bright shapes and colors, which will then reveal a hidden message when viewed through a red filter. Cleveland will follow Miami, Jacksonville, Tuscaloosa, and Charleston as cities exhibiting new street art by Tetlak in just the past year. This particular design features a well-known quote from NFL star and Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.
“There is a lot of excitement building around the upcoming season and about the future of the city in general,” said Tetlak. “I think Baker really encapsulates that young, hungry mentality we have in northern Ohio right now, so he was a perfect subject. It’s like the whole area suddenly ‘woke up feeling dangerous.’”
The mural will be painted just outside of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and within eyesight of FirstEnergy Stadium, so game day fans or simply those out enjoying the lakefront can stop by for photos and interact with the art.
“The work I’ve done in other cities has been rewarding, don’t get me wrong,” said Tetlak. “To see a formerly blank wall come alive and to watch people’s faces light up when they find the secret in the art is always amazing no matter where you are. But this is home. To have a piece here that my family and friends will be able to see when they cheer on the Browns this fall is definitely special.”
