Arky Maur

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

Maur, who was originally involved in the art world in Germany, has been developing a feel of Art in Australia since he moved here seven years ago.
Maur has been collecting interesting resources including recycled timber and metal signs to design his first exhibition.
He gathers inspiration from Kurt Schwitters and the Dada movement as well as admiring the work of Andy Warhol.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

Arky Maur uses found objects, recycled timber, old tin signs and second hand objects within his work.
The thought that these rescources have been touched and handled by many hands is something that appeals to Maur.
His unique sense of colour and the items he uses creates an individual appeal to his artwork.
