With the Upper Cup X That One Shot show fast approaching, we took 10 with Melbourne artist A. Mac….
Where are you from / based: Melbourne
Describe your work or style:
Mixed media splashed on stuff until something takes form, which is patterns and fruit at the moment.
Did the fact that this piece was for a major cause change they way you looked at and approached the project?
Not really, it just stemmed off what I am currently working on.
Can you tell us a bit about your piece?
I drink way too much coffee, so I thought it was a good representation of my own habit.
How did you decide upon your name / tag?
Rearrangement from my nickname from school.
Who or what motivates you?
My studio (The Artshole) – Everyone is constantly pushing themselves, always killing it.
Who is your biggest creative inspiration?
Probably Reka, seeing him go from track-side characters to full time artist working out of Germany; it’s the dream.
Who are you currently listening to?
Always drum and bass; makes you work a little harder.
Who is your favourite artist of all time?
Ooh, that’s a tough question. Probably Monet – the introduction of short quick brush strokes resonated with me in art school.
If you could collaborate with anyone, who would it be?
Saturno the Creatorr, that dudes stuff is rad.
