This ten year in the making book brings you visual intensity from one of the most travelled and dedicated artists of Melbourne- Mike Makatron. Featuring murals, canvas, installations and sculpture works plus behind the scenes images and tongue in cheek quirky stories from the streets to the jungles in over 50 diverse locations from around the world.
Mike Maka is a painter who works in a variety of media mainly on walls, canvas and illustration on paper. He has travelled and created work around the world, painting the Berlin Wall to the River Ganges. At 20, he received a scholarship to study art in New York, which lead to working as a bike messenger for 10 years in 10 cities, and leaving his mark on many walls. An active member of Everfresh Studio since 2006, Mike has exhibited extensively through Australia as well as group shows in Brazil, Japan, Miami and New York, and has works in private and public collections locally and abroad, including aquisitions by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.
His work is preoccupied with the interface between man, beast and machine. Presenting a visual riot that stimulates the mind, Mike’s art conveys an imperative message to those confined in the concrete jungle to stay connected to the animal within them that lives in the natural world.
He is based in Melbourne Australia, but has been known to wander in other dimensions.
