MARTIN CLAYDON / MR SWEET

[ MARTIN CLAYDON / MR SWEET ]

BORN IN ENGLAND, MARTIN IMMIGRATED TO AUSTRALIA IN 2009 TO STUDY AT AUSTRALIA’S NATIONAL ART SCHOOL AFTER COMPLETING A BA IN FINE ART AT MIDDLESEX UNIVERSITY UK. CLAYDON BELIEVES THAT PHYSICAL SIGHT OFFERS LIMITED UNDERSTANDING INTO WHAT WE SEE.  THROUGH THE DECONSTRUCTION OF OUR SENSE OF VISUAL SECURITY, NEW PERSPECTIVES CAN BE THEORIZED AND SOMETHING ORIGINAL CREATED. CLAYDON’S WORK EXPLORES  A QUEST FOR TRUTH THROUGH HIS USE OF LIGHT AND SHADE AND HUMANITARIAN APPROACH TO HIS SUBJECTS.

IN HIS STREET ART GUISE, MR SWEET IS A MURAL AND PASTE-UP ARTIST. HIS WORK CAN BE FOUND AROUND THE CITY IN THE FORM OF MONOCHROMATIC PASTE-UP ILLUSTRATIONS AND WALL MURALS. MR SWEET'S WORK HAS AN INNOCENT QUALITY AND CULTURAL SENSITIVITY THAT COMMUNICATES TO WIDE RANGE OF DEMOGRAPHICS. MORE SUBTLE THAN DISTINCTIVE, HIS WORK COMPLEMENTS A BRAND WITH STRONG VALUES AND A STORY TO TELL.
