Mayonaize “remixes” the pitch for Nike Football X

Melbourne based graffiti artist Mayonaize is already considered Australia’s premier Calligraffiti artist, so when we approached him to create an immersive work of art for Nike Australia’s latest project, he knew he was going to take his work to a whole new level.

The task; to create two artworks to fill two indoor soccer pitches for Nike’s international indoor soccer tournament – Nike Football X. The catch, the pitch has to be “remixed” by the artist for two tournaments.

Located in Melbourne, Australia, the pitches themselves are housed in a secret location known only to the lucky few to be invited to spectate and those good enough to play.
Armed with no more then a collection of mops, known more widely for their excellent cleaning abilities than their use as an artistic tool. Mayonaize personally customises the mops into oversized brushes capable of creating the long sweeping lines characteristic of his work.

After 3 long days, and countless litres of paint, the first stage of the multi-layered work is complete. Fortunately, for those not lucky enough to get an invite, Melbourne based photographer Nicole Reed was on hand to capture the entire process.

Collingwood Power Station

With the support of CitiPower Powercor, The Neighbourhood Justice Centre and City of Yarra, Juddy Roller transformed the Collingwood power substation at the corner of Easey Street and Wellington Street into one of Melbourne’s most iconic pieces of public art.

The graffiti treatment was a collaboration between some of the most sought after and influential contemporary street artists including Rone, Adnate, Mayo, Guido Van Helton and Askew. The monochromatic artwork was carefully curated, balancing community aesthetic and implementing subtle graffiti deterring features. Background and portraits by Askew, script by Mayo and photo realistic portraits by Rone, Guido and Adnate.

The power station is an stand-out example of how street art and graffiti aesthetics can be combined to create a lasting, positive impression on the community whilst having a strong anti graffiti and impact.e9
