The Work at LynnMall:

Concept and place are essential to Component’s work. Juxtaposing characters with surprising backgrounds is a hallmark of his art. The various pieces created for the corridors in LynnMall serve as way-finders to help locate the bathroom facilities while also talking about the importance to pause and take in your surroundings. Take a leaf from the book of the children at play in these paintings, live in the moment and let time be.

The Artist:

Born and raised in Grey Lynn, Component taught himself the art of stencilling. The street was his canvas, his means for critiquing society. While holding a community focus, his work has been seen throughout New Zealand on both walls and in galleries including exhibitions at The New Dowse, Auckland City Gallery and the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.
