SPACES is proud to host Cleveland Foundation Creative Fusion Artist Ryan Jaenke (Cleveland)
This group of international and local artist for the Creative Fusion Residency were chosen to make art in the public realm. Ryan will be painting a mural on a building in the Hingetown neighborhood near the home of SPACES.
Ryan Jaenke is a lifelong Clevelander who has made his mark on buildings across the country. He has shown his work in Miami, Chicago, and San Francisco, often creating ironic signs lifted from the vernacular history of what is seen daily on the streets of Cleveland. Ryan draws inspiration from photographs in historic archives, and from the streets he travels. He is not averse to seeking places that are not pretty or desirable in the traditional sense but finds the human need to post signs and symbols in public spaces fascinating.
Sometimes working with a close-knit group of like-minded artist, Ryan is able to work on larger projects that integrate multiple points of view. For this mural, Ryan has created a personal vision.
