Muralist Jerrod Tobias has a big commitment to Fort Wayne's public art scene, and a growing number of communal paintings to prove it.
Known for his bold designs, and eye-catching color palettes, his latest work in progress is a 300-foot piece, near the Clay Street Railroad overpass and downtown Arts Campus, which will be the city's longest mural.
For a look at the motivation behind such output, WBOI's Julia Meek met with Tobias to discuss his take on the street art "explosion," the conversations public art initiates, and its impact on our community.
