MAU MAU-YOU GOTTA IT-ANOTHER GREAT!

Filed under: mau mau — Tags: — admin @ 7:57 am

 

An established artist on the street art scene and a homegrown southwest talent, Mau Mau has been putting his artwork on canvas and bombing public spaces for over a decade.

 

As well as his exploits in the art world, he has worked on video animations for Dizzee Rascal and The Herbaliser and created album covers and logos for Skitz (including the new release Sticks Man) Rodney P, Roots Manuva and Estelle.

 

 

Mau Mau has quite literally tagged the world – painting pieces all over the UK, America, Jamaica, Thailand, and Australia. His distinctive style often comes with a message – ideas prompted by political and environmental topics and served with a typically ironic British twist. 

 

In the most ironic fashion, graffiti art  has transformed the craft of art and merged it to produce a new form of visual protest; none of which would be possible to view in large

circulation without the aid of the digital camera, a quick upload onto the computer and of course your effort. Graffiti’s witty and provocative nature resonates upon a garage door, a water tower,

a sidewalk, and speaks to millions who may never reach the location before city officials delete it forever. The brilliance of engaging an audience to become co-conspirators is genius.

Although the work is two dimensional it is also a sculptural piece in many ways in view of the objects, building walls, lamp posts etc.
