Marino's Restaurant Mural - Hooters Las Vegas
Mythiq artist Albe Wood stands in front of a larger than life mural he created of Dan Marino for Dan's restaurant in Hooters Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Albe created a black and white photo montage using 420 images from Dan's life including his baby photo, wedding, hall of fame induction and many memorable sports moments. The number of photos coincided with Dan's NFL record of 420 career touchdowns. Albe Then superimposed the portrait of Dan dropping back to make a pass using transparent colors in a way that blended the portrait with the photos. The impressive art was transferred to 80 individual 12x12 inch ceramic tiles and permanently installed in the restaurant lounge. The mural was a hit with patrons and staff and found it's way onto the menu covers.
