One of these artists was Melbourne based Mike Maka aka Makatron. Makatron has traveled and created work around the world, painting the Berlin Wall to the River Ganges. Makatron’s work is preoccupied with the interface between man, beast and machine. Presenting a visual riot that stimulates the mind, his art conveys an imperative message to those confined in the concrete jungle to stay connected to the natural world.

Damo: How did you get involved with the 50 Bridges programme? Who else was involved?

Mike: I was actually a late invite to the event, the idea came from an old friend, Regan Ha-Ha, on a visit to Singapore some years earlier. The other artists involved were Adnate, Yok + Sheryo, Vexta, Tom Civil and locals artists Trase and Zero.
