Jack Rowland is a Melbourne-based artist, whose chromatic and saturated landscape paintings aim to offer alternative perceptions of the natural world. Rowland holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Painting) from RMIT University, Melbourne. He has been exhibiting nationally and internationally including James Makin Gallery, Anna Pappas Gallery, Linden New Art, Rubicon ARI, Blindside Gallery, Flinders Lane Gallery and Kunstraum Tapir (Berlin). Rowland received the Hawkesbury Art Prize Highly Commended Award in 2015, and has also been short listed for a number of prizes such as Bayside Aquisitive Art Prize, Albany Art Prize and Substation Art Prize.
Mike Maka is primarily a painter who works in a variety of media, mainly on walls, canvas and illustration on paper. He has travelled and created work around the world, painting the Berlin Wall to the River Ganges. At 20, he received a scholarship to study art in New York, which led to working as a bike messenger for 10 years in 10 cities, and leaving his mark on many walls. An active member of Everfresh Studio since 2006, Mike has exhibited extensively through Australia as well as group shows in Brazil, Japan, Miami and New York, and has works in private and public collections locally and abroad, including acquisitions by the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, as well as working in institutions such as National Gallery of Victoria and MONA Tasmania. His artwork captures a world in which the natural forces fight back against humanity, reclaiming the earth from the uncaring advance of civilisation. Focusing on the friction point between man, beast and machine, Maka presents a message to mankind to step foot outside of the concrete jungle and reconnect with mother nature and the animal in all of us.
Cheers Jack & Mike, for giving us a silver lining to a tough year in the craft brewing industry with this stunning painting!!
