commissions mural

Toledo School for the Arts ( TSA ) director Marty Porter commissioned instructor Andres Fidel Orlowski (above) to paint the mural.

According to Andres, “I tried to represent many of the disciplines which are avidly practiced at TSA : music, dance, painting, science, literature, drama, history, photography, computer graphics, and math.”

“My attitude is that an artist must draw and interpret nature directly. Renowned poet Octavio Paz wrote in a verse: ‘Painting has one foot in architecture and another in dream.’

“It is my feeling that in mural painting this conception is particular fitting.

“This dream is present in the movement and flow of the composition that represents a rupture and an opening—two complimentary aspects of creativity,” said Orlowski.

The original design went through five transformations. The first three occurred before the studies from life. The fourth incorporated the studies from life and was drawn in scale. The fifth took place in the process of painting directly on the wall, which started in March, according to Orlowski.

“The mural embodies the themes of youth, their environment and creativity itself,” said Orlowski.

The 10’ by 26’ acrylic mural was dedicated in June.
