Intersection – John Aslanidis and Mayanaize Collaboration Exhibition

Intersection is a collaborative exhibition between John Aslanidis and Mayonaize. Aslanidis’ work explores a sensory dimension which exists between sound and vision, whereas graffiti has been a major influence on Mayonaize’ s eclectic oeuvre.

The contrasting approaches result in unique images that merge to become a fusion of sonic vibrations and calligraphic improvised text derived from graffiti.

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.
