Known in the Australian Street Art and Graffiti scene as a muralist and multidisciplinary creative, Mishap is also a maker with a background in fine arts. Her ancestors emigrated from China to Hong Kong, then to Australia, and Jaz was born and raised in Mount Eliza on the Mornington Peninsula. She later moved and spent her adult life based in Naarm (Melbourne, Australia), whilst travelling and painting internationally a few times a year.
In her mural and studio work, she has begun to explore more of her ancestral roots and draw inspiration from mythical beings represented in other Asian cultures. She hopes to turn people's heads with something unexpected and strange whilst highlighting contemporary modern Asian art.
From large scale murals to digital drawing, her work is ever evolving and spans multiple genres and channels. Her practices include digital art and design, drawing, acrylic and spray painting, metalwork, art mentorship and Interior Design. Lately she has been experimenting with implementing lighting installations into her public artwork.
She looks forward to offering more in the Interior Design field after 2022 as an exciting and natural evolution from painting interiors for clients over the past 15 years so watch this space if you want more than a wall designed in your space.
Please get in touch below for all enquiries, murals design or drawing work along with some brief details of your ideas and you will usually hear back within 72 hours.
Thank you endlessly for your interest and support.
