Component

Component

+ Auckland, NZ

Born and raised in Grey Lynn, Sparrow Phillips taught himself the art of stencilling. The street was his canvas, his means for critiquing society. Cut Collective collaborations and a shared studio on K Road led to his role as curator of the street art website, streetarse.co.nz. Despite his community focus, his work has been seen throughout New Zealand. Shows such as Picture Perfect in a World of Chaos at Silo Park in 2012 stand out alongside exhibitions at The Dowse, Auckland City Gallery, Dunedin Public Art Gallery and Parnell’s Webb Gallery.

Fluro

Fluro

+ Kapiti Coast, NZ

Fluro is an artist and designer whose more recent focus has been on creating public artworks which combine the influences of graffiti, typography and sign-writing. She enjoys the conceptual, problem-solving aspect of design and takes a similar approach to the walls she paints — the message is key, words are weapons and public walls are an opportunity to speak to people. Her typographic work is primarily inspired by song lyrics, she loves exploring a variety of media and is interested in finding ways to make her work light up wherever possible.

Haser

Haser

+ Auckland, NZ

Haser is an Auckland based graffiti artist with over 15 years experience. Currently, his days are spent driving the creative behind New Zealand’s original gourmet burger brand, BurgerFuel. Haser believes this is the perfect balance between professional and studio work as it keeps the creative juices flowing and allows him to keep his graffiti practice a passion rather than a job. Haser also works as a freelance illustrator and typographer out of his Onehunga studio.

TrustMe

TrustMe

+ Auckland, NZ

“I don’t make art as much as I aught. I talk about it, think about it and make decisions about it everyday, it’s just that it’s other people’s art i’m working with.
When I do make a thing, it’s pretty special. It’s nice to miss something that is actually never too far away.
I’ll always set out to make something meaningful, and then accept that it remains as elusive as it always has. Doesn’t mean I’ll stop trying.” #maybenexttime
