Mayonaize (Mayo) moved to Melbourne from New Zealand in 2001. Working frenetically, he quickly established himself within the city’s burgeoning graffiti scene. Over time, he gradually refined his style, paring it back to the bare bones of its current form.",
As both a street artist and as a highly sought-after tattoo artist - with each practice informing the other, and through the refinement of his style - Mayo has created his unique interpretation of calligraphy on the skin, on canvas, and in urban environments.",
Swift, precise, and with almost bio-mechanical movements, his spontaneous approach creates a palpable energy. Mayo’s public works can be seen around Australia and in many overseas locations.
