Jaz Mishap is a muralist and multidisciplinary creative, designer and maker with a background in fine arts. She is of Chinese heritage, hailing from Victoria's Mornington Peninsula.
From large scale murals in public spaces to digital drawing for advertising and communications, her work is ever evolving and spans multiple genres and channels. Her practices and skills include drawing, painting, metalwork, workshop facilitating, community mentoring and curating of spaces.
Mishap has travelled extensively as a visual artist and enjoys documenting her experiences through drawing. She is a lover of using art as a tool to expand ones imagination, explore infinite possibilities and transform dull spaces. In her mural work, she conveys her passion for the curious, unexpected, and visually introduces these ideas into public places with the use of colour, mystical/imaginary forms and movement through spray paint mediums.
Since opening a non-traditional gallery space in Northcote, Melbourne in 2007, Mishap has worked with clients across an array of creative platforms. Her experience spans projects from well known companies such as Mazda and Crown Casino, shires and councils including Moreland, Banyule and City of Melbourne and countless independent local businesses to facilitate, advise and install all manners of visual outcomes. She is currently studying for an Associate Degree in Interior Decorating and Design at RMIT University and working as a freelance visual artist in Melbourne's inner north.
