Mike Makatron- The creative all rounder who works with an endless variety of mixed media on walls, canvas and paper as well as anything else he can get his hands on at the time. Although Mike is primarily known for being a painter and illustrator, every time we chat he always seems to have a new artistic adventure on the go.
As an active member of Everfresh Studio since 2006, Mike has exhibited extensively through Australia as well as been apart of group shows in Brazil, Japan, Miami and New York. He has also displayed his artworks within private and public collections locally and abroad, including acquisitions by the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra.
His work is preoccupied with the interface between man, beast and machine. Presenting a visual riot that stimulates the eyes and 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.
