FIGMENT | Solo Art Exhibiton

Anthony Jones, respectively known as Ayjay, is a self-taught street artist from the South Coast of NSW, Australia. With over 17 years artistic experience his practice typically involves the digital creation of vibrant, geometric like constructions which are then transferred through aerosol into large-scale murals or canvas artwork. 

 

Ayjay strives to produce artwork of an organic nature following his artistic intuition. In an effort to communicate states of elevated consciousness through pixels and pigment, his inspiration lies beyond the veil.

 

Designer and painter of the largest street art mural on the South Coast (Dapto, NSW / 300m2+)

Ayjay has applied his eye-catching artwork around the world in countries such as Vietnam, Thailand and India. Some of his most adventures installations to date include painting an entire domestic home and floating a cubby house on an open lake.

 

Ayjay’s background in art doesn't end here, currently standing as the creative director for Urban Art Australia. Founded by Ayjay in 2014, Urban Art Australia is now a leading provider of custom street art murals with both commercial and domestic applications. A business that was personally built from the ground up. 

 

This is a rare opportunity to see an artist with such deep artistic roots and a relentless ambition to introduce a new flavour to the already sweetened street art scene. 

 

This show is not to be missed... 


Ayjay will be designing and painting over 20 original pieces that will be introduced specifically for this one of a kind show. Mediums on display will include... Aerosol Artwork, Digital printing, and installations.
