Mike Makatron is a Melbourne based Artist who works across a variety of media, working with all types of paint – aerosol, acrylic, oils, and also has a passion for illustration. A prominent street artist and member of the Everfresh Studio, he is equally at home in canvas painting and illustration. Makatron’s work, too, often pulls in opposite directions. His street art is by its nature rooted in a particular place, inscribing itself palimpsest-like as an element in a site’s history, yet it also reflects the artist’s own nomadic existence, consciously participating in a global culture with a significant extension in the virtual realm. Similarly, his work is preoccupied with the interface between humans, beasts, nature and machines, reminding us that in a digital age, human nature itself is becoming ever more machine-like.
